So I am officially creating a series on re-using food jars and turning them into spring decor! So far, I have used a pickle jar (view HERE) and a Prego Pizza sauce jar (view HERE). Today, I'm doing a Ragu spaghetti sauce jar. Each kind of jar definitely gives a different look, depending on the shape of the jar.
So after I got my spaghetti sauce cooking for lunch, I got started fixing up my jars! (Two regular sized jars of Ragu flavored with meat, add cooked ground beef, let simmer on low for 3 hours, comes out really good!!) I rinsed the jars out good with dish soap and hot water. Then let them completely dry.
After that comes the fun part of getting the labels off the jars. Most of it peels right off, except the edge where it's glued on (as seen in the above pic). So that's my jar and the paint I used (pic above). The paint brand is craft smart, the color is Light Pink... 59 cents at Michael's!! For one jar, it uses just about 1 oz of paint, maybe slightly more.
Just squirt in some paint, and start turning and rolling the jar, to cover all of the glass inside. Tapping the edge of the jar helps the paint to move also.To avoid using more paint than needed, don't squirt in too much at once. Cover what you can with what you've put in there, then add more.
I got ahead of myself this time and added the paint before getting my hubby to help me get the rest of the label off...
There's a view of the inside, and rolling the paint around in there!
After all of your glass is covered inside, all the way to the top, turn it upside down on a paper cup that it fits into, to let your excess paint drip out. The top edge of the jar will need a little cleaning up afterwards
Add some twine, and you're finished!
Now here's my comparison!
And here it is on display! Perfect for spring decorating, easy and super-inexpensive!
Once the inside is completely dry, I can add my flowers!If you do add flowers, just be careful when putting the flowers into the jar, the stems can scratch the paint. I'm trying to figure out some kind of top coat I could add into the inside of the jar that's clear. Any ideas??
Stay tuned for another food jar re-do (hint...it's the white jar in the pics above)!!
