Sea Glass Jar DIY

Cleaners 10.14.14
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?

    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!

    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!
