Icicle Mason Jars





Introduction: Icicle Mason Jars

With all the hoopla about Mason Jars, and the fact that I just plain Love Them, I decided to give them a try with a twist of my own.

Step 1:

Gather your supplies.
For this project you will need:

clean sponge
Mat Modge Podge
Clear Glitter
Wire cutters
Sand/Decorative Salt
candle of choice

Step 2:

Follow these easy steps to make the Icicle Mason Jar.

1.  Coat half the jar using the mat Mod Podge.  Use a damp sponge in a dappling technique for a full even coverage.  (Only do half so it doesn't dry to quick)

2.  Sprinkle clear glitter over the wet Mod Podge.

3.  Repeat same steps over other half of jar.  

4.  Allow to dry completely.

5.  Add another layer of just the Mod Podge.  No glitter this time.  

6.  Allow this to dry completely.

7.  Attach a wire hanger around lip of jar.

8.  Fill with sand/salt, place in candle of choice, light and enjoy.

    It kills me how many people say Modge Podge instead of Mod Podge. lol EVERYONE says it wrong.

    I'm having trouble making it look even...when I try to spread the Modge Podge out so that it's not too thick, it ends up making lines. Once the glitter is sprinkled on, those lines still show through. Any tips?? I'm making these for my wedding so maybe I'm trying to be too perfectionist-ic :), but I want to get it right!

    Thank you!

    Try using a sponge cut into about a 3x3 square slightly wet. Work by dabbing up and down in the jar with the mod podge and blend edges while wet. You have to work fairly quickly cover half the jar sprinkle and the do the other half lwhile wet to nlend it. Hope this helps.

    Thank you! I will try that today! :) I hope they end up looking like yours!

    How did you make the hanging wire? Wish there were photo steps of that included. Looks great!

    I bought a "roll" of soft black wire in my local craft stores floral section. It is sturdy but easy to bend. I just made a circle around the neck leaving about an inch to twist, then tucked in the ends. Before I made the ring tight I cut another piece to make the hanger portion in the length I wanted and made a j hook on both ends to tuck into the ring around the neck. I tightend the neck then, and then twisted the ends of the hanger to make it secure. I hope this helps.
    I will include more step by step pictures next time...I'm a newbie at this.

    Yes, that did help. thank you so much.

    Very nice. What brand of glitter did you use? I've been looking at Art Institute's Transparent line.

    Not sure of the brand...anything translucent should work marvelously!

    Should look good when applied to those popular Solar garden light moon jars!
