Well, here we are, only 7 days away! Today we mark off the halfway point with an awesome little craft from my favorite girls over at A Beautiful Mess....GLITTER JARS!! You know I love me some glitter, and these sparkly little numbers are just the most fantastic DIY project for a lazy weekend day in late winter. See for yourself . . .
Valentine's Day Glitter Jars
Supplies You Will Need:
~ Craft Glue
~ Paint brushes
~ Mason Jars
1. Paint various designs on the inside of the jar with the glue. I chose to paint large hearts, stripes, and a solid gold for my three jars. Polka dots would also be cute!
2. Pour a bit of glitter into the jar to coat where you've painted on the glue, then tap the jar upside down onto a piece of paper a few times to remove the excess.
4. After you've finished the designs and the glue has dried, coat the entire inside of the jar with a thick layer of glue and allow to dry for at least 24 hours. This forms a "seal" over the glitter and keeps it from flaking off.
5. Fill the jars with your favorite Valentine's treats! Note: Kind of obvious, but even though the glitter won't flake off I'd still recommend only using treats that are individually packaged.
A touch more fun . . .
And my absolute favorite? The most awesome make-up brush holder EVER!!
Ahhh, some girls (and guys) were just born with glitter in their veins:)
