Glitter Jars

This craft was so easy! The Younger had a great time, and I absolutely love the way they came out :-)

We gathered glass jars that I had been saving for a while, Elmer’s Glue, glitter, and some paint brushes. I mixed some of the glue with water, and off we went!

We ’painted’ the glue to the inside of the jar. I went right up to the top, but The Younger wanted to do a more staggered pattern.

Once that was done, we poured in some glitter. I love white glitter myself, but you can use any color really. (I’m thinking orange for pumpkins when autumn rolls around!).

Once we had enough glitter covering the bottom of the jar, I had her ‘roll’ the jar so it coated the sides.

Here’s how they came out.

I was anxious to try them out, so after they dried I lit a tea candle and threw it into mine. I want to use flameless when the time comes to light them for a longer period of time, but I didn’t have any on hand to try it out. Here it is with an actual flame.
