How to make frosted mason jars

Most people love the look of mason jars, but sometimes it's fun to spruce them up a bit. It doesn't take much to give a mason jar a makeover. This tutorial will show you how to do it using little more than some paint and some ribbon.
You can use it like a vase as shown in the tutorial, but there are plenty of other things you could do with it as well. Why not use it to hold cotton balls in the bathroom or for pencils in your home office? The possibilities are almost endless.
