Is there anyone else out there that just feels the need to add a little bling everywhere?
A little gold here, a little glitter there?
It just makes everything a little more fun and pretty.
When I made over the porch recently, I realized that these mason jars didn’t quite fit with the fun, colorful vibe going on out there. I wanted to keep them though to use as lanterns for extra lighting at night.
My solution: Bling ‘Em Out.
Now, I have sparkly glitter mason jars.

DIY Glitter Mason Jars
This is a really simple and relatively fast craft project – you guys know I love the fast projects with instant gratification.
- Mason Jars or Glass Jars (Mine came from Kirkland’s about three years ago, but they still have them for a whopping $3 a pop!!! They are here.)
- Glitter in Colors of Your Choice
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush or Paint Brush
Before starting the glittering process, I spray painted the handles of my jars gold. The gold just worked better with the porch. Painting the handles is completely optional.
Grab your FrogTape and wrap a strip of it across the jar diagonally.
I didn’t really do any sort of measurements with the tape. I just wrapped it around the jar as you can see in the photos above. I did keep a straight edge on the side of the jar – that’s why the straight vertical piece of tape is there. You don’t have to do this. You can just keep wrapping the tape if you want to.
Starting at the bottom of the jar where the glass is still visible, use your foam brush or paint brush and apply Mod Podge where you want the glitter.
You don’t need a really thick coat, just an even coverage over the glass. Don’t let the Mod Podge sit too long – this stuff can dry fast on glass. As soon as you have put your Mod Podge on the glass, sprinkle your glitter on the jar, gently tap the excess glitter off and let it sit for five minutes or so.
Remove your tape carefully. If you just want one swirl of glitter – you are done! If you want two swirls (like I did), then you can repeat the first two steps and add another color of glitter.
You can also skip the tape on this one and run your Mod Podge just along the edge of your first glitter color and apply your other glitter there.
Gold glitter just gets me every time and the pink works perfectly on the porch. Who knew putting glitter on mason jars could be so fun?
Any glitter dipped mason jars in your future?
