Instructions

Step 1
Clean Mason jar(s) with soap and water before painting. Let dry.

Step 2
Apply paint to the inside of the Mason jar(s) either by using your brush or by pouring paint into the inside of the glass and carefully swirling your jar around until it is fully covered. Set upside down to remove excess paint.

Step 3

Once the jar(s) are completely dry, section off the area to be glittered with painter’s tape on the outside of the glass.

Step 4
Apply Mod Podge® to area to be glittered and sprinkle with glitter while wet. Be generous with the glitter to ensure full coverage. Shake off loose glitter and let dry completely.

Step 5
Slowly peel off painter’s tape.

Tips

For a matte finish, paint the outside of the Mason jar instead of the inside. May take a few coats. Let dry in between coats.
