Latex Painted Mason Jars for Valentine’s Day

Latex Painted Mason Jars for Valentine’s Day

These are vintage mason jars I painted for Valentine’s Day using latex paint. The vintage jars are my favorite! I sold these sets. I almost wanted to keep them All! But… I’m already over flowing with mason jars, literally! LOL.

I did these jars as a test projects with latex paint. I used Valspars test sample sizes. I did these before I started to document my mason jar crafts…

A mix of colors I made from the samples. I used Floetrol with my latex paint to make it smoother and minimize brush marks.

You also want a smoother finish brush painting buy a good paint brush. Its worth the money and if you take care of it… it will last! 🙂 Purdy or the like.

You can see I distressed these and the paints colors sanded different on the one jar. I dig it but didn’t expect it.

Using the latex paint I recommend a quick sealer between coats if you can. I just use flat clear coat spry paint and do a quick light spray between coats. The paint can drag when you apply more coats.

Be light handed adding more coats of paint.

These jars I added wooden glitter hearts with twine ties. I bought a bunch of plain wood hearts, decorated them and drilled holes for the twine. I decorated the glues the hearts together.

I drilled a hole big enough to fit some twine through. I love these little wooden hearts! 🙂

These hearts I just added wood stain and the hearts are a natural wood. Twine wrap and tied through the heart again.

So here we are using latex paint! It works. Make sure you use a clear top coat to protect the paint for a lasting finish. Clears will come in gloss, flat/matte and satin finish. I used flat/matte spry paint.

Also do not soak the jars, they can be quickly washed then dried or whipped down with a damp cloth.

Have you painted mason jars or glass with latex paint before?
