Paint the inside of a mason jar. Get instant beautiful home decor.
souvenir jars?? ohhhhhhh <3
Between crushes, fascinations and lust-have trends, our sea of inspiration is never-ending, which brings me to my latest obsession… the color MINT! From my manicures to my midnight snacks, I just cant get enough. I took a cue from my go-to hue and decided to inject a happy medium (literally) into my home. A new coat of paint can transform a room and your mood, but choosing the right color can be a little nerve-racking. I dove into this DIY with my head and paint brush held high knowing that Valspar’s Love Your Color Guarantee would be my safety net. Make your home stylish from the floor to ceiling with a freshly painted feeling!
To create: Chose three paint colors in a light, medium, and darker shade that hail from the same color family. I chose Valspar’s Ultra Green (light), Beach Blanket (medium), and Sea Treasure (dark).
STEP 1: Trim wall with painter’s tape and use a roller to paint entire wall the lightest hue. STEP 2: Paint a bottom panel with the darkest hue. STEP 3: Mix your medium and dark shade together to create the 2nd darkest color and paint a section. Next, move up on the wall and paint the 3rd section the middle color only. STEP 4: Blend the colors together using a smaller paint brush that is DRY, until areas and lines bleed together. You may need to touch up with mixed paint as you go, as it takes on an amazing ombré effect.

DIY Jewellery Tree!
So, i was walking around with my friend Lucy today sort-of looking for a white jewellery tree, and i couldn’t find one under $20, and there was no way i was going to pay that much for something that was probably fake plastic anyway. On my way home from the bus stop i spotted one of these nice twigs, and i thought “gee i can do this myself!” So, here goes:
what you will need:
- 3 or 4 decent sized twigs, my tree stands stands about 50cm tall, so it is quite big. you want to make sure your twig has a lot of different little fingers on it, and sticking out at many different angles, this helps hold your jewellery in place!
- a bottle, or vase, small or large. I used an old coke bottle.
- jewellery, preferably delicate, the thicker/chunkier types need thicker branches.
how to make it:
- put your sticks in the jar. tape them up with sticky tape if you would like to.
- arrange prettily with jewellery
and there you have it my friends, a good old jewellery tree!
