I purchased these mason jars. I usually would have just chosen some from my ever expanding mason jar collection. But the ones I normally pick up at a secondhand store have writing on all sides. I needed one side of the mason jar text free. These have one side with nothing on it.
Here is how the leaves looked tapes on the mason jar. Be sure when putting the leaves on that thy go on the side of the jar that has no writing or details on it. The idea is that the leaf shape will be a cut out that has no paint on it. So a blank surface is best.
As you can see, the edges of the leaves are not perfectly resting along the mason jar. I had assumed that with the force of the spray paint it would push the leaf to become stuck to the mason jar. Closing off any gaps. Like I said, not the best scientist. I was planning to use the power washer of spray paints, obviously…. Moving on….
Notice the non stuck leaf edges? Yeah, I knew this was not going to work perfectly. It is ok though. I peeled it off and figured I would go with it. I am craft-er, DIY-er, and far from a perfectionist. I am a legit Type A personality that is perfectly ok shrugging my shoulders and saying “eh, good enough” sometimes.
This above pictures is giving you a little taste of the rest of my fall home. There is another DIY project peeking out in this shot. I went big with DIY this season and put my own stamp on nearly everything I put out this year. I had a lot of fun with it. That is the end goal of decorating your home, have fun with it. There is no right or wrong and none of it is that serious. I think you all know I do not take much too seriously. I was just told that I have resting smile face as opposed to resting b**ch face, apparently I am always smiling; even while talking. I guess I simply look at the jar as half full, the home decor as endless possibilities. And these mason jars with leaves blobs as a win. I got to create, and decorate. Booyah!
Have you ever created something and it did not turn out the way you had envisioned it? What are your main fall colors you put up in your home?
