Peeps Mason Jar – Easter Crafts with Mason Jars.
I’m not a peeps fan …
okay, that’s not 100% true.
I think they’re so cute. Colorful. Adorably sugar-coated all lined up in their packaging.
But I’m not a fan of actually eating a peeps.
My teeth hurt just thinking about it!
But (somehow) it’s not Easter without some peeps.
So I decided to embrace the peep … without having to actually eat the peep … by painting some peeps on a mason jar!
How To Make Painted Peeps Mason Jar
White Paint (I used Rust-Oleum Chalked Paint in Linen White)
Matte Sealant (this is my favorite brand)
*includes some affiliate links.
Start with two coats of white paint. Let dry overnight between coats … and before moving on to next step.
I used chalked paint. You can also use acrylic white paint.
Once completely dry (I let dry overnight), distress with 80 grit sandpaper.
Add a dot of pink paint. This will be the peep’s head.
Use a toothpick to pull paint to form the peep’s ears.
Add a second pink dot for the peep’s body.
Add yellow peeps.
Add blue peeps.
Add lavender peeps.
Once peeps are dry, use a toothpick and black enamel paint to make eyes and noses.
Once completely dry (I give it an overnight), spray with matte sealant.
And there you have it. A sugar-and-calorie-free painted peeps mason jar!
