DIY Glitter Rimmed Mason Jars. An easy DIY project.
We’re getting our GLITTER on today. Literally, it’s in all the places. BUT these jars are so gorgeous I’m going to ignore the fact that I now look like a disco ball.
They are absolutely perfect for not only the holidays (these will so be gracing my New Year’s Eve Table) but I can even see these for birthdays, weddings, engagement parties okay pretty much for anything and everything that you want to add a little sparkle to. You do want to sparkle don’t you?

- Cardboard Boxes or Tarps
HOW TO MAKE DIY GLITTER RIMMED MASON JARS:
1. Make sure your mason jars are clean and dry.
2. PAINT OUTSIDE in a well ventilated area. Place jars upside down on a cardboard box. Spray jars with desired color metallic paint. Allow jars to dry completely. Apply a second coat if necessary.
3. Using a paint brush, apply Mod Podge to bottom 1/4 of the jar. Sprinkle glitter over Mod Podge. Gently shake jar to remove excess glitter. Allow jars to dry completely. Do NOT use tape when painting Mod Podge onto jars. It will remove the paint.
4. When jars are completely dry, add water and fresh flowers.
NOTE – These jars are for decorative purposes only.
I always have mason jars lying around the house, yes we even drink out of them. Southern law and all. I love to re-purpose, call it frugal, cheap, whatever, so this easy DIY project is right up my alley so I used pint sized mason jars with fresh flowers to this project. I could see these with just about size jar you want to use. I’m thinking of making smaller ones, using jelly jars, and adding FLOATING tea lights. Nice right? I decided to go with GOLD and SILVER to keep it festive for the holidays. But because you know how much I love options, I think they would be gorgeous using pale pastel paints and glitters or even BLACK. Yes, most definitely black.
We would love to see them!
