{Craft Fair} Painted Mason Jars and Weathered Wood Boxes


This post contains affiliate links.

I'm stopping in real quick this morning to share two more crafts I created for the upcoming craft fair, painted mason jars and weathered wood boxes.

There are many tutorials around blogland for both projects, so instead of giving full blown instructions I'll mainly be sharing the after pictures :)

PAINTED MASON JARS

Distressed painted mason jars


Here's what I used: 

-Sandpaper

1. Glue the two pieces of your lids together then spray with ORB spray paint.

2. Paint mason jars with chalk paint, sand and seal with polycrylic.

3. Glue on curio knobs.

I love how they turned out and think they would be perfect for storing little craft or office supplies.

WEATHERED WOOD BOXES

These adorable weathered wood boxes are one of my favorites.  I purchased unfinished wood boxes at Michaels then weathered them by first coating each one in dark stain then a good coat of white spray paint.  After they were dry I sanded the heck out of them and added my favorite metal label holders.

I have to say, the hardest part of doing craft fairs is pricing!  You definitely don't get paid for your time and have to consider what you would pay for the item.   With that being said, I'll be selling the mason jars for $6.00 a piece and the distressed wood boxes for $5.00.

  13. Would you mind sharing the approximate size of the crates? And did you get the cute little label holders at Michael's also? I love both of your projects. They are adorable! And at those prices, you definitely don't get paid for your time and elbow grease. LOL. Thank you for the inspiration you've given me by sharing. Blessings!

  14. Katie,

  15. Does the chalk paint have to be white?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Corrina, you can use any color of chalk paint. They are lovely done in every color. She meant white chalk paint is what she used. The process would be the same with any color.
