DIY: Mason Jar Lights

What you need:
– Mason Jars
– Paint (i.e. orange, green purple)
– Large Paint Brush
– Battery-Powered Candle Lights
– Design Templates (optional)

Directions:
1. Make sure the inside of your jars are completely clean.
2. Paint the inside of your jars with the colored paint of your choice in thin layers (allow the paint to dry between each layer).
3. If you’re using a template, cut it down to a size that will fit into your jar. Curl it into the jar and you should see the design through the glass. Or feel free to create your own design!
4. With the fine tip paint pen, trace the design.
5. Fill in the design with the wide tip paint pen.
6. When the jars are dry, turn on your lights and place them inside the jars. You’re done!

Bedroom Makeover Contest

Congratulations to Allison at TurtleCreek Apartments in Des Moines for winning our bedroom makeover contest!

“I moved into my new apartment and had a mix match of old college decorations, my mom’s old decorations and items from my old bedroom as a child. I’m slowly trying to upgrade my apartment to fit my style! This is so exciting my room needed this so badly it’s embarrassing! Thank you very much!”
