Hi, it's Courtney from Crafts by Courtney. Today I'm sharing one of the easiest projects I've ever done.
I've been browsing my Coastal Living Magazines and seeing all these beautiful blue vases. I really wanted to try to recreate one for my craft room. I went to my local craft store and found bottles of Mod Podge Sheer Colors. They had the perfect tint of blue I wanted to use.
My friend gave me these cute little jars for my birthday. I thought they would be perfect to give them that coastal makeover using the sheer tint.
- Glass jar
- Mod Podge sheer colors
- Decorative rope
- Paint brush
For this project you can use whatever kind of glass jar you want. I just loved this one so much and thought it would be perfect to store some of my craft supplies in.
Step 1 – Prep Glass Jar
Step 2 – Add Tint to Jar
Now the easy part, adding your paint! I went over the whole jar with my sheer color tint and let dry 30 minutes.
Quick Tip: I tested the tint out on another jar using a foam brush. I the finish wasn't as smooth as I wanted. This jar I used a paint brush and the results were a lot better.
Step 3 – Add Final Coat of Tint
Step 4 – Finishing Touches
Now let's finish up our project by adding our decorative shell to the front!!
These are going to look great in my new craft room! I have a ton of blue mason jars to decorate around them. I really like how the starfish looks on the front of it!
