I wanted to jazz up the mantle a little with something patriotic for Memorial Day. If I can, I prefer to use what I already have rather than buy more things. I was on Instagram and saw jars that were painted through Michael's. I'm loaded with jars and I have a lot of acrylic paint so I made a mental note to do this sweet little project. It took about an hour and half to get the three jars painted. Add some flowers and it is a nice decoration that brightens up that area.
I will seal the jars before I put them away because the paint will scrape off easily since I used acrylics. Hopefully if I pack them away carefully I will get many more uses out of them. Then again, distressed is still a popular look.
