If you’ve followed my blog, you know that I have been trying to use the supplies around my craft room and not buy any supplies this year. If you’ve seen some of my recent posts, you’ll also know that I am terrible for holding onto “potential” crafting materials that other people may consider trash. This craft includes yogurt jars that my best friend’s mom gave me years ago that have traveled with me from Ohio. I finally thought of the craft they’d be perfect for and it’s just in time for Halloween!
4 Oui yogurt jars
Black acrylic paint
To start, I peeled the sticker off of the jars. They left behind a film so I used some Goo Gone on a rag and rubbed it off. The Goo Gone leaves a little bit of a residue so I washed that off and then used rubbing alcohol to fully clean off the jars.
Once they were clean, I put a layer of black paint on and let it dry fully before adding a second coat. My jars only needed two coats but I did add a couple of touch ups on some thin spots. Next, I flipped them upside down and started on the dripping glitter. To attach the glitter, I mixed a little bit of water in with some white glue. Just enough to thin it down slightly so it would drip over the side of the jar.
I dipped my paintbrush in my watered-down glue and coated the bottom of the jar before dripping it over the sides. The drops still moved kind of slowly so I waited on them to stop and then sprinkled the glitter until it coated them. I let them dry overnight and gently brushed excess glitter off. Now they’re sitting on my table filled with Halloween themed M&Ms! The glitter didn’t come out exactly how I imagined it, but they’re still super cute and fit the season 😊 As always, if you take any fun pictures or videos of any crafts, tag me on Instagram @SmileMakePeopleWonder and use the hashtag #DandelionSmiles.
