DIY Turquoise Glitter Jars

Using a jar I bought at the dollar store and an old candle votive, I spiced them up using acrylic paint, glitter, and mod podge!

Here is what I did..

 

Step 1: Using your choice of color, paint the jar with even brushstrokes. Then place upside down on a flat surface (hence paper plate) to allow any excess paint to drip out. Make sure that it is completely dry before you move on to the next step.

Step 2: Using a small paintbrush (I used a cheap one that came with a paint kit) apply a small amount of mod podge to the rim of the jar.

Step 3: Pour about a tablespoon worth of glitter onto a paper plate.

Step 4: Dunk the jar into the glitter making sure to cover all areas that have been mod-podged. Make sure to let the glitter dry for a while, I placed mine in the hot Arizona sun for about 15 minutes.

And all done!
