Guilded Gold Mason Jar Vases

DIY Guilded Mason Jar Vases

I’ve been playing with mason jars a lot lately. Gotta get in on that trend, am I right? When I made my jack-o-lantern jars with the Ball Transform Mason Paint, I also played with a DecoArt gold glass paint marker and some Ball Transform Mason Frog Lids to make these simple and chic vases! I’ve seen a lot of mason jar vases on Pinterest, primarily used as wedding centerpieces, and I love their country charm.

Bear in mind that this was literally my first attempt at arranging flowers, ever. But when boyfriend brought me a bouquet of pink roses after a last-semester-of-college breakdown, I dismantled it for these cute jars, ha!


Stuff You’ll Need: Gold Glass Paint Marker, Mason Jars, Ball Transform Mason Frog Lids

This project could not be easier.

  1. Wash and dry glass jars.
  2. Draw on your design with the paint pen.
  3. Follow the instructions on your glass paint. You will likely need to bake the glass, unless you use the Ball Transform Mason Paint Markers. Just be sure to put the glass in a COLD oven and let it heat along with the oven, or it will break.
  4. Remove the solid metal circle from the jar lid ring and replace it with the frog lid.
  5. Add flowers, and enjoy!

I made four different designs on my jars: vertical stripes, dots at the base, criss-crossy random lines at the base, and gold on the raised jar design. Truth be told, I like them all. Though the simplicity of the one with the raised portions painted gold does appeal to me… Like it came that way or something!


Which is your favorite? 🙂
