I love mason jars and these sea glass colored jars are so pretty. I see them everywhere at Hobby Lobby, but I never thought about how it was made. After watching Stuff Moms Have Time For’s tutorial on YouTube, made me realize how simple it is with just a couple of materials. This technique to color these jars are simple and perfect for decorating glass to use in the spring for decor. Also, you can use any color and have them as decor for all seasons. This mod podge technique is not for drinkware or to store water in as a container.
- high gloss mod podge
- food coloring
- mason jars
First, pour some mod podge in a container or bowl and mix food coloring. Make sure to use the high gloss mod podge so it looks shiny like glass. Pour the mixture into the glass and slowly coat the glue all over the inside of the jar. Make sure to evenly spread the glue around and take your time to prevent air bubbles.
Next, once the glue is fully coated inside the glass, set it aside on foil and let the excess drip out. Once the mod podge is ready, preheat your oven to 250F. Put the jars upside down on parchment paper and leave them in for an hour. The mod podge should fully harden and dry.
Overall, I think this is a great way to revamp your mason jars or any type of jar that you want to be colored. The downside of this would be not being able to use these as a drink cup since it’s a glue surface inside. The pastel sea glass bottles are great for the springtime, but you can play around with the food coloring.
