Jars are perfect for all sorts of crafty things. From painting the lids and using them to store your crafty items or simply paint them to make a collection of sweet Homey Vases.
Sometimes there may be a sticky residue left behind and the best way to remove that is by soaking the jars in really really hot water and dishwashing liquid until the water becomes lukewarm and then using a non-scratching scourer just work your way around the jar and the stickiness will remove nice and easy.
I usually let the jars dry upside down overnight or if I want to speed up the process I let them dry in the sun or dry them in the oven at a LOW temperature on a baking tray. Be careful when removing from the oven as they may be a tad hot!
Leave the bottom of the jars until last to paint and then flip over and paint so you’re able to stand the bottles up while painting.
Step 5 – Once dry using your sanding block, sand back the bottles and numbers in certain area’s to give the bottles that nice distressed look.
Too finish Up Step 6 – Apply wax to the entire bottle to seal in all of your hard work and embellish the neck of the jars with a cute jute bow.
