I forgot to show you one of my fav items I made for the Kiddo’s Party this last weekend!
We decided that red and aqua would be our colors… so after seeing how The Traveling Thrifter used modge podge and food coloring to color glass… I thought aqua’fying some glass jars and bottles would be a super cute addition to their party!
It’s SO simple. I used some of the mason jars I still had leftover from the Pottery Barn mason jar candleholders I had made and other random jars that I had washed well.
To cover 5 jars I only needed 1/8 cup of modge podge.
Did you know you can make modge podge?
Just mix equal parts of white school glue and water… SUPER SIMPLE & so much cheaper, especially if you purchase your glue right now with back-to-school sales!
So… once you have your modge podge (store or homemade) add the food color of choice. Add a few drops at a time and mix… add more till you get the color you want.
Then you just brush it on the outside of your jars. I used a foam brush.
I put them upside down on some kid cups. This made it easier to paint on and the perfect place for the jars to dry. The closest jar in the photo above had just been brushed, where the one behind had already started to dry. I did 2 thin coats.
I LOVE the results!
I think this bottle turned out to be my favorite. It’s a Rose’s grenadine bottle… I love my Roy Roger!
Such a pretty aqua… just perfect for the party!
I used some of the bottles to hold the utensils with a bit of red tissue paper.
Such a fun project with endless possibilities… any glass… any color!
