Pint or quart size mason jar (I used pint-sized)

Spray Paint (I am using metallic gold, metallic silver, and black, but am only showing gold for this DIY tutorial)

Extra Fine Glitter

Mod Podge

Paint Brush



Step One:

Find a well ventilated area (I painted my mason jars outside). Place your mason jar upside down and spray evenly with spray paint. Make sure to cover entire jar. Let dry for approximately one hour. (It may take more or less time to dry.)

Step Two:

Make sure your mason jar is completely dry, then wrap a piece of paper around top 2/3 of jar and close with a small strip of tape to allow you to have a straight line for you to apply your coat of glitter.

Step Three:

Use your paint brush to paint Mod Podge onto your mason jar. You will need to paint in sections so that the glue does not get tacky or dry before you have a chance to sprinkle on glitter. After you have painted the Mod Podge on the first section sprinkle glitter allover, and then repeat until your desired area is completely covered in glitter. Shake off excess glitter.
