• DIY: Tinted Mason Jars in Rainbow

    I’ve been experimenting with tinting mason jars to create a look like those old vintage ones that are difficult to find anymore in second hand stores.  I think I’ve finally honed in on the perfect method. Would you like to see how it’s done? Check out the DIY here.

    Fill them with flowers, or illuminate an outdoor party filling them with battery operated tea lights or a strand of twinkle lights. I promise it’s easier than you think.

      These are gorgeous! They would make wonderful vases and I'll bet you could make them with any ol' clear thrift store glassware.

      Love this idea. I use Mason jars for everything. I fill them with nuts, candy, and seeds. The kids go for the collection to see what I have today.
