So I've recently been researching painting glass jars and came across a few people
who've painted their jars to look like sea glass. Very Summery, so I thought
I'd give it a try.
The first method (and the one with the best results) I tried was Mod Podge and Acrylic Paint,
and I chose to use a foam paint brush in hopes to keep the streaks down.
I really liked the matte and milky finish I produced using this method.
Then I decided to take it a step further and hot glue twine around the necks
of a few, or use fiber covered wire to create hanging lanterns.
I think the twine around the necks add to the summery, beachy feel.
I plan to get some sand and small tea light candles for the lanterns.
I cannot wait to see how they look glowing on our back porch in the evening!
I have also recently ordered a glass paint that is supposed to produce the look of an antique blue canning jar!
Can't wait to try it out!
I am a big fan of jars, and if you've read much of my blog you know that my husband and I keep all our glass food jars instead of throwing them out. So I am excited to have found a new use for them!
