If you’ve ever been sucked in to Teavana and indulged in some of their delicious tea you know their overpriced loose leaf tea is totally worth it! However, then they suck you in with the need for the tightly sealed enclosed containers too. Well, I have just the solution!
As most tea drinkers know, loose leaf tea is best kept in a tightly sealed dark container. So throwing your fancy tea in just any jar isn’t quite going to cut it, so here’s how to make a loose leaf tea jar.
Gold spray paint
Gather some old mason jars and your chalkboard paint. All you need to do is paint your jars with a few coats of chalkboard paint, spray paint your lids, and you’re good to go.
After applying the first coat, you might be worried that the paint isn’t going to stick to the jar. I promise it will look one thousand percent better after the second coat. Be sure to wait about an hour between each coat of paint.
Tip: Buy a roll of this painter’s masking paper to keep on hand for painting projects. Makes clean up so much easier!
I took some cardstock I had laying on my desk, traced the lid circle on the paper, cut it out, and then spray painted the paper using the same spray paint I used on the metal lid. I love how the rose gold pops against the matte chalkboard jar.
Such an easy DIY project and works great to store all your fancy tea!
