Acrylic paint is water based, so if you paint the inside of your jars you won’t be able to fill them with water without the paint washing away.So this site suggests putting a paper cup in the bottom first if you want to use the jars as a vase.After seeing these jars on Pinterest, I knew I liked the jars in different shades of the same color–I decided to go with blues. Shades of blue acrylic craft paint, and white so that I could dilute any of the colors to a lighter shade.First I squirted a generous amount of paint directly into the bottom of the jar (approximately 1/2 an inch).

Then go with a grain or a protein, or anything else big and chunky. The ingredients that you want to stay dry until juuuust before you eat it. That way when you turn the Mason jar over and unload it all into a bowl, the greens will make the salad bed. The pomegranates have vitamin C, the greens and pear slices have fiber, and the chopped nuts and crumbled feta provide healthy fat and protein. One cup of cooked farro contains about 10 grams of fiber and 14 grams of protein — which means that it'll keep you feeling full and happy well into the afternoon.
This guarantees that your salad ingredients don't get soggy.
A Mason jar, named after John Landis Mason who first invented and patented it in 1858, is a molded glass jar used in home canning to preserve food.
The jar's mouth has a screw thread on its outer perimeter to accept a metal ring (or "band").
