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!
What you’ll need:
- Mod podge
- Paint brush
- Paper plate
- Acrylic paint
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!
