Ceramic Looking Glass Jars DIY

 My husband loves haricots verts (which is sort of a chic name for skinny green beans), so we eat them every so often. I always buy them in jars, so I have lots of jars and am always on the look out for nice DIY projects to use them. 

Last week several really great tutorials about glass jars looking like structured ceramic pots came along in my Pinterest feed. The best thing was you only need two ingredients: baking powder and acrylic paint, items I have plenty of in my house. I started right away and love the result!

And... roses from my own garden!

What you need

acrylic paint in a color you like

2 tbsp baking powder 

glass jars


What to do

Mix paint and baking powder 1:1

Clean the jars to degrease them

Apply the first layer and let dry completely

Apply another layer, let dry 

Repeat until the jars are completely covered

That's it!

  3. I have never seen this before but will be trying it out. I have lots of jars that need a DIY project for them. #HomeMattersParty

  4. I like the finish and it couldn't be easier. It would be nice to have several jars filled with flowers. Thanks for sharing with us at Creatively Crafty #ccbg :)

  5. The texture you get with the baking powder is great. What a lovely upcycle


  6. Very clever! Thank you for sharing at Party In Your PJ's.
