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
~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~
Now be sure to head over to visit all of these talented bloggers to see all their wonderful Spring mason jar creations! A huge thanks to my friend Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline for working so hard at putting this fun party together!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
Beautiful idea Kristin! Love it. These would be gorgeous on a wedding table too.
These are just so adorable. Lucky you, being able to pick flowers directly from your backyard so soon! Have a great day.
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!
This is just beautiful, Kristin. I love anything sparkly and this captures color so fabulously!
p.s. I am sooooo jealous 😉 ~ we still have snow, snow, snow everywhere!
Kristin, I love your glittery mason jar! Also the color of your flowers is perfect. Love the soft coraly pink color.
I love those Kristin!! So beautiful. It’s almost 70 here in Oregon and we are LOVING it! 🙂
So magical looking and they’d be lovely for a wedding too! Pinning!
Does it have to be glossy modpodge? I only have matte on hand and 8m wondering if it will make a big difference.
No you could use either, let me know how it turns out.
So pretty Kristin! They are perfect for spring!
So pretty! Love how it sparkles!
So pretty Kristin! I’m thinking those would be so cute in my girls’ bathroom to hold accessories. Pinned!
These are so pretty, Kristin!! XO
Wow – sparkle and shine! Just my style!! 😉 Gorgeous mason jar decor idea Kristin!
The jar/vase is so cute! Funny, it doesn’t look pink! Pretty flowers, too. Love it!
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!!
i think i
saw that there is a water proof modge podge
Oh, I will have to go look, thanks for the tip!
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!
Thank you Becka, it is Recollections extra fine glitter in blush/rose clair.
So cute! I love that this could work for so many different occasions and seasons. And who doesn’t love glitter?!
Thank you so much
This is just gorgeous — perfect for spring!Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday –pinned!
Thank you Dee
Was this hard to get everything all covered?? Looks really cute and easy! I always save all my old jars! Thanks for linking up at the #HomeMattersParty !
It was super easy! 🙂
This is so pretty. Thanks for sharing on Idea Box. This will be featured on my blog tomorrow!
Thank you Cyndee
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?
I’m so sorry that happened, I have only used the fine glitter so sounds like that might be the problem.
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. 🙂
A small plastic cup inside works great for flowers?
Yes, perfect solution Leslie, thank you!
You can place a plastic or Styrofoam cup inside for water when using it for a vase! ?
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?
That should cover it just fine, let me know if you have any other questions and remember not to add water to the jar. 🙂
