Distressed & Stenciled Pickle Jars

distressed & stenciled pickle jars kreativk.net

Ok, before I tell you about these distressed & stenciled pickle jars, I have to tell you that we LOVE sweet pickles in this house! On a sandwich or just like that, oh so good! And they come in such cute jars that I’m accumulating quite the collection. So I thought I make something with these, they are cute as they are, but I wanted to give them a little bit of charm.

And what better way to do that than with chalky finish paint?! And some stencils!ย

Distressed & Stenciled Pickle Jars

What I’ve used:

~ pretty jars [in my case pickle jars ๐Ÿ™‚ ]

~ chalky finish paintย ย 

~ these stencils for the numbers

~ a black permanent marker

~ sandpaper

I gave them a good cleaning and took off the labels by filling the jars with boiling water. After 5 minutes I just peeled off the lables, so easy!ย [careful, this is still hot, so you can burn yourself easily!]

After two coats of chalky finish paint they looked like this:

I grabbed a black permanent marker and my stencils…

This is how they looked after applying the stencils with the marker:

And then I just distressed the jars and numbers carefully with sandpaper, until they looked like this:

You could use them as little flower vases or storage on a desk and the possibilities are endless! I planned on using them for my outdoor space, since the weather is absolutely BBQ worthy!

    I love the look of painted jars. The pickle jars look great, a little different from mason jars.

    Katrin I have the same jars. But mine hold honey instead of pickles. Hah! Love how you’ve repurposed them. They look fresh and pretty. And yes I can’t wait for things to get better so we can eat outside.

    Ah so cute! This got me thinking… if you used four pickle jars and applied the numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 to them, you could use them as an Adventskranz for Christmas and place some candles or tealights inside!! Maybe decorate with some fir branches etc… I’m totally going to do that for next Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Happy Wednesday!
