Instructions

  1. Always begin by cleaning and drying your mason jar. 
  2. Swirl Method: Pour Sheer Color Mod Podge into the jar. Swirl the Sheer Color around the inside until it covers all the sides. Turn the jar upside down into a paper cup and let the excess drizzle out of the jar. Allow it to sit for 10 hours. Turn the jar over and allow it to dry until the color is clear. Use a craft knife to trim off any excess around the rim. 
  3. Brush-On Method: Apply sheer color to the outside of the jar with a paintbrush. Apply as many coats as you wish until your desired color is reached. Allow for dry time in between coats. 
  4. Place a Mod Podge stencil across the front of a jar. Spounce Mod Podge gloss over the stencil. Remove the stencil, poof the glitter over the stenciled area. Allow to dry and brush off excess glitter with a dry paintbrush. Repeat for the other side. Wash the stencil, reattach to the carrier sheet and use again. 
  5. Attach glitzy trims to the vases and lanterns using craft glue. The jars that are made with the brush-on technique are suitable for filling with water or candles. The swirl technique is best used with silk flowers, glow sticks or battery operated candles. 

Tip: When glittering, glitter over a file folder. You can fold the file up and use it as a funnel for recycling glitter.
