Spray Paint Mason Jars – Metallic Spray Painted Mason Jars.
Spray Paint + Mason Jars = WOW!
This look is so easy to create. All you need is some metallic silver spray paint. I used some I found at Lowes. It’s Valspar Brilliant Metal Silver spray paint.
And suddenly your basic Ball Canning mason jars are elegant vases. And centerpieces. Perfect for weddings. Or bridal showers. Or any special event …
I first shared these on my other blog. It All Started with Paint.

Sensational in SILVER!!!! I love the Valspar Paint or is it that cool lizard and his girlfriend that change colors on the commercial??? I love watching them change with all the pretty colors…but all joking aside…the paint is awesome and it sticks to glass great. These silver beauties are a testament to that! Awesome as usual my friend! Have a great weekend MJ! hugs…

Thank you so much for the tutorials. I bought the book Mason Jar Ideas for Kids at AC Moore awhile back. I am obsessed with Jar crafts! Yours are beautiful.
Thank you so much and thanks for buying my book!!! 🙂
If I am having an event in November how far in advance can I do this project and still have a shine? Also what flower would you recommend for silver jars in November? Thanks!
I’m sorry for not responding sooner! I thought that I had. Okay, I find that the silver stays shiny longest and the gold tends to age a bit? Not sure if that’s the right term. But I would do the project like 3-4 weeks before or so to give them time to dry. Give them at least a full week to dry in regular room temperature before handling too much or even wrapping (when I wrapped them too soon for Etsy shop orders the bubble wrap actually pocked the finish).
For flowers, the silver look great with almost any color! Reds and oranges would look lovely in November if you want a fall/holiday feel.
Hope this helps and my apologies for not responding sooner!!!
how do you seal the,m so that if filled with water as a vase the condensation doesn’t make paint peel of pucker??
I use a clear coat sealer on jars painted with acrylic and chalk paint. I don’t seal the metallic since it changes the color of the metallic (and dulls them too). The spray paint it durable and won’t peel or pucker. I worry more about scratching.
