Just a few of the jars I've collected over the years.
How to Tint Glass Jars
I save all my glass jars, they come in handy for decorating and organizing all kinds of things. Did you know you can tint glass jars to dress up your decor? Learn this simple trick for adding beautiful transparent color to glass jars.
T tint glass jars, start with glass stain and add a few drops to the inside of a clean jar.
Slowly swirl the gel around the inside of the jar until it is evenly coated.
Hold the jar upside down and let any excess drip out onto a paper towel. Then let the jar sit upside down until it is dry. You can also stand the jar right side up but some of the remaining tint may pool in the bottom.
There is no need to bake or cure these jars any further once they are dry.
These tinted glass jars are a fun way to dress up my decor. I like the pastel colors for a spring centerpiece or mantle. Blue looks lovely with white and silver winter decor too.
Since the inside of the jars are tinted they cannot be used as vases, no water allowed! But you can add decorative items to the inside.
