Farmhouse Vase


Jar Vase - WT - 7


Now that I’ve discovered the wonder that is Trader Joe’s and their gorgeous (not to mention CHEAP!) flowers I tend to buy fresh flowers pretty often. But, I’ve realized that I never have a suitably sized vase. I have a few bud vases and a few that would work for a large bouquet but nothing for a sweet little grocery-store sized bunch. So, today I’m sharing a sweet little “vase” project that is just right!

You’ll start with blue painters tape and a large canning jar (I used a wide mouth, Ball brand jar.)  I also used Country Chic’s All-In-One Elegance paint as well as Country Chic’s White Wax.

To create a more farmhouse, vintage look I used the “Elegance” blue from Country Chic Paint.

I taped out a wide band around the lower portion of the jar, leaving the decorative detail open so I could free-hand that part. Then I let it dry for about 3 hours.

Using a lint-free cloth, I applied a coat of Country Chic’s white wax, going a little heavy around the details to make them really stand out. I used a Q-tip to clean up around the edges where the wax went beyond the painted area.

To be sure the wax had time to dry really well I let it sit for about 3 days before I added flowers. It’s the perfect addition to add a bit of farmhouse flair!
