Pinterest Project No. 3: Painted Mason Jars

pinterest-projects-no3

I love that I had Cate’s first birthday as an excuse to do my next Pinterest Project for 2013.

The color scheme I chose for her party was based on, surprise surprise, a lovely paper collection that featured coral pink, muted/light browns, and whites/creams. Love it!  I DID want to make a turquoise jar, but didn’t, though I will probably make another set some other time… too easy, cheap, and kind of addicting when you think of all the possible color combinations!

I followed Simply Ciani’s tutorial, minus sanding–ran out of time! I still love the look of them, though!

Here’s a quick shot of the party table I took while setting things up… more party pictures later! But the jars add a pop of color without being the centerpiece… just what I wanted. : )
