I recently bought my first house and I have been trying to add touches of my personal style into my home décor. Last Sunday was a rainy day here in South Florida, so it was the perfect time to do a rainy day project to decorate my new space. I decided to make a DIY glittery mason jar to use as a vase for my kitchen counter.
Glittery mason jars are very easy to create and can be used to add a sparkly touch to any room in your house. You can use the jar as a penholder on your desk, a makeup brush holder on your vanity, or as a festive vase for your entry table during the holidays.
Wherever you decide to place your glittery mason jar, it’s sure to add a chic accent to any room in your home.
- Mason Jar (Select the size based on what you are planning to use the jar for)
- Modge Podge, Gloss Finish
- 2 sizes of glitter (a combination of large flecks of glitter and small flecks is recommended for best results)
- Paint Brush
- Skewer (not pictured above)
Step One: Using your brush, paint the inside of the jar with Modge Podge. Make sure to evenly coat the jar with a thin coat of Modge Podge.
Step Two: While the Modge Podge is still wet and tacky, tilt your jar to the side and sprinkle the large flecks of glitter inside. For best results, do one side at a time. If you get a clump of glitter in once section, you can separate it using the skewer. Once you have a coat of large glitter on the walls of the jar, you can sprinkle some on the bottom and along the upper rim of the jar.
Step Three: Now you will want to switch to your small/fine glitter and apply it to the jar using the same method used in step two. You will want to make sure that every part of the jar is covered in glitter at the point. Pouring a large amount of the fine glitter into the jar and swishing it around is an easy way to evenly coat the jar. Once the jar is fully coated, shake out the excess glitter.
Step Four: Once your jar is coated, set it to dry. For quicker drying, place the jar by a window or use a blow dryer to speed up the process.
You will notice that once the Modge Podge begins to dry, it will turn from white to clear. Wait until all sections of the product have turned clear before using the jar.
Here is the finished product!
