With Summer barbeque’s and outdoor gatherings in full swing, it’s time to spruce up the backyard. I wanted to create an outdoor centerpiece that would be budget friendly, easy to do yet still beautiful. Since I have an abundance of mason jars, I knew I wanted to create something with one of the jars. I went through my supplies and knew I wanted to create a frosted design look on a jar. I used a Glass Frosting Spray to create a DIY Frosted Glass Vase with minimal effort!
Craft Supplies You’ll Need:
Step 1: Wash and dry glass jar, completely.
Step 2: Start to wrap yarn from top to bottom, repeating in a zig zag pattern. Try to grasp the start and the end of the yarn under the yarn to avoid needing to adhere it to the jar. Continue until you have a nice coverage for the design of the jar.
Step 3: Shake the Glass Frosting Spray for approx two minutes, with vigorous motion.
Step 4: Place the can approximately 8 inches away from the glass, and spray in a continuous motion until it’s completely covered. Allow to dry.
Step 5: After approximately 15 minutes, spray a final coat of the Glass Frosting Spray.
Step 6: After the jar is dry (another 15 minutes), remove the yarn.
Your jar should now look like this:
Fill the jar with large stones or marbles. Then place a flower (real or fake) in the jar as a display.
A few more ideas to use these frosted glasses for:
Fill with a colored water using food coloring and water and place brightly colored daisies inside.
Put battery operated candles inside for illuminated night time center pieces.
Place silverware in these jars to make an eye catching centerpiece!
