…is surprisingly easy.
What you’ll need:
- a candle jar that’s at the end of its life (I used a Slatkin & Co one from Bath and Body Works and the scent was soooooo last Christmas)
- Mod Podge
To easily and efficiently clean out the candle jar, stick it in the freezer for about an hour. Run a knife along the edge of the candle and then in the centre to break it apart. It should come apart easily. To get the wicks out, pour hot water into the jar and gently use a knife to unstick them. The stickers will wash off easily in hot water.
Clean the jar out thoroughly with dish soap and a sponge. To remove remaining residue, use a cotton ball and nail polish remover. Then it’s time to begin!
Paint the inside of the candle jar (or whichever cylindrical jar you use) with an even coat of Mod Podge.
Watch out for globs because they won’t dry evenly. Once it’s even coated, dump a generous amount of glitter at the bottom and then turn the jar on its side, rolling the glitter around to evenly coat the entire jar. Dump excess glitter onto wax paper/newspaper and funnel back into the glitter container.
And you’re done!
These ones aren’t fully dry yet, but after they dry for several hours (at least 10), you’ll have cute glitter jars to store make up brushes or what have you! I would also recommend spraying a sealant (I use Krylon) to ensure you won’t get glitter all over the stuff inside the jars.
