Thrifty Thursday: A Jarring Project.

Apparently since I found this tutorial, this craft has blown the eph up online. There’s a reason, it’s awesome. And SO easy. I decided to make them for my Mommy’s birthday, and I had more left over to make for my deck.

IMG_6569 I picked up a 12 pack of Mason Jars at Wally World for $6.60, and two 4 packs of gel food coloring for $3.60 each, and I had mod podge on hand.



I pour a small amount of Mod Podge on a paper plate, a drop or two of food coloring, dab a paper towel in it and sponge it all over the jars.


It can’t get any easier, but it really was fun. And quickly rewarding, as it dried in about 10 minutes. I just watched Couples Retreat while I waited.


Mine came out more matte than most of the ones I’ve seen, but I like this because I have SO MUCH glass in my house. It’s a refreshing mix now. I just love gray purple and green together:

0623002231 I’ll be using it for vases and candle holders. Or in the above case, both at the same time. I couldn’t make up my mind which way to photograph, so I just went all in. Please don’t try this at home, kids. Well, you can if you DON’T light the candle on the bottom. You’ve been warned.

  1. Love the jars. Question for you though. I have read all of your Thrifty Thursday blogs (love them) and I see where you mention that you spray paint most of your furniture. Wonderful idea because it cuts down on brush strokes etc. Do you stain kill your furniture before spray painting though?
