Fall Vases Made From Mason Jars

2 Materials
1 Hour

Where are my fall color fans?? These mason jars turned rustic vases are done in fall shades of green, red and yellow.

Dixie Belle Paint has released 5 limited new fall colors; juniper, merlot and pumpkin spice shown above as well as latte and cashmere

This great sized mason jars come filled with spaghetti sauce and make a perfect vase. I run thru the dishwasher once emptied.

Many chalk paints claim you can just paint over any surface but to have better adherence I brushed on a coat of  Dixie Belle Slick Stick and let dry well. I did the bottom and inside the rim as well.

 I chose 3 ; juniper, merlot and pumpkin spice. I did 2 jars of each color bottom and inside rim painted as well. And two coats of each color were brushed on letting dry between coats.

To seal the colors and add more durability  Dixie Belle flat clear coat was brushed on with a  Dixie Belle premium chip brush. Again 2 coats were applied.

Now to age and give a rustic appearance using  Dixie Belle's best dang wax in brown. The right vase is done and left is not.

Then  Dixie Belle Gilding Wax in copper and bronze. A wee bit of the gold was added too. They layer beautifully and bring out the designs so well. The metallic colors add a worn weathered look to the vases.
