1) Clean off the jars and make sure they are dry.
2) With the sponge brush, paint the jar. (Repeat this for about 3 coats. Wait 20-30 min in between coats.)
3) Using sandpaper or a sanding block, distress the words and areas that would seem to get naturally scuffed.
4) Enjoy ya’ll it really was that easy !! I know the directions seem small and they are but it’s easy so you can do it !! Just try a few tips to look at down below.

I did this whole set in less than 2 hours. At the end i did spry with a clear coat just to seal them you don’t have to but i wanted to protect the glitter.
Now a few tips & tricks that helped me along the way:
– A lot of people say paint the inside of the jars I did NOT do this I did’y find that it was needed.
– I simply put my hand in the jar it wouldn’t go all the way in i just put it enough to paint the whole thing and move it around a bit as needed.
– When adding glitter to the rim if that’s the style you want don’t spray the glitter on it gets all over. I sprayed my sponge brush with the glue then applied where needed. and then sprinkled the glitter.
– The longer they dry between each coat the better.
– When applying the 2nd coat you will notice a but of paint “peeling” don’t stress it’s okay cause on coat 3 it covers it up & then when you distress with the sand paper it looks like it’s supposed to be that way.
– I used three different paints two were satin finish and one was matte the matte one honestly looks and works better.
– All my pictures will show my setup and what all i used as well.
– All you need is a tiny piece of sandpaper… go over the words and a few areas around the jar VERY lightly.
– Anytime i post a DIY craft you can ALWAYS ask me questions if i’m not clear on something 🙂
– If ya’ll like these as much as I do you can enter the giveaway at the bottom to win a set.
