DIY using Mason Jars as Candle Base or Vase using spray paint

Spray paint..  that is a must have item these days in my stash of craft supplies.
You can quickly give something a completely different look and it is rather inexpensive.

Another must have item.. Mason Jars in all sizes.

So why not mix the 2..
I decided I wanted to use some of my Mason Jars as a candle base, but wanted them to
look distressed or shabby.. and give a little color.

So I got some spray paint, in different shades.
(the one above is a very pale pink, I also chose white, and gray)

I picked out a few jars, gave them each a quick coat of spray paint. (which dried fast)

Then I gently rubbed the paint with a paper towel, or old rag works great too.. 
(Note: The dry paper towel took off quite a bit of paint, so I tried it dampened and I liked that better, didn't take off quite so much.)

Then I added my glass base that I re purposed from a Candle Jar, you can see how I did that
HERE..  and topped it off with a votive candle.


I also used one as a vase.
