Admit it, we’re all fans of mason jars. They’re just so cute and so convenient. Since I also have an unconditional obsession with anything glittery, I had to reunite both of them to make this super cute DIY Glitter Mason Jar!
This DIY is super easy to do and it is perfect to decorate your desk or selves. Follow those simple steps to make your own Glitter Mason Jar.
What you need for a DIY Glitter Mason Jar:
- A Mason Jar
- Masking Tape
- Glue Spray
- Bright Varnish Spray
I do not recommend the use of fast grab glue for this DIY, it makes things complicated (Yes I used it once, for another DIY with glitters, and regretted it ! I almost had to start over !).
Make sure to cover your workspace with plastic bags or newspapers before you begin.
I used multicolored glitters for this DIY, but you choose the color that you want.
Let’s start !
Wrap the masking tape around the top of jar, right where the lid goes, in order to be still able to close the jar when the DIY is finished. If you do not wish to be ale to close your jar, you can skip this step and put glitters on this part of your jar. But you better be sure about that, because there will be no turning back once you’ve started to put glitters on it !
Spray glue all over your Mason Jar.
Sprinkle your glitters onto the glue. This step needs to be done quickly, otherwise the glue will dry and the glitters won’t stick to the jar.
Once you’re done sprinkling the glitters, put the jar in that position (photo above) and wait for about 10 minutes. Then do step 2 and 3 again to make the glitters more opaque. Wait 10 more minutes.
Once again, spray glue all over your jar to make sure your glitters are strongly sealed. Wait 10 minutes. (Redo steps 3 and 4)
Spray varnish all over the jar. Wait for about 30 minutes, then do it again. Wait 2 hours, to make sure it’s completely dry.
Peel the masking tape off carefully, make sure you’re not pulling off the glue at the same time.
Your Glitter Mason Jars are done!
