Beautiful Peony Flower Jar

Filled with beautiful blooming perenial flowers our mom’s Summer garden is one of our favorite places to walk around and enjoy. We were excited to create a simple chalky painted mason jar vase to display her gorgeous peonies.

Although it’s true, we may have a bit of a weakness when it comes to peonies, having recently made these felt peony flowers that we can enjoy all year long. But as other flowers start to grow, bloom and thrive inthe garden we will happily create more mason jar flower arrangements using these vases.

Materials Needed:

Materials needed to make a chalky painted mason jar glower vase, including mason jars, paint, paintbrush, Cricut machine, vinyl, a grip mat and Cricut weeding tools.

How to Make a Pretty Chalky Painted Mason Jar Flower Vase:

Gather all the supplies needed and thoroughly wash the jars with soap and hot water, leaving them to dry completely before using.

Preparing the Mason Jars
