Hello friends. I cannot express how happy I am to be here sharing this post with you today; not because of the post itself (although I think you're going to like it) but because I am finally over this terrible flu that I had. Unless I could have crafted and typed curled up in the fetal position it wasn't going to happen. Anyways, enough of that- onto the good stuff: today's craft.
Whether hosting a holiday party (this works for Christmas, New Years, anything) or giving gifts to the neighbors (a first for us this year), this craft will surely fit your schedule, budget and plans:
All you do to make these is cover a mason jar in paint (I used white) and then cover in glitter, tapping off the excess. That's it! If your glitter is still really loose, cover it with a sealer so that it does not get everywhere (and boy, does glitter get EVERYWHERE).
As you can see from the picture on the left, this would make a totally cute holiday drinking cup; just add a festive straw and you are good to go!
As for the picture on the right, fill the jar with baked goodies like candy, chocolate covered pretzels or cookies, add a lid, gift tag and bow (love that contrasting red) and head on over to your friend or neighbor's house for a gift they wont be forgetting.
Do you have any other uses for these glittered jars? What colors would you make them in?
