(They're actually pickle jars)
I cleaned them, and washed them twice, so I promise that they don't smell like pickles!
You've seen the pins, right? The ones with the paint being swirled around a Mason jar?
That's exactly what I did ... and, man. It uses a LOT of paint. I had a few half-full craft paints, and that just didn't cut it. My plan was to have a pink jar and a turquoise jar. But I didn't have enough turquoise paint to cover the entire jar.
So instead, I have a pink jar and a yellow jar.
And I plan to throw the yellow one away. I just don't like it. It's rather transparent. I could add another coat of paint...but the yellow just isn't my style.

I bought more pickles, though. So I can choose another color, and actually like the project.
I guess I'd kind of consider this pin project a bit of a fail. I wasn't happy with the result. Both of the jars have some marks on the inside from clumps of paint. BUT, I will be trying again. With colors that are more my style...
My tip for you, though, should you decide to do this project is this:
Use new paint.
My paint was at least 2 years old. It was all gloppy and gloopy. Please. Use new paint.
