I considered not posting this but hey, it may come handy to someone, somewhere. We recently purchased a small outdoor set for our backyard area. The weather has been so nice and the daylight is disappearing around 8.30pm so plenty of nice daylight left for hubby and I to sit back, enjoy a wine or a tea and just chill and chat. I wanted it make it pretty so I got a couple of items from my kitchen, some beautiful hydrangea’s from my garden and off I went to decorate my new little outdoor table. I wasn’t feeling it with the mason jar, it was too clear.
I only have 6 mason jars which I cherish. Since moving to Belgium I can’t find any anywhere, not the Ball Mason brand anyway. I’m on the hunt. I love the look of the blue mason jar but don’t own any and blue was just the perfect colour for my arrangement so I did a little brain storming and this is what I came up with. It’s ridiculously easy, cheap and best of all not permanent.
HOW TO TURN MASON JARS BLUE THE QUICK, EASY AND CHEAP WAY
The answer is food colouring. I filled the mason jar all the way up to the top and placed 1 drop of food colouring into the water. Stirred around and I was happy with the shade of blue I got. You can dilute or make it darker if you wish. You can do this with any food colouring meaning you can have pink, yellow, green, purple (whatever your desire) mason jars without buying a million different jars. Also without the mess of painting/tinting or the permanent results!

Maybe you have thought of this already or have done it already but I felt pretty clever. haha.
So there you have it! This is how you turn mason jars blue the quickest, easiest, cleanest and cheapest way possible.
Have you done this before? What are other clever ways you have changed the look of your jars?
By the way do you like my massive photo overload? I loved my display so much and the photos where turning our so pretty that I couldn’t stop snapping away then was faces with the difficult decision to choose which ones I would share… Obviously I’ve decided to share a lot!
