Sea Glass Mason Jar

Today we are going to make a Sea Glass Mason Jar.  It can be used for many different occasions.  Let's get started!

Popsicle Stick
1" Foam Brush
Elmer's Glue
Icing Coloring (Your Choice)
Paper Plate
Clear Spray Paint (sealer)

Optional Supplies:
Sea Glass
Shell (drilled)

First you need to gather your supplies.

Now take your paper plate and pour about 1" in diameter of Elmer's glue onto the plate.

Take your popsicle stick and dip it into your icing coloring.  Scrape one side of the popsicle stick on your icing coloring bottle.  Mix your dipped popsicle stick with the Elmer's glue until one color is formed.

Take the lid off of your mason jar and start painting your glue mixture onto your jar with the foam brush.  Paint the entire mason jar and let it dry upside down.

 Once dried spray your jar with a clear spray paint.  That way you will seal the jar and prevent the sea glass look from chipping.  At this point you can wrap the bottom of the lip with jute and add a sea glass or shell for a more decorative look.

And you are done! 

*Please keep away from direct sunlight to prevent the sea glass look from fading*

Have a Craftastic Day!
