I committed recently to a healthier lifestyle. My norm used to be weekly runs to Taco Time, frequent binge watching of Netflix shows, the occasional walk on my lunch break to get out of the office, but not much else in the way of exercise. After realizing that while this lifestyle was easy, it was not making me feel very good about myself, something clicked in my brain and I became very determined to change. Enter the fun new healthy recipes, weird apartment-sized exercise equipment, and desperate attempt to make this drastic change a bit more convenient for myself. Although these little planters are just a small step in the right direction, they’re fun and they inspire me to make good choices every time I see them.
I have to admit, I’ve never actually tried glass painting before, and I knew I would need to do some research before trying it out for myself. There are so many different effects you can achieve using glass paints and vases. You can find inexpensive glass at the dollar store or even in the top shelf of your kitchen cabinets! My husband and I have a constant battle over the mason jars in our house – he uses them for canning and I use them for decorating. Once he’s used them once or twice, I wash them out and hide them in hard to reach cabinets. Once you’ve gathered your extra glass containers and pretty paints check out some of these tutorials for design ideas and tips.When your projects are complete feel free to post pictures of your new glass decor in the comment section!
These Modern Mason Jars are a great way to re-use or reclaim the mason jars in your own kitchen! Once you’re done with this project those old mason jars won’t be hiding any longer. These would be great for holding crafts supplies, or decorative knick knacks on a modern mantle place.
