I’ve been remiss. I’ve kept you in the dark.


Can you forgive me?


I promised a tutorial on the sequin mason jar vase I shared last week.  You know the post, right? The one where I ran a giveaway for a case of amazing blue Ball mason jars …



… and before I get to the ‘how to’ part of this post, how about I finish up that piece of unfinished business.  Because the giveaway is closed.  A winner has been chosen.  And notified by email.  And I have her address (congratulations Nancy T.) and her prize should be winding its way to her soon …


Now, I told you this project was super simple, right?  Like super duper simple.  So don’t blink …


How To Make Mason Jar Vase with Sequins

Step 1:  Take some Mod Podge gloss and brush some into the bottom and around the top of the mason jar …




Step 2.  Dump in sequins, put on the top and shake …




Step 3.  Let dry overnight.  Style with flowers …



Now, keep in mind that Mod Podge is, at its core, glue.  So you can’t put water in these vases.

Centerpiece Ideas for Weddings Using Mason Jars

I found a pin on Pinterest that said you can just add water and sequins to your vase.  They claimed some some would float and some would sink.  So I tried it.  And, for this project, I can tell you it didn’t work as envisioned  No, I can do one better.  I can show you …




See?  Okay, some did float.  Some did sink.  But the overall effect was a mess …


I may need to pin it to a pin-fail Pinterest boardSmile

    Couldn’t you use an epoxy or silicone glue on the inside so it’s water tolerant? Just wondered if you’ve experimented with that?
