Craft Corner: Painted Mason Jar
Every summer, I become obsessed with crafting and my Arts & Crafts board gets tons of new pins. This year, I found the painted glass jars post from Pop Sugar and knew I had to try it out! I followed her directions and came out with these lovely, colorful painted jars!

-Mason jar with lid
1. Select the color you would like to paint your jar. Squirt about 2 tablespoons of paint into the bottom of the jar.
2. Screw the lid onto the jar and shake the jar until paint covers the entire inside surface. Your arms may get tired, but don't give up! The paint will cover the entire inside eventually! Use a paintbrush to touch up any parts that were missed during the shaking.
3. Remove lid, flip the jar upside down, and place on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Leave the jar drying for about 20 minutes before moving the jar to a new place on the parchment paper to avoid it adhering to the parchment paper. Leave for another 20 minutes.
4.Flip the jar over and wipe any excess paint from the rim. Once completely dry, place the jar on a parchment covered cookie sheet in the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature.
5. Display your beautiful new jar!
