DIY: Decorative V-Day Mason Jars

I've been working on lots of Valentine's Day projects this month. Mostly because I'm obsessed with the color pink!

Here is my Valentine's project of the day:


I started with an idea I saw on Pinterest {of course}. I bought a box of 12 mason jars a while back from Walmart and used this acrylic paint from Michael's. 


For the second jar, I used this mini vase I had left over from my V-Day candy buffet. This paint is from Michael's as well, but it didn't spread nearly as well.  


To paint the jars, I just poured paint inside and moved the jar around until it was all covered. 


As I said, the pink paint brand didn't work as well, so I had to use my finger to spread it a bit. My intention was not to make this a finger painting project, but oh well! {My ring finger looks like Skeletor here, I swear it's just the angle!}


I got these shapes from the Silhouette store and cut them with vinyl.
