A Mason of One’s Own

August 30, 2011  |  Inspiration

One thing that we get a lot of envy of over in the Land Beyond Beyond, are the beautiful little mason jars.  These beauties are ubiquitous when it comes to the expectations that we have of weddings Americana style.  But, well the closest that we come to here are the Robinson’s marmalade jars – which really don’t do it for us – we love the look and feel of the lovely Mason’s.  They have this chunky solid feel that we just love.

So, of course you could colour us happy when we happened upon the Pure and Noble blog (check it out there are a whole load of lovely finds up in there).  And we love that Brooke has repurposed some Mason Jars with spray paint – it tis rather epic.  We encourage you to head on over and see the make on the Pure and Noble blog.  Hot glue guns at the ready!

About the author

I'm the big kahuna with the whole shebang. Amma = Idiot + Savant. Also known as Ams, Amsy, and less frequently Adjubi . Nice to make your acquaintance. I write in the first, second, third and sometimes disembodied person (Bet it will confuse the life out of you).



  1. I’m constantly amazed and annoyed how creative people are!!!!! love these i need i want.

  2. I am anticipating the finger burns from my hot glue gun already! 🙂

  3. they look fantastic spray-painted…i bet they would be pretty rad with spray-painted white & black sticks with a red bloom in the middle, no?

  4. Lizzie, you creative genius! I am liking the way that you are thinking lovely – I think that this would work very well! Very well indeed! *evil needing to make something laugh*

  5. Wow. Thank you so much for your kind words and for including my little craft on your blog! xo

  6. Awesome! Great Idea!

  7. Brooke – you are more than welcome it is a cool idea, and I can’t wait to play around with it myself 🙂

  8. Love love this idea!! Did you use anything special with the spray paint to avoid it peeling or scratching off?? This is going to make great stocking stuffers!!!

  9. I really love this idea, think I’m going to get busy tomorrow. Would spray varnish protect the spray paint?

  10. Yvonne – yes, I did seal it with a clear coat of spray paint. They have different finishes in the clear paint as well…I used matte. hope that helps.

    • Thanks Brooke for the tips – I saw this last night before I collapsed into bed 🙂 – good to know I will be making this soon, and I will let you know how I get on!

  11. I was thinking maybe a base coat inside of white. Put a glue pattern outside or maybe different words (love, family, laugh, etc). Spray paint outside black. Then peel of hot glue, some not all. Then you have black & white. The pattern or word you peel off will be white. I wonder if this will work? My daughters bedroom colors are black & white.

  12. I love this idea! Going to use for my wine-bottle centerpieces at my wedding in September! Thanks!
