Spray Painted Mason Jars: By Just Another Day in Paradise

Howdy my fellow CSI Project readers. My name is Larissa and I can be found in my little blogging heaven
I heart doing all things creative. On any given day you will find me sewing a little, crafting a little, decorating a little, cooking a little, and momma-ing a lot. One of my favorite things to use in any project is spray paint and Krylon is DEFINITELY my go to paint. Spray paint makes everything better.
Today I am sharing a super easy and super lovely spray paint project just right for your Easter table.
Easter Mason Jar Planters
                                                                                                                       All you need:
mason jars, any shape and size
several of your favorite springy colors of Krylon spray paint
small bag of potting soil
some pretty flowers…make sure they grow in small groups
I chose alyssum, perfectly light and fresh
Getting started:
With your jars flipped with the mouth down, spray paint each jar the color you want. The first coat should be a very light coating, not covering all the way. After the first coat sets for just 10 minutes, you can follow up with a second coat. Repeat until you have the coverage you want.

After they have dried 24 hours, we can transfer over our spring plants. Make a paper funnel and place it in the mouth of your jar. Slowly scoop in potting soil.

Fill just over two thirds full, leaving plenty of room for your plant.

                                                                                           Separate your flowers into natural smaller groups.

Transplant your flowers into the jar. Add in any extra soil around the plant that is needed to fill the jar.

Repeat with all the jars. They are super lovely just as is, but for Easter they need more, don’t ya think?

I found some bunny silhouette’s that I cut out from white vinyl. Then I applied my little bunnies to one side of the jar.

Repeat with all the jars, some of the jars, all the same bunnies, different bunnies. You call the shots. I used different shapes and I left one jar plain.

Line them up on your table for a simply lovely Easter decoration.

    Super cute idea. I have a black thumb and can’t grow a thing but weeds – but this would be so cute to do just to hold utensils or pens and pencils. So cute!!!

    I never thought of spray painting my mason jars. I have SO many. I’m loving this idea and since plants don’t do so well outside where I live, what a great way to get the flowers I’m craving!

    I’ve never thought about spray painting canning jars. I’m thinking they would look cool spray painted with stained glass spray paint….
