Last updated on June 13th, 2019

Jars are probably one of the handiest and easy to acquire item, and I love them. They have so many uses, and are so easy to find. I tend to find myself collecting them for projects, and end up with way more than I use.

One of my favorite things, by far, to do with jars of any variety is to use them as decoration. This collection consists of some amazing DIY jar decorations. I think the best part about them is that you can use any variety of jar to do them, like Mason jars, Kerr jars, etc.

Lovely Painted Mason Jars

This is such an easy and beautiful DIY project that you could use for just about anything. All you need to do is paint the inside of the jar with a few coats of paint in a color of your choice, and you’re done. You could even add ribbon, strips of burlap, or twine around the tops of the jar for a little bit of a pop. You could fill them with flowers (faux or real), or use them to hold candles, small plants, writing utensils, paint brushes, or anything else you can think of. They are so pretty and so versatile.

Spray Painted Kerr Jars

These spray painted Kerr jars are so bright and cheerful, they would bring a bit of brightness to any room. This super quick and super easy DIY project is sure to bring a nice pop of color anywhere you wish to place them. And since they are painted on the outside, you can put fresh flowers in them for a bit of freshness and a bit of joy fresh flowers bring. They are super versatile, being that you can use any color of spray paint, and just a few light coats will bring these amazing jars some amazing color.

Hanging Mason Jars

These ones in particular are designed for weddings, but with the easy to follow steps, you could create them for just about anything. You could even swap out the flowers for some candles and have these line your patio or garden for some pretty glow lighting.

      That looks like pipe fittings from the hardware store. They are called gator clamps or quick clamps or something like that. Check out your local hardware store in the pipe section!

    It appears to be the metal ring I’ve seen used to tighten hoses under the hood of your car. Probably any auto parts dealer…maybe even Walmart.
