  1. 01

    Clean Moccona jars, remove labels and lids. Rinse all soapy water, fingerprints or grease.

  2. 02

    On a protected surface and in open air, paint the jars. Two coats will reduce the brush strokes, although 4 coats of paint on the white jars were needed to make the brush strokes disappear.

  3. 03

    Let the painted jars dry overnight.

  4. 04

    Arrange your flowers so that when they catch your eye your heart sings with joy.
