Bearfoot Gypsy Soap Co. uses Mason Jars for Whipped Body Butters, Candles and more. Why? Because they are reusable! I love mason jars because you can use them for just about anything: Organizing, Decor, Drinking Glasses, and yes you can reuse them for canning jams and jellies as well.
In this Tutorial we will be making Glitter Dipped Jars. These are so cute and super easy to make. You can even make them with your kids. Lets get started!
Here's what you'll need:
Place your painters tape about half way from the top, all the way around the jar. Press the tape down firmly with your finger tip to ensure it is tightly sealed. Paint an even coat of Mod Podge around the bottom half of the jar. Be sure not to paint to much on or it will drip.
Holding your jar at the rim, gently roll the bottom half in glitter.
Then set your jar upside down to dry. ( I let mine dry for 1 hour )
Once your jar is dry enough to work with, gently remove the tape and add a new line of tape 1/4 in above the old line. This will give a thin line with a frosted glass effect. Next, paint on a top coat of Mod Podge. Again doing an even coat, being sure not to over do it, so that it doesn't drip. This will seal on the glitter so that it doesn't rub off onto everything it touches.
Remove the tape and set it upside down to dry again.
Give the jar 24 hours to dry. Then you can fill it with whatever you need organized.
