{DIY: Balloon-Dipped Mason Jars}

September 25, 2013

I love mason jars...Always have, always will.  I love drinking out of them, storing things in them, decorating them, etc. {You can check out how my parents and I used them at my sister's nautical-inspired baby shower here.}

Since I love them so much, I have accumulated crates of them, and they are begging for some attention.  I've been toying with the idea of painting them, but I couldn't quite figure out which technique I wanted to use.  And then I came across this.  Amazing discovery...So simple and super cute.
I immediately pulled out my mason jars and balloons and tested it out...Here is the first one I threw together in less than one minute.  It looks painted, right? :)
Painted look without the mess AND a stripy straw to accompany them?  Yes please!!

- mason jars
- balloons
- scissors1. Fold your balloon in half lengthwise, and snip about a quarter inch off the top.
2. Cut off the skinny “stem” of the balloons.
3. Pull over the bottom of your jar and up the sides.
4. That’s all!
I love how mine turned out, and I'll definitely be doing this at my girl's first birthday party.  Aren't they so cute?!
I hope you enjoy this simple DIY tip, and have a great day!
