DIY: How to Tint Mason Jars

by Jillian Leslie on

I just discovered that you can tint mason jars and make them look like this, and all it takes is a little Modge Podge and food coloring. I found this easy tutorial put together by Heidi of My Beautiful Mess.

What I like about this tutorial is that Heidi paints the jars on the outside instead of the inside like most tutorials I've seen. This way, if you want to use them as floating candle votives or as flower vases you can. Personally, I think I'm going to use them to store odds and ends.

Just remember, you can't have people drink out of them or they will get a mouthful of Modge Podge. :)

The process is simple and looks something like this...

And here's the beautiful end result. Just lovely!

    I made these today! I couldn't believe how easy it was! Followed all the instructions on the site attached and viola! Done in about an hour. The recipe seemed small to me, but it painted four jars. Some big and some small in the same batch. I love them. Going to use them in the centerpeice for my duaghters western party. Thanks for the awesome idea!
