When I was young and single and carefree, St. Patrick’s Day was a favorite holiday to celebrate. It comes with no couples pressure like it’s predecessor, Valentine’s Day. There is no gift giving stress. And the food and drink are easy …
boil some meat and cabbage in a pot. Serve with a side of ice cold beer.
But now that I’m older and more sophisticated, my St. Patrick’s Day celebrating no longer involves a parade followed by a day-long-bar hop. So I’m celebrating this year with some chic gold jars painted with subtle shamrocks.
These are not too complicated to make. You just need a side of patience …
1. Spray Paint Jars Gold
I used Rust-Oleum’s Metallic gold spray paint. I love the color and you can easily cover with one thick coat.
2. Use a thin tipped brushed to create a dot of paint.
Be generous. You need that do to be thick.
3. Create a second dot of paint.
Be sure to overlap dot #1.
4. Create a third dot of paint.
This forms your clover leaves.
5. Use a toothpick to create a stem.
Pull through those thick dots of paint.
And you’re done!
Now, it you’re not up for making these yourself, I am selling made-to-order sets at my Etsy shop. I have two variations:
Two pints & one quart set found here …
Three pints set found here …
Happy mason jar crafting!
