((handmade monday)) upcycle jars into modern vases

Hi, I'm Michelle from Twig. My husband and I run a creative boutique where we sell handmade wooden products as well as specialize in brand design and new product development. I'm happy to be here today to share a favorite "nap time" project. I've been a long time follower of Kim and her talents and couldn't be happier to see that soon she'll be making to-do lists for her little one's nap time as well!

I don't know about you but I can't seem to throw out everyday glass jars and before I know it, a collection of them have gathered dust. Spray paint being one of my best friends, I decided to pull out my classic gold and a few jars and actually put them to good use.

Supplies Needed:
Glass Jars or Vases
Spray Paint [color of your choice]
Painters Tape
Round Foam Brush

Simply tape the pattern desired on each jar and spray in the uncovered areas. One reason I like gold spray paint is because it adheres well; no need for more than one coat of paint. For the polka dot jar, I sprayed the paint onto my painting wheel and dabbed the round brush into the paint, quickly then pushing it onto the jar.

Put a few succulents, desk utensils, treats, or your collection of buttons in each jar and you've got a 15 minute solution to all your organizational + decorative needs!


Thanks to Michelle for sharing this fun project with my beloved readers while I'm in Texas! I for sure have a ton of jars & vases I can transform with this great DIY. Make sure you guys check out the Twig blog & shop...that husband & wife duo is just so dang inspiring! Have a great week, you guys....I mean, Y'ALL. :)
