Sharing helps others too!


What do you get when you smash together mason jars and glass knobs??

Well, if you really smash them…

…a lot of glass to clean up! 🙂

But if you’re creating instead of smashing….

you get….

Mason Jars and Glass Knobs in a creative way!


Fun colorful containers perfect for Valentine cookies or Easter candy!


Plus add burlap to the rings for a farmhouse style!  I used Mod Podge to “glue” on the burlap strips around the mason jar rings.  To keep the burlap from fraying all over the room check out my tip here.

Anyway, I wanted to test glass painting techniques.

The turquoise jar and glass knob is plain o’ Mod Podge mixed with craft paint.  I added approximately 2 parts Mod Podge to 1 part turquoise craft paint.

The hot pink is a Mod Podge “new to me” product.  Mod Podge craft paint.  I just grabbed what I thought would be a soft pink color.  I didn’t squint to read the label.  It turned out hot pink and clear.  The jar has three coats.

The soft green is Americana chalky paint in Vintage.

It’s my personal favorite.


The idea of painting glass knobs can when I painted our dresser.  You can see those knobs here.

To add the glass knobs, just drill a hole in the center of the seal and screw on.


Here I added the mason jars and glass knobs to a spindle crate.


Following me, you know the jars are too colorful for our home.  I do plan on making more to use as containers to give to friends for Valentine and Easter.  I made a jar that would fit our pantry style.  Americana chalky paint in Carbon does the trick!  PLUS there is something about the glass knobs in black that I’m loving!

I love black beans.  A pot of black beans, homemade salsa, cilantro chicken, sour cream and warm chips…yum!  Notice the picture, I don’t have black beans in the pantry!   But when I buy black beans…

I’ll have the perfect container!

  1. My fave is the chalky paint. I use jars for leftovers and storing any food I buy that comes in a package. These are so much cuter than my plain ol’ jars! I have a ton of old white knobs too (remember those from the 80’s?) Can’t wait to cutify my jars now!
