A while back we did a big stock up trip to Win-Co. I love that store!!! I can buy just about anything I want in bulk & it’s SUPER affordable – all I have to do is bag it all myself. I will totally do that to save what I do by shopping there. So anyhow….while we were there the hubs picked up this MASSIVE jar of pickles. I really wasn’t thrilled about it until I realized that this jar was ginormous. I knew exactly what I would do with it when it was empty. I made this Ocean Waves Glitter Vase for the kid’s bathroom. I have been wanting to spruce things up in there just a bit more & this was exactly what I wanted.
This was 3 tbsp Mod Podge Extreme Glitter & a couple drops of green & blue gloss paint.
I purposely didn’t mix it all together. I wanted a swirly look to it.
I poured it into the jar & swirled it around to coat the bottom & turned it upside-down to drip.
The next day it was a very light blue. I wanted a bit more.
So I did the whole thing again- only instead of paint I used food coloring.
It was a very bright & vivid color. Swirled it around again & turned upside-down to drip.
As you can see it the darker coat didn’t drip all the way down on one part. That’s okay with me- it adds to the ocean feel I have going on in that room. I then baked it for 40 minutes at 250 degrees. Then I allowed it to cool & it was ready to use. That simple. The hardest part was waiting for it to drip. I have issues with wanting it NOW. But I just LOVE the Mod Podge Extreme Glitter. I told you on the last project that I was in love & you would be seeing me use it again & again. I’m already half way through my bottle. I will be sharing later this week how we made the flowers- so stay tuned.
