Ok so I have been looking for ways to decorate glass jars to fill with gifts for Christmas this year and I came across this DIY glitter mason jar.

Ok so this honestly wasn't quite what I had in mind when I started looking around online for awesome ways to decorate jars but I just can't help thinking this is really nice and pretty.
In fact I know a little girl that would really appreciate this to keep things in, like her pencils and paint brushes!
So how to do this is quite simple, it is suggested to spray a paint base coat of your colour choice but you can leave it plain if you want to.
If you paint the glass jar then let it dry first, then paint a layer of glue on the jar. Put the jar on newspaper and then sprinkle glitter over the glue.
Rather sprinkle the glitter over than roll the jar over the glitter because it can cause flat sections and be uneven.
When you are finished tap the glass a bit against the newspaper so that the looser glitter comes off.
Leave it to dry for a few hours then lightly brush the glitter with a dry paint brush to remove any more loose glitter pieces.
Then you must give it a top coat to finish it off. You can use any top gloss spray. Give it at least 3 coats to prevent the glitter from coming off.
