Pinterest-Inspired Heart Mason Jars

I love the look of the heart Mason jars that have been popping up all over Pinterest.  I, myself, have pinned a few and yesterday I decided to make my own.
First I put my heart stickers on the fronts of the jars.  Then I used a spray chalk paint (the lighter pink) and an acrylic paint (the dark pink) on them.  Once they are dry, you carefully peel off your stickers for instant hearts.
Hands down, the spray chalk paint is my favorite of the two.  It covered better and it was easier to use a spray compared with a paint brush.  Plus, I felt the acrylic paint didn't cover the glass as well as the spray paint.
I sanded down each jar to give for a shabby look.  Super easy and so perfect for Valentine's Day.

Great little project for Valentine's. Love the color! How about star stickers for Christmas or the 4th of July.
The ideas could go on and on.
Thanks for sharing.
