Spray painted mason jar lids safe? Sign In/Join

I saw these diy spray painted mason jar lids on Pinterest. I would consider doing it for a babyshower but, I'm afraid it's not safe. What are you thoughts safe or not?

Those jars are so cute. I would google your question and see what you get. Unless there is someone out there that has made these before.

You are not going to spray the inside, are you?

No, just the jar lids. It made me a little uneasy, I think about safety (sometimes to the point of seeming paranoid, lol) Just because I've read that people do it, it doesn't mean it's ok. I like to gather my info before I make a decision Smile

I found them on Pinterest, and thought they were really cute. I want to either do the painted lid ones (if safe) or something like these:

Being a cancer survivor, I tend to be overly cautious. It is safe to spray paint the lids outdoors so there are no fumes to breath or cover surfaces indoors. You do not want the paint to come in contact with any thing that will be going into your mouth. You can either use school glue and newpaper or tape and paper to cover any surfaces you do not want painted. Once the paint is completely dried and aged--I wait a minimum of 24 hours--wash the item to remove all paper and glue.
