DIY Mason Jars - What you will need

 

What you will need:

Mason Jars
Candy
Panties
Acrylic paint
Chalkboard paint
Chalk
Ribbon
Small foam brush
Paintbrushes

 

DIY Mason Jar - Step 1

1. Remove the lid from the mason jar and place it on top of a paper towel or scratch paper. Using the small foam brush, cover it with a layer of chalkboard paint.
