Beautiful DIY Tinted Mason Jars For Summer

by Alli

With summer right around the corner, I thought I’d show you this neat tutorial for some gorgeous, DIY tinted mason jars. These are perfect to use as flower vases, organizers or as centerpieces for a rustic chic wedding. They’ll add some bright pops of color and give any space a warm, vintage feel.

What’s great about these is that they’re so easy to customize. Use pastels, bright or even warmer tones to match to your home’s decor.

You can also mix in a few colors to give them a marbled or rainbow effect. Since they’re super easy to make, it’s also a fun, family-friendly project so enlist the help of your little ones.  

If you’re DIYing centerpieces for a wedding, grab your attendants and have a girls’ crafting party. You’ll be done in no time. And your centerpieces will be gorgeous. 

How to Tint Mason Jars

Mason jars always make beautiful centerpieces for a dinner or coffee table. Whether you add flowers, candles or twinkle lights, they’re sure to look great wherever you place them.

They also make some cute and budget-friendly organizers in your kitchen. Use them to hold ingredients in your pantry, cooking utensils or even to plant a couple of fresh herbs.

You can also use tinted mason jars in your bathroom. I keep cotton swabs and bath salts in mason jars. I added distressed knobs to the lids. These are perfect for my coastal inspired master bath.

Mason jars make awesome soap dispensers. Tint the jars to match your bathroom decor and purchase the dispenser from Amazon (below).
