Today let's look at something glittery. I first saw this tutorial at A Beautiful Mess and fell crazy in love. I thought this would be a perfect way to make my Animal Jars even more fun.
First I bought a couple of jars to try this out on. I went for smooth jars but I also tried it on a smaller jar that wasn't smooth. I bought Mod Podge for the first time in a million years. I can't believe I've gone this long without using it.
I painted a pattern inside the jar and used a paper towel to clean around the edges.
In this one I attempted a chevron design but it looked more like a squiggle.
And then pour the glitter...
When that dries go with the next color.
After waiting a very long time most of it had dried but the squiggle jar was still pretty white.
The next day I had better results but the squiggle jar is still being kind of weird. I'm thinking maybe a hairdryer will get that last little bit?
Now I just need to coat the inside with a final layer of Mod Podge to keep the glitter in one place.
This was super fun. I can wait to add something cute to the lid. I'm trying to come up with ideas for the lids that aren't just animals. Any suggestions?
