I’ve been seeing a ton of new mason jar ideas floating around Pinterest lately, so I decided to try my hand at a few! The storage department in my office area for things like pens, pencils, paint brushes, etc. has really been lacking. I love using things for unintended purposes, so mason jar = instant paint brush holder. The process was incredibly easy. It’s crazy that I haven’t tried it before. All you need are a few mason jars, acrylic paint in your color choice, and maybe 5 minutes, tops.
I especially love how you can achieve absolutely any color and keep the glossy glass finish on the exterior. Genius. I only made two of these for now, but I’d love to make a few more. I went with a paintbrush holder, but I could easily see them used for several other things. Pencils, flowers, makeup brushes?
These few small pops of color are just the inspiration I need at my desk
How about you guys? Any mason jar projects? Anyone else attempted the painted option? I’d love to see what other uses are out there for them!
