Feature: Reuse Jars With A Special Painting Technique

Spread the love

So many food items come in glass jars of varying shapes and sizes.  These make great containers for recycling into a new and decorative home accent.

I have covered jars in paper, with decoupage, and covered them with birch bark.  I have also painted them on the outside for a nice matte finish.

However, I had never tried the painting technique that The Latest Find used for creating a nice glossy and polished finish on her recycled jars.

She squirted paint into the jar and swirled it around making a nice coating to the inside.  This gave a nice glossy look from the outside and you never have to touch the painted surface!  I love this idea!

Here is a picture:

The pastel colors used here are perfect for the Spring.  See how she accomplished this whole look by checking out her tutorial.  The Latest Find also has a whole series on re-using glass jars that you will want to check out.

Re-using glass jars is a great way to inexpensively add some decorative accents to your home, especially when they turn out as beautiful as these jars did.

Happy Crafting!

I'm addicted to crafting and decorating my downtown city loft and up north rustic cabin.
