Holiday Metallic Jars

TWELVE DAZE OF CHRISTMAS PROJECTS: 

 

Christmas day will be here in no time so lets get started on some simple and stylish projects that don’t cost a lot of money. I love this one; metallic Mason jars; something that can be used year-round but looks particularily great during the holiday time.

 

Holiday Vintage Metallic Jars

Needed: Various sized Mason-style jars; preferably with raised lettering or designs on the outside, metallic spray paint such as Krylon, a medium sand paper, floral sprigs or votive candles.

Assembly is easy: 1/ Wash and dry the jars inside and out. 2/ Spray the outside of the jars with 2-3 very thin spray coats of paint; letting dry between each spray. Note: do this outside for good ventillation. I find that spraying within a large cardboard box helps keep any overspray contained. 3/ Once completely dried, lightly sand away some of the paint over the raised areas, edges and corners. 4/ Place a votive candle in each jar and watch the flicker through the sanded areas or, use as a vase by placing sprigs of greens or flowers in the jars.

Here’s some other examples of vintage metallic jars (photos are not mine):
