Spring is in the air here! For a little while at least.

We’ve had lots of rain and now the sun is shining and it’s almost 60 degrees! This is my kind of weather!

This weather also gets me in the mood for Spring. I love all the beauty the Spring season brings with it. It’s like taking a breath of fresh air.

Since Spring is on my mind right now, I decided to go ahead and start making some Spring DIY’s.

My inspiration for today’s DIY farmhouse mason jar vase actually came from one of my favorite places on earth – Kirkland’s. They have these cute floral mason jar vases right now for $12.99. That’s not exactly expensive, but I didn’t want to pay that price for something I knew I could make for way less.

Actually, my farmhouse mason jar vase was free because I already had everything on hand.

What you need:

Materials Needed

What you do:

The first thing you want to do is make sure your mason jar is clean. My mason jar came from Goodwill so I washed it really well before painting.

My preferred method of painting glass is spray paint, but that wasn’t happening since it was raining when I made this. Since I couldn’t use spray paint, the only other paint I had on hand was craft paint.

When painting with craft paint on glass, it’s best to scuff the glass up a little bit with sandpaper. Just go over the mason jar lightly with the sandpaper. This helps the paint stick to the glass a little better.

Since I used craft paint to paint the mason jar, I did two coats. Here’s what it looked like after one coat.

After the paint dries on the mason jar, add some jute twine around the top. I wrapped the twine around the top of the jar twice and then tied it into a bow at the front.

step 2 - tie the twine

Next, just add the flowers to the farmhouse mason jar vase and you’re done!

The flowers I used were cattails from Dollar Tree. I didn’t have any lavender, but I thought these looked pretty close and I didn’t really want to make a trip for 2 bunches of lavender flowers.

It’s not exact, but I think it looks very similar to the vase from Kirkland’s.

I’m happy with the way it turned out and the flowers can be changed for any season or holiday.

    Looks nice, I like it and need to try this, have lots of jars! Thanks so much for linking up with me at my #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 9 where I leave a comment and share all entries on social media if share option is available, open February 1 to 26.

  3. It looks very close to the original! You did a great job as always, Michelle! I love lavender so much and use a lavender spray in my bedroom at night before turning out the light. (Not sure if it makes me sleep better, but I do love the scent!)

    1. Thank you so much! I love the scent of lavender, too. I’m always stocking up on lavender essential oil. πŸ˜€ It’s so calming. I bet your bedroom smells so good at night! I use it in every room. πŸ™‚

      1. It does, and I find it lasts really well too. Like it doesn’t wear off in 5 minutes or even 20! When I wake up in the morning I still can smell it a bit!

  4. Adorable! And I’ll have to try lightly sanding my mason jars before painting them with craft paint; I could never figure out how to make that go on nicely, so I appreciate that tip in particular. πŸ™‚

  5. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best right? What a great saving and your vase looks so pretty πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing with us at Handmade Monday, we have a group pinterest board which I have invited you too, if you’d like to pin your ideas there you’d be very welcome πŸ™‚

  6. I absolutely love your creation Michelle! What a perfect way to bring in these Spring-like temperatures! Yet again, you amaze me with your talent! ?
