Painted milk jars

Pinterest has so many great ideas for DIY decorating.  I really enjoy trying new crafts and when I saw painted milk jars I wanted to try.

I've had some milk jars that I bought with chocolate milk a few months ago--not vintage ones.  I thought they would be pretty painted.

I think this looks really pretty in my vintage milk carrier. Plan on making more to fill it up and in different colors.

I used regular water based acrylic paint but it won't be able to add water for fresh flowers.  Saw another pin that used oil based paint that would be able to hold water.  My next ones I will use this paint.

Hi Ann,

What an excellent idea. Now you're stylin'. Isn’t it fun finding blue?

Happy Blue Monday!

Hi Ann, Thanks for your visit on PS.We were gone for the weekend so I am late visiting everyone.

Your painted milk bottle is a fun idea. I love the old milk bottle container. I remember when our milk was delivered to our home. I loved that luxury so much.

xo, Jeanne

Such pretty blues! I love those old milk bottles. My goodness, today everything seems to be disposable! I am a hard core recycle queen! When we cleaned our pantry out yesterday I recycled all the paper and glass that I could! I was looking at fall flowers and may try to make my own Wreath this year! Wink Wink! Let you know how it goes! Hugs, Anne
