DIY: PRETTY PASTEL MASON JARS

If you are looking for the something fun (and a little bit messy!) to do with your little ones this weekend, how about this pretty pastel mason jar project?  Painting some mason jars is a fun and simple DIY that can be done in just a few hours, and when they’re done you can use them in so many ways around the home, to pretty up a desk as a pencil pot, storage for all those tiny toys boys seem to collect (and you’re always treading on!), or to dispay cake pops or treats at your next kiddies party!

With your chosen colour, apply two coats of paint.
