I began by painting 2 mason jars with a blue chalky paint.

One coat is all you'll need. You can use any jar for this, a pasta jar, jelly jar, just check the recycle bin.

When the blue dried the next step was to paint over it with a white chalky paint

I painted in one direction, let it dry then painted another coat in the other direction giving a fine linen texture to the jar.

You can see how the blue peeked out of the inside of the jar making it extra special.

Now it was time to add my transfer. I was introduced to Redesign with Prima by a friend and there is no going back now. 

I've used them on several projects recently like the tiered birds nests, and the vintage cupboard I repainted for my office

The transfer kit I used comes with several designs, today I'm using a couple of the smaller ones. 

I love that you can cut up the large transfer into whichever words you need for your project.

These transfers are so incredibly easy to use. 

All you do is cut the design for the layout you want and rub it onto the surface of your project with a wooden stick. 

That's it!

I don't think you really need to but I sprayed the finished transfer with a matte spray paint for durability on these vases.

You can't see any plastic around the letters at all. 

Just lettering on the jar, it looks like they were hand lettered. 

The transfers are so easy to use you're going to want to add them to everything! 

And I have been. 

They come in many designs, and colors, graphics, and flowers, everything you need to embellish your latest DIY project.
