DIY || Ball Mason Jar Vases

May 01, 2013




I just adore these traditional all-american Ball Mason preservation jars.  They automatically bring back memories of Thanksgiving as our neighbor's would (and still do!) gift us with the most amazing cranberry chutney you have ever tasted preserved in these Ball Jars. Well, I'm helping Ball in their 100th Anniversary celebration as their journey started in 1913 in Muncie, Indiana (can you believe I have friends that live there!)  And they are commemorating this jar that revolutionized the home canning process with a beautiful limited-edition Ball Heritage Collection Pint Jars.  How am I celebrating this jar anniversary?..... with spray paint and ranunculus of course!!

So it all begins with a jar that looks like this-  I just added this awesome Valspar paint (primer and paint in one) in Satin Encounter (this is the name of the color).  I applied two coats and then spray painted gold the lids with a primer first and then two coats of metallic gold paint.  I adore the shade of blue combined with the gold!


What is better than one Ball Mason Jar?  Why five of course!!  


And did I mention they are 100% Made in America and BPA Free?  Need 'em? want e'm? You can get them here.  What are you celebrating today?
