My original glitter dipped jars were so popular that I decided to do a Christmas version this year. I used red spray paint and paired it with the Martha Stewart red glitter. You could easily do this in green as well or even blue for Hanukkah. Scroll down for the tutorial.
Christmas Glitter Dipped Mason Jars
What you need:
Krylon Spray Paint (Glossy Red)
Red Martha Stewart Glitter
1. Turn your jar upside down on a piece of cardboard and spray your jar with spray paint. Stand at least 12" away from the jar as you spray. Don't worry if it's not totally covered. Let it dry a bit then spray some more.
2. Let dry for 1 hour (if it's cold) and 30 minutes if it's hot.
3. Once your jar is dry. use a 1" paint brush to brush some Mod Podge on the bottom portion of your jar. Sprinkle with glitter. It's best to do this in sections so your glue doesn't dry. If you want to seal your glitter you can put another coat of Mod Podge over the glitter, but it does take a bit of the glittery "gleam" away.
Notes: Be careful with these jars. Spray paint will chip if scratched and you should not get the outside of the jar wet. These are decorative jars.
Also, to get a perfect straight line on your jar you can lay it down on the table and place a piece of paper over the jar and you can use that line to guide you. Do not use tape as it will pull off the spray paint.
