DIY Glitter Geode Jars

DIY Home Decor

Hi there all you bliss seekers! Today I have a fabulous & girly diy project to get your week started. As you know, Mason Jars are awesome not just for canning your fall harvest but also as super cheap vestals of organization that can be decorated for any decor. Now its my turn to show you my version of the mason jar! (My jars aren’t actually Masons — they are wide mouthed jars that I picked up from my Goodwill but you could do this with a mason jar).

 

Supplies

  • Clear Jars with lids
  • Fine Glitter
  • Geodes
  • Mod Podge
  • Super Glue
  • Sponge Brush

Step 1

Pour a little bit of Mod Podge into a small cup. Add some water (you want to keep the glue to water ratio about 2:1) Stir this until well mixed.

The reason you mix your glue with water is to ensure that it dries super clear.

Step 2

Apply a thin layer of glue to the inside of the jar with your sponge brush.

Step 3

Throw some glitter in the jar.

Gently turn the jar to get an even application of glitter. You can also put the lid on and shake the jar to evenly apply the glitter.

I also did another jar in lilac glitter…

Step 4

Time to gather your geodes!

Figure out how you want to arrange the geodes onto the lid of the jars. Then put some super glue on the bottoms of the geodes and attach to the lids.

Allow the glue to dry.

 

Optional Step.

Once the glue has completely dried you can add a second layer of glue on top of the glitter to keep it from coming off onto whatever you place in the jar.

Until next time!

    I love this idea! What do you like to store in them? I feel like they’d be great for crystals or other shiny things :)

    Always, Hunter

      Thank you! I will probably end up storing loose jewelry in them. If you want to do food or something you might want to do the glitter on the outside but really you can put anything in them :)
