I’ve been spending a lot of time in Florida since the start of 2020 helping my aging parents.
And after spending a lot of time in Florida since the start of 2020, I now fully understand why bloggers who live in southern states are always so quick to embrace spring …
while I’m still busy shoveling my sidewalk.
Oh, who am I kidding. My husband shovels the sidewalk! 😉
But you get the gist. It’s so hard to be all springy when the weather outside is all gloomy and gray and cold and snowy/rainy.
But now that I’ve been hanging out in a warmer(ish) climate – northern Florida can be quite fickle at this time of year but it’s no Chicago! – I find myself hankering for springy crafts. Like this white painted poppy mason jar …
How To Make Painted Poppy Mason Jar
Rust-Oleum Aged Gray Chalked Paint (you could also use an acrylic gray paint)
Rust-Oleum Linen White Chalked Paint (you could also us an acrylic white paint)
Dark Brown Acrylic Paint
Two coats of gray paint. Let dry completely between coats (I typically give it an overnight to dry).
Distress with 80 grit paper.
Use smaller brush and white paint to create poppies.
Just six blobs of paint, connected together.
Use brush to add gray center dot.
Use thin brush to add center dots of brown.
Use same thin brush to add stems.
Finish with coat of matte sealant.
Make some more!
