DIY Mason Glitter Jars

It sure feels like Spring is here with the temps in the 80’s so I’m celebrating with some DIY mason glitter jars filled with flowers!  Make sure you stop by at the end of the post to see what my wonderful blog friends created with their mason jars for our Spring in a Mason Jar Party!

When I think of spring I think of farmers markets, fresh fruits and veggies, gardening and fresh flowers!  It has been so nice to see the roses blooming in our front yard and to be able to pick a nice bouquet.

This project is so simple it shouldn’t take you no longer then 10 minutes and you most likely have all the supplies.

You need three simple supplies:
Glitter (any color) (extra fine)
Glossy Mod Podge
Mason Jars

How to make glitter jars


~Pour about an inch of Mod Podge in your jar
~Pour about 2 tablespoons of glitter on top of the mod
~Tilt the jar while turning until the mixture covers the entire jar
~If you are only making one jar place it upside down on a paper plate so any excess glue pours out. If you are making more then 1 jar, let it drip into another jar.
~Everything should be dry and ready to use within 24 hours.

IMPORTANT~ If you would like to add flowers or anything that needs water into the jar, make sure to place a small plastic cup inside.  Then add water into the plastic cup and then the flowers.  

~So simple yet so pretty~

  1. These are so pretty Kristin! Would be so fun for an Easter table, a little hostess gift, and just put around the house! Extra special filled with flowers from your own garden! We are enjoying gorgeous weather up here too and living it! Getting ready to spend time in my garden today. Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. These are so pretty, Kristin!! XO

  3. Kristin, I am thinking about using these for my parents 50th wedding reception. Can you fill the jars with water, or water beads for fresh flowers, without affecting the mod podge?? They are so beautiful, by the way!!

  5. Could you tell us what color and/ or brand name of the glitter you used. It looks light pink when you poured it in the jar but your final product looks irridescent. Thank you for sharing 💛 it’s beautiful!

  6. I made some of these last night. But I had one little problem. I tried it with the fine glitter and it worked great, but when I tried it with a bigger grain of glitter something went horribly wrong. I followed your instructions to the T and the ones I used the bigger glitter most of the mod podge came off and fell onto the plate. Was it something I did wrong or is it because of the bigger glitter?

  7. Do you have water in there for the flowers, or are they just placed in there? How long did they last, if without water? Thinking of centerpieces. 🙂

  8. I want to do this to a 64oz sized cookie jar. Will I need the same inch of mod podge in the bottom and 2 tablespoons of glitter? Or will I need more glitter for a jar that big?
