DIY Mason Jars

I found these really cute mason jars over at Beach House in the City and thought I'd try to make my own.  LOVE these and they are SO easy!  Just a little glue, food coloring, and water and you've got some beautiful vases!! 

All I did was mix up some Elmer's glue, a little water (just to make it spread a little better) and food coloring to match the color I wanted, and then painted in on the outside of the jars.  I did a few coats to make it come out smoother.  {The mixture tends to dry with some bumps if you don't keep smoothing them out as it dries.}  That's how simple it is!!

Here's how mine turned out!












I just LOVE them!!  And I can't wait to make some more!

Hope your day is spectacular!! ;)
