Gold-Dipped Mason Jars

Hey there, friends! Today I’m back with another quick and easy, but totally fabulous DIY. For the past couple weeks, my dining room table has become a bit of a catchall. (I think this happens to the best of us at times.) The table was definitely in need of a little refresh. And with so much color blooming outside, I was craving some serious color inside.

As you may know, this year I’ve teamed up with Glade® to share ideas for creating the #bestfeelings in the world. For me, a fun DIY, bursting with color and a hint of fresh fragrance, quickly creates some pretty awesome feelings. Having my table dressed and ready for when company pops in also makes me feel good.

Last week I stumbled across these new green mason jars. Now I know mason jars are a little overplayed these days, but I could not resist having some fun with these green ones. There were just too perfect.

I decided to jazz them up a bit with gold spray paint and then fill them with flowers and scatter them around my table. I am loving the look since it’s no secret that gold and I are BFFs. However, I do want you to know that I tryied to mix it up for all of you. I originally wanted to do the jars in copper, but after finding no copper spray paint at multiple stores, I opted for gold. Maybe I’ll have better luck next time.

Gold-Dipped Mason Jars

Ok, for this little project, you will need: mason jars, blue painters tape, gold (or any color you’d like) spray paint, and some flowers.

Begin by taping off the mason jars. I wanted to give my jars a paint-dipped look so I went with mostly sharp diagonal lines. Be sure to press on your tape firmly to prevent drips.

Cover all the areas of the jar that you do not want painted.

Then, give them a quick coat of spray paint. I recommend three very light coats, instead of one heavy coat.

After the paint is dry, simply remove the tape.

It is likely that some paint will have leaked under the tape. Just used a sharp object to scrap it off. It should come off easily.

Finally, add water and tuck in flowers. Your Gold-Dipped Mason Jars are complete!

To help pull everything together and add a glow, I scattered around a few of the new Glade® Let Loose™ candles from their Limited Edition Spring Collection. The color was a perfect match for the flowers I chose and also helped tie in my new table runner, while the fresh hints of passion fruit and mandarin helped bring a hint of springtime indoors.

A round basket added texture and big blue vases provided even more sparkle and another burst of bright color. Pretty snazzy, right?

All in all, I’m loving the new look and this little DIY. Hopefully, it will encourage me to keep my table clutter free.
