. I love to repurpose and upcycle old things to bring them new life. Today, I want to share a quick and easy tutorial for painting tin cans and mason jars.

You only need three easy steps and three materials to make these pretty vases: 1) Painter

s tape, 2) Scrap paper or newspaper, and 3) Spray paint. 

First, tape off your jars and cans with Painter

s tape.

Be sure to press and smooth out and bubbles to prevent bleeding.

Next, Tape off the areas you do not wanted painted and cover it with paper.

Spray paint your vases in a well-ventilated area. One coat works perfectly.

Fill your vases with water and fresh flowers.

You can use these vases anytime or for party centerpieces. You can play around with colors to go with any party theme, event, or holiday.

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial! Stop by and say hello. You can find me on
