I had a few mason jars stacked in our basement when we moved into our new home over the summer. So I asked myself what I could do with them. They were just sitting there and were begging to be used in a new craft project. I figured I could use these old mason jars in a new décor project. So here is a list of what I started with for materials.
Materials for Fall Mason Jars:
3 Large Mason Jars
Acrylic Paint or
Wash up and clean off your mason jars
It’s important to clean off your project before you decide to paint them. You don’t want any dirt or dust sitting under the paint. Otherwise, the paint is going to come off at some point. So, I washed them off with water and soap and made sure that the mason jars were dried off good before I started painting.
Start painting in your choice of color
The next step is my favorite part because you get to be creative in the choices of colors you want to use. Obviously, I went for a Fall vibe. But I decided to pick neutral colors. The brown is an acrylic paint in lite mocha and the white was a chalk paint in the color plaster. Start painting your mason jars after you’ve dried them off. I used a couple of layers to make sure the paint was on thick and that I wouldn’t see any streaks. This is the paint brush I used from Walmart.
Add your choice of finishing pieces
Before I added the finishing touches, I made sure I touched up a few areas and that they were also dry. For my choice of finishing touches, I added twine and Fall themed sunflowers. All of the flowers I had bought were from Walmart. And I have to say that they had some really pretty colors for Fall. There were a ton of choices to choose from. But I knew that I wanted to use sunflowers for this project.
What to do for the Fall entryway table
After the mason jars were finished, I added them to my table in our entryway. Although the mason jars looked pretty by themselves, you can add a few décor pieces to bring it all together. I had some pretty Fall leaves and pumpkins to add on the table. But you could place anything on your entryway table as long as it fits within the theme and the colors. I’d love to add a large sign above the mason jars to complete the whole theme.
Here is the finished look of the Fall entryway table. I think it ended up turning out better than I had expected. And this project only took me a few hours to complete. It’s seems to me that it is best to go with your instincts. Before I had planned out this craft project, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the brown paint. But I actually love this color and I am so glad I made it the main choice instead of as just a pop of color. If you liked this project, let me know in the comments below.
