When you are a crafter, you see opportunity in every object - especially glass jars! I haven't exactly jumped on the mason jar craze, but I do love jars with different shapes and curves. Not only do they add a sense of beauty to a space, but can also be very functional. I gathered up the empty jars in my house and made a fun collection, yes, even a mason jar too! I used Collage Pauge, leftover Tulip One-Step Dye, and Tulip Fashion Glitter! Click below to see my full tutorial with lots of pictures!
– clean and dry glass jars
This is a great project if you have leftover mixed dye. Store it in a sealed container because you can use it for this project. you can also use the dye powder from the bottle. You want to add a bit of the dye already mixed to a about 1/4 cup of Collage Pauge Glossy. Mix thoroughly.
This is what they will look like. I was worried, I was like, "Pastels! Nooo!" But hang on, the liquid dries clear, creating the stained glass look.
Pour it around the inside top of the jar. This one, I made purple and added translucent glitter to the mix. Once you pour it, then roll the jar around so it it completely covered.
Set up a place where you can set the jars upside down so the liquid can drip out, you want only a thin layer left in the jar. Let dry completely.
Add the Tacky Dots and glitter!
And there you have it! Aren't they pretty? I love the how the sun shines through them. You could also wrap the tops with wire and hang them!
