DIY Farmhouse Mason Jar Vase
Supplies needed to make these daisy flower mason jar vases:
(I’ve added a handy Amazon shopping guide below for everything you need)
- Paint Brush
- Mason Jar
- Yellow acrylic matte paint (I got mine from Joann’s but you can find it here on Amazon)
- Baking Soda
- Waverly White Chalk Paint
- Jute twine
- Plastic spoon for mixing and paper plate to mix on
DIY Chalk Paint Recipe
- 1 TBSP baking soda
- 2 TBSP acrylic paint (the ratio is always 2 to 1)
I ended up using 2 TBSP baking soda and 4 TBSP paint mixed together to cover the whole jar. The important thing to remember is that the ratio is always 2 parts paint to 1 part soda.
Ratio = 2 parts paint to 1 part baking soda
The first thing to do to get started is to mix together the baking soda and the acrylic paint. It will be a thicker consistency, which is just what you want. Mix really well.
Next paint the mason jar, allowing for time to dry between coats. The drying time is important!
If you don’t wait long enough the paint will come off in sections when it is drying. I applied 3 coats of the yellow paint, making sure to also paint the top of the jar.
Tip: Let the paint dry completely before adding another coat!
Use Jute Twine for a Country Touch
After the jar has been painted and is completely dry, it’s time to start wrapping your jute twin around the top of the jar. I wrapped it many times until the top of the jar was covered. Finish it off by tying the leftover string in a simple bow.
Next using the Q-tip and Waverly white chalk paint, dip the top of the Q-tip into the paint and make a small circle on the jar (just dabbing it on will leave an open space in the middle of the dab).
Then add 3 more circles with the Q-tip to create the daisy. Keep doing this around the jar until you have your desired look.
Tip: Don’t just dab; make an actual circle!
Allow to dry completely. Add some greenery and flowers and set it on display.
Here’s the finished chalk paint mason jar – I love it! Looks great sitting on a small wood slab on your counter or on a side table on your porch.
More Ways to Use Chalk Painted Mason Jars
Even though these jars would look beautiful on their own, here are a couple more ways you can use these DIY mason jar projects. Add a hanging string or wire to the jar and then hang from a wall bracket like this one for some country style wall decor.
Drop a tea light or a short thick jar candle inside, light it and you’ve got the perfect farmhouse style candle holders.
These pretty daisy mason jars would also look perfect at a farmhouse wedding – you could use 3 painted jars of different size on each guest table. Paint them using your wedding colours and then fill with wild flowers. Add a few tealights and a bit of fresh greenery and you’ve got a very pretty table center piece!
