6/30 | DIY Picture Frame Mason Jar


So as you all probably know already- there are countless uses for mason jars. Today I am going to be showing you a super fun use, a DIY Picture Frame Mason Jar that is also a vase. I love how versatile mason jars are and how the project can display a picture and flowers at the same time! You can customize it any way you’d like with any colors, any flower type, and any jar size!

You will need: mason jar | Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Innocence | decorative adhesive label | paint brush | Scotch tape 

Stick the adhesive label in the center of the mason jar. You may actually want to position it slightly lower so the flowers don’t block the picture.

Paint the entire mason jar including the rim with Chalky Finish paint. Be careful when painting around the label. You don’t want any paint to get under the label. Try stroking outward from the label itself.


While the paint is still wet, remove the label. It is best to remove it when it is still wet so that the label comes off cleanly and doesn’t rip off any extra paint.


Print a picture the size of the cutout. Tape the picture inside of the jar. The painted outline will act as a picture frame! I love this picture of Tanner and I from prom- it goes great with the color of the flowers too! 

I placed a few fake flowers in the jar and am absolutely in love with how it turned out! The chalky finish paint went on the glass so well- unbelievably great coverage. This would make a great little DIY gift for someone. It is such a sweet keepsake. I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial- let me know in the comments if you did!

  1. I purchased all stuff from Michaels. I couldn’t find the decorative adhesive label as shown in the pic so I bought a different kind.

  2. What do you mean when you said “tape the picture from the inside”? Also, would you recommend putting real flowers in this? I found a tip for mason jars that have wore to separate the flowers but thinking the water going in and out might mess up the paint?? Let me know!

    1. Hey Catherine! You will want to tape you picture inside of the jar so that it is centered in the clear part of the jar that has no paint on it. I would not recommend using it for real flowers because the picture is in the inside of the jar.

      1. Thank you! I wasnt sure if it was possible as i dont want the chalky paint to come off the jar. But thank you for the clarification!

  3. Does the paint scrape off or flake off? Should it be covered with a type of finisher like decoupage?
