Painting Mason Jars to look like Birds EggsThese painted Mason Jars (inspired by Bluebird Eggs) are the perfect spring display that you can quickly and easily create. Below are the directions on how we made ours.

Bird’s eggs come in a huge variety of beautiful colors and patterns. Create your Bird’s Egg Mason Jar to reflect your favorite egg or bird. Or make a grouping of different ones for a larger display. Project created by Sarah for Craft Warehouse
