How to Make Glittered Mason Jar Lanterns
clean, empty glass jars
1" flat artist's brush
pillar or flameless candles
Apply Glue to Jars
Use a 1" flat artist's brush to apply clear glue to the inside of the jar. Brush the glue on heavier towards the bottom of the jar and lighter towards the top. Feather edges of the glue towards the top and leave about 1/4 of the top of jar free of glue.
Apply Glitter to Glue
Immediately sprinkle glitter onto wet glue using a spoon (Image 1). Roll jar around to allow glitter to coat all of the areas where glue was applied (Image 2). Pour excess glitter back into container to be reused.
When ready to use lanterns, insert candles and light. Use outdoors, only in dry/clear weather. Never leave a candle unattended. Tip: To use jars for another purpose, simple soak in water to remove the glue and glitter.
