  • paint color of your choosing
  • Paint brush
  • Vinyl shape or sticker and picture
  • Painter’s tape

  2. Cut a picture to size and attach it to the mason jar with painter’s tape.
  3. Distress the lettering on the mason jar. This is an optional step but if you like the lettering to show, take a sharp object such as a metal filer and scrape until satisfied.
  4. Seal the outside of jar with clear spray paint. To make sure you jar stays intact, you will need to perform this step.
  5. Place cup inside jar to hold flowers. DO NOT fill inside of vase with water if you don’t want to ruin your photograph. Place a paper cup inside the jar, fill the cup with water, and place your flowers in the cup.
