DIY Candy Corn Mason Jars

Can you believe October is here? I know I can’t. I had a minor freak out when I realized I had done nothing to prepare for Halloween….no costumes purchased, no decorations out, nada. So after a quick trip to the online costume shop I decided to whip up some super cute DIY Candy Corn Mason Jars.

I started out with some regular pint mason jars.

Then I used some white chalk paint to paint the entire jars. It took a couple coats for good coverage.

I searched my local craft stores for a good yellow and orange chalk paint but I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I just grabbed some regular ole craft paint. I used frog tape to tape off my lines, I’m horrible at free handing straight lines.

After I had all the paint on there and dried, I distressed the mason jars. I used a sanding block and focused on the raised spots on the jars. I also added a clear coat to protect the paint.

  1. For the base coat, could I use the “regular old craft paint” as well?
