Vintage Color Tinted Glass Jars

I love being inspired by all things VINTAGE, especially DIY’s. Not all of us are blessed with actual vintage items, so when we’re able to make things that look like there vintage - there’s no better feeling.

Today's a Happy Day my Friends because we're going to be doing something a little different.

If you love vintage and making things - this is just for you!

I was pretty amazed when I stumbled onto this post and knew that I absolutely had to share it with you.

Our materials are simple things...

– empty glass jars
– mixing bowls
– newspaper
– paper towels
– wax paper
– mod podge
– food coloring
– stir stick/small spoon
– oven

Step 1 – Mix Mod Podge, water and food coloring in a small bowl. If you are doing just one small jar, I came to the conclusion that about 1 TBSP of mod podge with a little less than 1/2 TBSP of water is a good mix. I did a lot of jars at once, so I started making larger batches and would add slightly more of different color with each jar to see how it would change the finished look.

Step 2 – prep a baking sheet or pan by lining it with newpaper.

Step 3 – pour your mixture into your jar and rotate it around to completely cover the inside of it. Have paper towel or another jar ready when you get to the mouth of the jar. Make sure every spot of the jar is covered.

Step 4 – Set your covered jar upside down on your prepared baking sheet.
Repeat these steps if you’re doing more than one jar and change up your color mixture slightly, if desired.

Step 5 – Let them sit upside down like this for about an hour. In the meantime, prepare another baking sheet by lining it with wax paper.

Step 6 – After an hour, turn your jars right side up and place them on your clean wax paper lined baking sheet. Place the tray with your jars right side up in a warm oven (225˚) for about 45 min. If you notice streaks, leave them in longer.

Step 7 – Remove from oven and let cool.

Pretty simple right?

So I was thinking about adding some winter flowers, pine and pine cones to our new favorite jars. Mix artificial flowers in with real pine for a gorgeous piece of decor for your home this winter.
