Who vows to get more organized with each coming new year? I know I do! Seems to be at the top of my resolution every year and I’m sure this year it will be more of the same. But, in efforts to get motivated I decided to start with a simple project to help get my office supplies organized. I painted and added glitter to a wide mouth mason jar to add a little pizzazz to my pens, pencils and scissors. Follow along as I show you how to make these glitter mason jars.
Dipped Glitter Mason Jars Supplies:
- Darice Silver Glitter
- 2 Darice Foam Brushes
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Wide Mouth Mason Jars
- Washi Tape or Painter’s Tape
- Craft Paint (I used black)
Step four: Remove tape from the glitter mason jars immediately following step three. If you find that your tape pealed some of the paint off your jar you can touch it up. That happened to me and it still came out fine.
Step five: Once your glitter is completely dry, put a coat of Mod Podge Gloss over the glitter and allow to dry. This will keep a minimum amount of glitter from rubbing off as you handle the glitter mason jars.
*Note: Be sure you use Mod Podge GLOSS finish for this last part. Once it’s dry your glitter will still be sparkly. Feel free to cover the whole jar in Modge Podge. Allow a few hours to dry completely.
These fun striped glitter mason jars will make such a cute accessory on your desk. You can make as many as you want and separate your office supplies by writing instruments, scissors, paper punches, etc.
