Sea Glass Jar DIY

Crafts 11.28.15
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?

    Would covering the outside with Outdoor Modpodge make them waterproof?

    Love that idea Brenda! I loved decorating for my wedding. You can do really pretty stuff for very inexpensive if you are willing to get creative and put some elbow grease into it! :)

    Sallie is right, Donna, they can't be washed. But the inside can be rinsed out. I just rinse out the inside after each use. :)

    Wouldn't be able to get the outside wet because it is not waterproof.

    Love the idea. Looking for fun ideas for my niece's wedding reception. I have some inexpensive vases we are planning on mixing in with some of the more elegant crystal. Might be fun to use food coloring in her colors to add pops of color.
