I’m feeling inspired by Spring. Not that the flowers are blooming in Chicago. Yet …
though I did spot a few buds poking their way out of the ground yesterday. Which gave me hope.
But until the daisies fully bloom, I thought I’d make my very own bouquet. On mason jars, of course!
PAINTED DAISY MASON JARS TUTORIAL
I stared by giving my jars three coats of teal acrylic paint in matte finish. I lightened my color with one part white paint to two parts teal.
After they dried overnight, I distressed them with 80 grit sandpaper.
To paint the daisy petals, I used a gloss enamel craft paint and a small brush. For each petal, I started my brush on the outside edge and pulled back to the center.
Each daisy has six petals.
For the centers, I used a high gloss paint and a small pointed brush.
I dipped the brush in the paint and then dotted n the centers of the petals.
Once dry, I gave them all a coat of clear spray finish in matte.You can find my “go to” clear finish that I purchase at the craft store by clicking here …
