Watermelon Mason Jar Tutorial

Watermelon mason jar tutorial.

I have a collection of fruit painted mason jars… Today is a watermelon painted mason jar!

Spray paint that mason jar! Painting tips here.

This is Krylon Watermelon. They are the only one I could find with a watermelon color and I could only find it at Walmart in my area.

As pictured above I used a green for the lid. Valspar and Rust-Oleum have that color.

Most certainly you can use acrylic paints. Im a spray fan over the brush paint.

For this tutorial Im using a stamp method for the seeds.

You could hand brush paint or even use a permanent black marker to make your seeds.

I have a thing for organic style stamping so that is what I used. As shown above I cut two tear drop shapes out of craft foam.

And then glued them to a dead battery of all things! Ha ha. It was there… it worked… I can pick it off when done and recycle the battery.

I sprayed a bit of black into a spray paint cap. Use some sort of enamel paint or stamp ink if you’d like. Or marker like I mentioned above.

Ive used a marker, works great, its just not a ‘messy’ organic style stamp.

I wasnt a fan stamping with acrylic paint… you could use it though. I found it too blobby and ‘flat’.

I used an extra piece of the foam to blot before the stamp hit the jar. The spray paint is like water.
