    I too love spray paint and have so many extras that I wasn’t sure what to do with them. I too am going to do the mason jars. That is so clever and I can’t believe that I have never seen it before. TOO CUTE!! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

    I love these mason jars! Love the color it really makes the flowers pop. Did you have to prepare the jar before spraying to get the paint to stick? Is this a high gloss spray? what brand is the best one to use.?

    can you email me back at the email address I provided ?

    Thanks ! Have a creative day!

      Hi Sue! I actually didn’t do this project – the link is below the image (here it is: I would visit the post – there are instructions there and it shows the spray paint she used. Thanks for visiting!
