More & More Gold.

12 Mar

Who doesn’t love chic & fun drinking glasses, right? Right. With a stash of 250 Mason jars, I was determined to incorporate these fun drinking cups into our New Years Eve, Black Tie wedding. Cue the gold spray paint….again. Oh ya baby…gold spray paint works magic!

This is a beyond easy DIY. All you need is a mason jar, gold spray paint & ribbon + some extra time (easily the hardest ingredient to acquire in this recipe).


-Keep the lids tight on the jars (this protects the interior and top section from paint).

-Flip jars upside down, so lid is facing down.

-Line jars on a table protected in a paint cloth.

-Spray 12″ away from jar, covering all surfaces. I used Design Masters 731 Gold.

-Touch ups may be required along bottom portion.

-Let dry.

-Remove lid & tie ribbon.

Et voila! It’s always in the details & these chic mason jars are so much more adorable than regular, old drinking glasses.

Carpe Diem, 


PS. I love the last photo for many reasons, one being that the “M” in “Mr.” fell off. Just goes to show something will go wrong, but in the end…nobody cares! Really, I promise.  :)
