This isn't exactly a craft fail. More like a craft meh (insert shoulder shrug here).
I've been seeing painted mason jars all over Pinterest and on numerous blogs. And I thought they sort of looked cute.
So off I go and grab my paintbrush and some green craft paint and paint away.
OK, so it's a spaghetti sauce jar instead of a mason jar. But a jar is a jar is a jar, right? Right?
Maybe not. It just looks like a painted spaghetti sauce jar.
Live and learn. If I'm going to jump on a crafting bandwagon, jump on with both feet planted firmly in the bandwagon and avoid the tuba.
Or something about not falling off the wagon maybe?
Or not getting your toes run over by the wagon?
Or not letting the wagon roll over and trap Adam under it (random Little House On The Prairie reference)?
OK, let's just make it simple. Just use a mason jar.
Have you painted any mason jars lately? Did they come out as well as could be expected?
I like it...spaghetti jar and all! I like it so much that I "pinned" it!
I loved you on Susan's blog and love you even better here!!
I saw a tutorial on a blog where they swirled the paint around the inside of the jar. Personally, Mason, Ball and Kerr jars are SO last year! 🙂

You win some and you lose some. I don't think your spaghetti jar looks bad at all.

I think it looks pretty sweet myself. The orange flowers look awesome with the green. I love vintage mason jars and would never touch them, but I'd definitely do this with a spaghetti jar. I'm your newest followers.
I don't know if someone mentioned this before, but I found that spray-paint works really well. Just spray the outside with maybe 2 coats (that's the most I've used but sometimes you may need more coats)
I can't paint with a brush to save my life, so they always came out streaky and uneven when I tried using craft paint. I never used the spray-painted ones for anything that touches food, so I figure its fine. 🙂 hope that helps!!
