I helped throw a bridal shower last week and had so much fun! The bride-to-be had gold, blush, cream, and emerald as her colors. Beautiful together!

My mom bought some flowers, and I made the glitter vases.

They are super easy to make and turned out quite cute.

1- Take a foam brush and apply modge podge around the bottom of a glass vase. If you don’t trust your free hand (I’m a free hand type of person), or if you like things to be very straight, use painters tape to tape off the vase.

2- Put paper or something down underneath. Then, hold the jar as you sprinkle glitter heavily on top of the modge podge.

3- Allow the modge podge and glitter to dry (ten minutes or so).

Pour excess glitter back into the glitter jar. I used tissue paper to catch the excess glitter but I would recommend something more firm like construction paper or even regular paper.

Add water and flowers and decorate!

I made 6 vases and one full glitter jar in 10 minutes plus 10 minutes of drying time. Plus, they were pretty inexpensive too!

Supplies Needed:

painters tape (optional)

Mason Jar or a glass vase (You can find these at a craft, thrift, or dollar stores for cheap.)

craft paint brush

Modge Podge

I used goldenrod 1/24 tree house studio glitter. But this is a similar glitter.

And of course, flowers and water.
