Hi everyone! It’s me, Paige, here again with another craft project! You may remember when I shared a DIY glitter desk accessory last month. Me and Ange both love glitter, so I love sharing these fun glitter projects with all of you. Since we love it so much, I’m back with another fun glitter project.
This time, I’m sharing this adorable DIY glitter mason jar vase. It’s insanely simple and looks pretty freaking adorable, even if I do say so myself. I love that you can change it to your favorite colors or change what you put in it to match the seasons and holidays.
I made mine a fun metallic silver which is another one of my obsessions. Glitter + Metallic = Love (which is perfect with Valentine’s Day coming up!)
Anyway, I guess I better stop talking and get into the project, right?
Here’s what you do:
First, gather your supplies:
- Mason Jar/s
- Painter’s Tape
- Foam Paint Brush
- Glitter in your color choice
- Spray paint in your color choice
- Mod Podge
First, you’ll take your mason jars outside and give them a nice coating of spray paint. Then you’ll need to let them dry thoroughly. Since it’s freezing right now, that’s probably going to take an hour or so at least.
Then, take them back inside and apply painter’s tape to mark off where you want the glitter. On my smaller jar, I decided to do the bottom in glitter and on my bigger jar, I made both the top and bottom of the jar covered in glitter.
Then you’re going to use the same technique you used to make your glitter desk accessory. First, paint on a layer of mod podge and sprinkle glitter all over it. Set aside to dry for about 15-20 minutes.
Then do another layer of mod podge right over the glitter and do another layer of glitter. Let dry again.
Finally, do one final layer of mod podge and let dry. This is not water proof, but if you want to make it water proof, you can use an acrylic sealing spray so you don’t have to worry about these getting wet.
And you’re done! Easy right?
