You will need:

  • Mason Jars
  • Acrylic Paint white, red and pink (Also, you can change up the color patterns to what you want!
  • Tooth pics
  • Paint brushes (large and skinny)



First, I began by cleaning the mason jars so there wasn’t anything on the jar so I could get a smooth finish once the jar was painted and dried. Next, once they were clean and dry, I painted the jars with white acrylic paint. I did three coats,wait five minutes between each coat. Once the white paint was dry, I  used the pink to paint stripes across the mason jar in a vertical direction. After these were dry, I then took a toothpick and dipped it in red acrylic paint and began painting little red hearts all over the mason jar, before letting it dry. There you have it, a cute valentines day decoration for your house or a gift for that special someone!
