How to Make Painted Peeps Mason Jars for Easter: Mason Jar Craft Idea for Easter.
I have to admit a super secret truth here: I’ve been getting painted mason jar ideas from nail art. Like these painted and distressed peeps mason jars for Easter. I first spotted this design on a nail … 😉
When you think about it, it makes sense. Nail beds are very similar in shape to the front of a mason jar. They’re just a smaller scale canvas.
So when I Google image searched ‘Easter nail art’ and these cutest little chicks in eggs popped up, I couldn’t resist. They looked just like Peeps to me. So I decided to add pink and a blue painted peeps mason jars too.
How To Make Peeps Mason Jars for Easter
Step 1: Start with a mason jar painted white. I gave mine two coats of white primer. Let dry between coats and dry overnight before proceeding to next step.
Step 2: Start with the most amazing Washi tape ever: zig zag Washi. I found mine at the craft store.
Step 3: Give it a thick coat of yellow paint. I went with one coat.
Step 4: Remove tape when dry.
Step 5: Touch up white paint.
Step 6: To create beak, start with a dot of orange.
Step 7: Use a toothpick to pull orange paint into a triangle shape.
Step 8: Use black paint and a fine tipped brush to make eyes.
Step 9: Once dry, give the jar a light distressing along the raised “MASON” letters …
… and along the top threads …
… and sides.
Step 10: Seal with a clear coat spray.
And you’re done …
