So yesterday I posted how the tutorial on how to color mason jars and you guys went crazy over it! Well, little did you know that I had this baby hiding in my kitchen! What's better than making a colored mason jar!? A sparkley, glittery, amazingly beautiful Glitter Mason Jar! I'm in love <3
Here is your line up. Regular glitter (any color), Glossy Mod Podge, Mason Jars (or any clear jar).
I purchased all of this from my local Michaels.
Pour a bunch of Mod Podge in your jar. About an inch deep if you are using a large mason jar. About a half inch for the small jar. (above)
Now pour your glitter in. The more glitter the more vibrant.
I used about 2 tablespoons for this small jar.
Mix your glitter and glue together. Make sure it's all combined.
Now use your hand to tilt the jar every which way until the glitter glue covers the entire jar. Make sure not to use a spatula or anything to scrape the sides because it will leave streaks. You need a good thick coating so just do as told and slide the glue around by tilting the jar only : )
Now place the jar on a paper plate so any excess glue pours out. If you have a tun of excess you can let it drip into another jar, but there shouldn't be that much left in the jar. (Tip: If doing multiple jars just mix a whole bunch of Mod Podge and glitter in a bowl and pour into each mason jar.) After the excess drips out (about an hour) Flip the mason jar over and let it dry. Depending on how warm your house is this could take 24-48 hours.
And there you go! Stunning right? Now just like the colored jars you cannot eat or drink out of these. We used glue so these are only for decor. For the glitter jar on the right I used a clear jar I had in the house. You can use salad dressing jars, pickle jars, anything clear. I just love these!
