Painted Mason Jar Lids


After searching high and low, I finally found two sources of lids to fit regular mouth canning jars. They are from Classico spaghetti sauces and organic coconut oil jars. The wide mouth jar lids come in an eight pack and are available most places that sell canning jars. For leftovers in the fridge or snacks for the counter, you can't beat a draw-full of pretty lids that fit.

After roughing up the surface of each lid with sand paper, I applied a coat of primer, then two coats of color. After decorating with words or designs, I covered the tops with acrylic gloss. This is the same procedure I used for the terracotta pots. I will hand wash the lids for long use.

For fun, I tried painting some rocks for markers in the garden or potted plants. (shown below)
