Googly Eyed Glass Jars

I love crafting so much I have often thought about writing a 
book chalk full of all my crazy craft ideas. I have so many ideas 
that come randomly in my head and this one is no exception!

Today we are decorating jars, so you'll need an
 ordinary dollar store glass mason jar/container

...and one kitty!

Materials: Glass Jar, Googly Eyes, Ceramic/Glass Paint, and Paintbrushes

I really like these sponge brushes, all materials of which were from the Dollar Store

Step A: Put a dollop of paint on the brush

Step B: Coat the inside of the jar with paint, 
applying as much paint as you need to coat it

Step C: Fully coat the inside of the glass jar with paint

Step D: Paint the inside of the lid too

Step E: Use wet glue to add varying sizes of 
the googly eyeballs around the outside of the jar

Step F: Cover one side, let dry for a few hours, rotate
the jar, then continue until the entire glass is decorated


Bonus: And you can even pop in a tea light transforming your jar stylish glass lamp!

Plus it's the perfect Summer craft to get all
your girlfriends (and guyfriends) together :)

I like the idea of painting the inside-I'll have to try it with one of my glass jars (I have a cabinet full from always saving them).

You are just too cute! Have you ever thought about being a pre school or kindergarten teacher?
