Recycle those Glass Jars

Tinted Mason Jar DIY


This project is a great way to re-cycle all of those glass jars you have been saving.  Wait, am I the only one with a glass jar stash?  If you need the perfect jar then have Spaghetti and Meatballs tonight!!

Put 3 tablespoons of Elmers Glue in a small container and add a squirt of Gel Food Coloring.  No I am not using exact amounts because that is how I craft.  By the seat of my pants.  (Try it)


So now just add the mixture to a clear, clean, glass jar and swirl.  Then turn upside down on newspaper to drain out the excess.  Yes it is messy.  Now turn right side up and put into a 200 degree oven for 10 minutes, flip them over and go another 10.  Keep going until the color is sheer.

Nope, they are not waterproof so put you flower into a little ziplock bag and gently lower it inside.  DON’T DRINK OUT OF IT!  (Did I really have to tell you that?)  But what kid hasn’t eaten some glue in his lifetime, or food coloring for that matter.  Still don’t!
