Mason jars and Garden Markers


Happy Tuesday ! Last week my daughter and I ran into the Good Will and bought some Mason Jars..We used 2 colors of acrylic paint and 1 sample paint from Lowes to paint the inside of the jars. We added ribbon and twine to the rm of the jars .. I placed mine on a pedestal platter on my kitchen table. We put water in them for the flowers and the paint seems ok. I think they turned out really cute :)  We already stocked up on more jars for future projects !

 I also made some row markers for my garden. I got the little fences and hearts at Hobby Lobby, ( they are really cheap, and already painted:) ) , my son drilled holes in the top of the hearts for the ribbon to go through. I used a paint marker to put the different vegetable names on.

 I tied the markers to the garden fence with twine.
 I planted our garden last week , we had temperatures in the 80' s .. I had to cover everything in the garden Saturday and Sunday night because of frost. Everything seems ok and hopefully thats the last of that cold weather !! We planted potatoes, both in the ground and in 2 big pots.Spinach, Tomatoes, green beans , zucchini , cucumbers, peppers , eggplant and some herbs ( basil, parsley , cilantro ). Hope this is a good year for the garden :) The strawberries are blooming like crazy .. Can't wait for those !
Hope all you Moms were spoiled by your children on MOther's day , I sure was and am very proud and appreciative of all my Kids !

Hope you all have a great week!

Love your jar makeovers, Priscilla--glad the paint did okay with water in them... The colors you used are all so pretty.

And your little garden row markers are so cute... We had to cover our veggies last night due to the freeze. Luckily, everything seems to have come through with flying colors :) Hope your garden does well again last year--I still remember how many berries you had last summer!

I am too lazy to do all these thing, making garden markers at home and other things. So that I always buy plant labels for my little herb garden. But your markers are looking very cute and your jars are looking very nice. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.
