These Patriotic Mason Jar Lanterns are perfect for Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day!
Anyone who has followed me for awhile knows that these mason jar lanterns are my jam. I love making them for the holidays! I’ve done one for fall, Easter and a variation for St. Patricks Day! Spray painting in SW Missouri can be challenging. It gets pretty windy around here. When HomeRight asked me to try their spray paint shelter, it was like my prayers had been answered!
This pop up spray paint shelter comes in a nice little storage bag.
Like the bag says, it controls overspray drift. This has always been my problem with the wind. I feel like I waste the spray paint. Then I end up over spraying to compensate which leaves the paint all drippy and gross looking.
I took mine out of the bag and it literally pops up and is ready to go. To spare my back, I placed it on our card table in the garage.
It provides a nice, clean surface for working. There is a small vented window in the back to help with fumes.
The turn table is perfect for small projects like painting mason jars! It is basically a lazy susan that allows you to rotate the piece you are working on without messing up the paint.
How to make your own Patriotic Mason Jar Lanterns
I started the project by cutting a small star out of adhesive vinyl. You can also use star stickers if you do not have a cutting machine.
Place mason jar upside down on the turn table. Holding the spray paint 8-10 inches away from the mason, apply spray paint in light coats. Slowly rotate the turn table and continue spraying a light coat of paint until the entire mason jar is covered. Allow time to dry between coats. Continue the above process until you cannot see through the paint.
After you have coated the mason jar, allow about 2 hours drying time. Carefully peel away the vinyl or sticker from the mason jar.
Add some aquarium gravel and a votive candle to the inside of the mason jar. Finish the look by adding some twine around the neck of the jar.
Where has this spray shelter been all my life?! Seriously, it made this project 10 times easier. My jars turned out perfect! These Patriotic Mason Jar Lanterns are my new favorite 4th of July decoration!
They look super cute at night on my deck (while I’m sipping wine and listening to crickets…just kidding).
I’d love for you to pin this image!
