Spray painting mason jars

To get the multi-toned look as we did for the Football Field Mason Jar, spray paint top 2/3 of the jar. Immediately while still wet, spray paint the bottom with another color. Let the bottom overlap the edge of the top color. This creates a blended look.

Once Dry, Create the Design for Mason Jars and Box

Mason Jars:
