I haven't forgotten that Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. I just haven't had time to do much crafting or decorating for it yet because I've been getting ready for a bigger love celebration- my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. I promise to share details and projects from the reception next week.
I did manage to squeeze in a few minutes to make this heart glitter jar. I'm sure you've seen other versions around the web with paint or glitter. I had an old mason jar that has some sort of film on it that I can't get off so I though it would be better suited covered in glitter. I decided to add a few heart "cutouts" to it for Valentine's day.
I grabbed my heart punch and some left over vinyl.
I applied the hearts to the jar. (See that gross film? I'm about to cover most of it up. Some of it was from my attempt at cleaning the jar and I was able to get that off later where it was showing through my hearts.)
I covered the jar with Mod Podge and then glitter. When it set for a bit, I applied another coat of Mod Podge over the glitter. Before it completely dried I peeled away the hearts. Now I've got a pretty shiny jar!
Even prettier with candlelight coming through.
