Glitter Jars

When I saw these witchy jars and these glittered pumpkin jars and these Christmas Ornaments I knew I had to try something glittery. 

I went to the dollar store and grabbed a few glass candle votives. I already had glitter and some Pledge Floor Finish although mine was for wood floor. It seemed to work well. 

 (As a side note, I love the floor finish for the wood floor. Our floor was looking pretty worn, but we don't have the money to refinish it. I bought this and thought I'd give it a try. I LOVE IT! It puts a nice protective finish on it that dries in 30 minutes. Our floor looks new again.)

To find out how to make the glitter jars, click on the links above.  They each have a detailed description of how to make them. The ornaments link even has a video.

A few tips that I found out the hard way:  I thought I'd try a plate using this method. That was a total flop. Stick with a jar, vase, or cup of some kind, it's easier to cover with the pledge. I also tried a very light pastel colored glitter and I didn't like it as well because it was harder to see the glitter.

After I made these I just had to make a few more. I found some smaller candle jars around the house  and let my kids each pick a color of glitter to make their own. The pink one is a larger glitter. It gives it a different look but I still like it.

Here's what I decided to do with the plate that didn't work out. I washed the glitter off of it before it dried.

And I spray painted the back of it.
