If you look on Pinterest there are lots and lots of projects with mason jars. Painting, Mod Podge, Glitter, the list goes on and on.
I have been saving my empty jars instead of throwing them into the Recycle Bin. I've wanted to try a few of these projects.
|Some of my stash.|
|They are a great size for storing things in.|
The project I found was from Debbie at DebbieDoos.com. The first step is Mod Podge. You are going to coat your glass vase, jar, or whatnot with 2 coats of Mod Podge letting it dry completely in between coats.
|Completely dry after 2 coats of Mod Podge.|
Side Note: I hoarding plastic containers especially lids. They make great paint trays and after a few uses I just let the paint dry and recycle them.
Using a foam brush I painted each vase two coats once again letting completely dry in between coats.
|You can see on the tangerine vase I tested the dryness of the dye with my finger.|
|The color deepen with the 2nd coat.|
I am keeping the vases and putting them aside for now. Hopefully I will be inspired to pick them up again and try something else.
