The candy corn was my inspiration for this project.  Even though I don’t care to eat them, I always thought that there was something whimsical about the colors.  It reminds me of Halloween, but it’s not scary or frightening.  So, I decided to make a glittered candy corn Mason jar.

Materials:

Instructions:

I started with the center orange stripe on purpose to save time.  I knew once that the orange was dry; I would be able to apply both the gold and white without waiting for one to dry.  Using painter’s tape, I taped of my center stripe and then covered the entire center with glue using the paint brush. I sprinkled the glitter all the way around the jar.  Tap off the excess glitter and put it back in your container.

While the glue was still wet, I pulled off the painter’s tape. I allowed it to dry completely.

Next, I taped off the lower half of the orange stripe to begin glittering the gold stripe using the same technique above.

Remove the tape while it is still wet.

Repeat the process for the final white stripe.

Once the glue was dry, I gave the vase a light tap over the garbage can to remove any excess glitter. Then, I added water and fresh flowers!

I loved how it turned out.  I think these would make a great homemade hostess gift during all those parties over the holidays!
