Today I am sharing how to make these fun chalk and glitter paint mason jar lanterns. They are super simple to make, and will compliment your Valentine’s Day decor perfectly. Let’s get started!
Deco Art Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting
Deco Art Crystal Glitter Glass Pain in Red
One inch paintbrush or foam brush
Heart Stickers or Cut out hearts from Foil tape with paper punch or Sizzix Heart Die
Lint free towel
Clean mason jars with alcohol and lint free cloth, then paint with red glitter glass paint by DecoArt. Let dry completely then place heart stickers where you want your hearts to be. I used foil tape and my sizzix heart die because The foil sticks well and the paint won’t seep under in the next step.
Use a soft brush to paint on chalky finish paint. I liked the look of the red showing through a little, so I just did one coat, but you can let dry for 30 min and add another coat of you want a whiter look. When you have painted on your final coat, use tweezers to carefully remove heart stickers after about 10 minutes. You don’t want to let your project dry completely with the stencils still adhered. If you do, you run the risk of peeling away adjacent paint when you remove them.
Apply adhesive rhinestones to jar lid as shown in pics, insert candle and that is the end!
