Oh My….. we couldn’t stop making these lanterns~ They are so addicting and easy to make.  The glass is just a simple mason jar.  The bold color is Mod Podge sheer color and the stencils are the new Mod Podge Rocks stencils.  They can be used over and over and the patterns are super cute!  Of course we had to add a bunch of trims and faux diamond ribbon.

Video How To Use Sheer Colors

Instructions

Always begin by cleaning and drying your mason jar.

mod podge sheer colors

Swirl Method: Pour Sheer Color Mod Podge into the jar. Swirl the Sheer Color around the inside until it covers all the sides. Turn the jar upside down into a paper cup and let the excess drizzle out of the jar. Allow it to sit for 10 hours. Turn the jar over and allow it to dry until the color is clear. Use a craft knife to trim off any excess around the rim.

Brush-On Method: Apply sheer color to the outside of the jar with a paintbrush. Apply as many coats as you wish until your desired color is reached. Allow for dry time in between coats.

Place a Mod Podge stencil across the front of a jar. Spounce Mod Podge gloss over the stencil. Remove the stencil, poof the glitter over the stenciled area. Allow to dry and brush off excess glitter with a dry paintbrush. Repeat for the other side. Wash the stencil, reattach to the carrier sheet and use again.

Attach glitzy trims to the vases and lanterns using craft glue. The jars that are made with the brush-on technique are suitable for filling with water or candles. The swirl technique is best used with silk flowers, glow sticks or battery operated candles.

Tip: When glittering, glitter over a file folder. You can fold the file up and use it as a funnel for recycling glitter.

Enjoy! xoxoxo

DIY Cell Phone Case Covers with Mod Podge, Mod Melts and Glitter

You can make a customized cell phone case with Mod Podge, Mod Melts and a little glitter!  I love using papers that are made for insta-scrapbooking because they are usually sized pretty good and they have sayings and prints.

Trim the paper to fit on top of the cell phone case.  You can either trim it to fall below the camera hole or you can trim a hole for the camera hole.  Just don’t cover the hole with paper or you can’t take any pics. 🙂

Coat the back of the paper with Mod Podge gloss.
