50. Painted Mason Jars 

Ever since the rise in popularity of farmhouse decor, painted mason jars have appeared on Etsy in all shapes and sizes. They have been made into flower vases, sconces, centerpieces, and even soap dispensers. While some people spend their money buying these at craft shows, they are actually very easy to make!

Walmart sells 10-packs of mason jars for just $10. If you do not have a Walmart nearby, most large grocery stores will sell them in the same aisle where you would find aluminum foil and saran wrap. (You don’t necessarily have to use Mason jars, either. Any glass containers will do.) Next, you need to buy some chalk finish paint. These come in various colors, and they always dry with a matte pastel finish. Be sure to lay out some newspaper before you paint over top of the jars. Allow them to dry, and voila! You have an adorable farmhouse decor piece for your home.
