DIY Ombre Mason Jars Tutorial


Last week I made a pretty cool two-tone mason jar in fall colors. It's simple and easy to do so I thought I would share. Enjoy!

Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 colors of acrylic paint
  • newspaper
  • clear glass vase or mason jar
First, I made sure to wash my jar with soap and warm water and then let it dry thoroughly so there would be no dirt or residue.

Then I squirted the color I wanted for the lower half of the jar into the bottom first. In this case, I used the yellow first.

After, I added the orange color into the middle of the bottom of the jar, and used less than I did of the yellow. This is how the bottom of your jar should look:
sorry I forgot to take a pic of my actual jar
 Then just slowly start swirling the paint around in your jar until it is almost to the top.
At this point, put your jar top-down on the newspaper to allow the rest of the paint to drip down.

After an hour of so, get a wet cloth or paper towel and wipe down the paint around the lip of the container to it does not look messy.

Place back on a clean section of newpaper and leave it there overnight.

This is what you will see in the morning:

It goes perfectly with my fall entrance table :)
