DIY: Glitter Mason Jar

How to make a glitter mason jar.
Easy, fun, and very inexpensive!

Before you start, you will need . . .
Supplies: Loose Glitter, Mason Jars (both from the dollar store), Paint Brush, Paper Bowl, Craft Glue, Painters Tape (not pictured), and newspaper


Step 1:
Tape your mason jar just above the area you want the glitter for a clean, fresh edge.

Step 2:
Use your paintbrush to paint the area of the mason jar where you want the glitter to sparkle.


Step 3: After the area is covered with glue, Sprinkle the glitter! I used a paper bowl to catch the stragglers and keep the mess minimum.

Step 4: Let glitter dry in the paper bowl for at least one hour (I waited longer just to be safe).
Step 5: Remove painters tape slowly, and..


 Job Finished!
(Note: I did not put glue or glitter on the bottom of the jar.)



 I love it! 
I've wanted to do this DIY project for so long, and I'm so happy I did. It was very easy and inexpensive. Nearly every supply item can be found at the dollar store.
I think it makes a perfect home for my glitter pens!
