Whenever I get glass jars that have any interesting shapes or indentations, I save them for projects like this: Tinted Mason Jars. With a little Mod Podge and food colouring, you can turn an ordinary object into something special. I found this project via Pinterest on the Momtastic Canada blog.
- glass jas
- Mod Podge (gloss)
- food colouring
- baking tray and parchment paper
I used what I had in the supply closet, so I substituted matte Mod Podge, but I found the results quite nice nonetheless.
Basically, you have to mix food colouring and Mod Podge and coat the inside of a glass jar. After letting the paint drip out, bake it to finish the drying process, and enjoy your handiwork!
I filled me new blue jars with sea-themed potpourri I had kicking around that just so happened to coordinate with the food colouring. I loved the effect, but next time I will bake it longer to see if I can reduce the amount of Mod Podge that collects at the bottom of the glass. I might add more drops of food colouring because the effect is very light.
