Way back in January, it was my sister’s 30th birthday and she asked me to organize her party. I decided on a gold theme with splashes of hot pink – here’s a look at the party bags
if you missed that post.
a selection of glass jars - I used two sizes of mason jar and then a smaller hexagonal jam jar
old paint brush
low tack masking tape
Time: 1-2 hours plus drying time
1. Remove all the lids and sticky labels.
2. Wash the jars to remove dust and the sticky residue from the labels. Allow to air dry.
3. Set up the area where you are going to spray by laying out newspaper and covering anything that might get sprayed. I used an old paper bag lined with newspaper to create a little spraying station. (Ideally spray outside or with all your doors and windows open. The spray paint can be pretty potent stuff!!)
4. Lightly spray the jars. Allow to dry and then spray again until each jar is completely covered. You may have to repeat this cycle a few times.
5. Let the jars dry for at least 24 hours.
6. Decide how much of the jars your are going to cover in glitter and carefully mark in pencil. I decided to cover the bottom third of each jar with glitter.
6. Using your pencil marks as a guide, wrap masking tape around each jar above the mark.
7. Brush on PVA glue and sprinkle with glitter. I did one side at a time and then moved on to the next jar. Repeat until you have covered each section of the jars.
8. Leave the jars to dry and then carefully remove the masking tape. Touch up if you need to.
9. Add water and flowers to create your centre piece.
