Glittered Jars

SONY DSC Are you looking for a way to add a little glam to your home for very little cost? Well, then this project is for you! I love the sparkle and shine, and who would guess this was once a pickle jar! And it is so easy too (given you have warm temperatures this time of year).

SONY DSC To make yourself, you’ll need empty glass jars, spray paint, and matching glitter colors. I loved the Craft Bond glue and glitter from Elmer’s.

SONY DSC First, spray paint your jars. I love how pretty these jars are with a coat of paint on them. Spray on 3 light coats, or until you can’t see through the jars. I like to start with the tops down, and coat the bottom and sides, then flip and get around the top and a little on the inside to make sure it is all covered.

SONY DSC Give the jars time to dry and cure. I waited overnight. To keep the glue/glitter line really straight and clean, I taped it off with painters tape before adding the glue. Warning: The tape took some of the shine off of the metallic paint when I removed it. It wasn’t noticeable on the aqua and pink jars though.

SONY DSC Brush on the Craft Bond adhesive in thin coat. I found it worked best to work in one section at a time instead of trying to cover the whole jar before the glue dried.

SONY DSC Sprinkle the glitter onto the glue. Go ahead and lay it on thick so it covers really well. Be very generous with the glitter!

SONY DSC Elmer’s glitter kit came with this little funnel that is perfect for putting the extra glitter back in the jar for future use!

SONY DSC All glittered up!

    I have some soup cans…I wonder if I could do the same thing? They are super cute and I love the babies breath. Thanks for the idea.

    I love this idea. They look so simple yet not cheap looking. One question…did you use a whole tube of glitter on each jar or was there some left over?
    Thanks for sharing!

    I think they would look more professional if some ribbon or twine was wrapped around the grooves at the top to disguise the fact that this started as a jar.
