Sea Glass Jar DIY

I creating these jars using a homemade modpodge (2 parts glue to 1 part water) mixed with food coloring, water and a little dishsoap. Took me all of about 10 minutes and I LOVE the way they came out. Placed them in my kitchen window and it makes doing the dishes a lot more enjoyable! ;)

    Ashleigh B I love these, you have a reply on your blog from someone who said to use white glue on wood to give your painted surface a crackle effect. Have you tried this? And since the glue is...glue, what happens if your glued surface gets wet at some time?

    Ashleigh B, could these be sealed with a clear coat of acrylic spray like Krylon?
  • GREAT IDEA--NOW IF I ONLY HAD A WINDOW OVER MY SINK!!

    ok I finally gave these a shot... will see how the look tomorrow when they are dry....
  • Blue is such a pretty color. With the flowers tucked in each jar, they bring so much color and life to the window.

    WOW I love this. My son is getting married next year and they are using mason jars and sunflowers...could be painted in a cobalt blue to match their colors. Definitely going to give this a try.

    What a fabulous idea. Love these! Absolutely love the color you used. I keep leftovers in jars....so much nicer than plastic. And the food keeps better also.

    Love this idea. I tried it on some cobalt blue bottles and it turned out great. Color comes through but now they are frosted. Beautiful!
  • Wow, Ashleigh! These are beautiful!

    Do you just use a paintbrush to get the color on, or a sponge or something else? I am wanting to try this for some of my spice jars (on the outside of course) and am not sure how to go about it. Thank you!

    They turned out beautifully. Thanks for sharing how you make 'home-made' modge! Very pleased to have found that information.
  • I am originally from Mountain Home and two of my sisters live there also..This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing.
