Glass-Jar Moroccan Lanterns

 I love these jars - I can see them all over my mantel, on my table, or what a great gift they would make :)

For original blog post on these - Scroll to the bottom of this post.

  • old glass jars (spaghetti jars, jam jars or any plain glass jar will work)
  • gold dimensional puff paint
  • glass paint (Delta or Pebeo Vitrea glass paint are great options)
  • paintbrush
  • wire (optional, for hanging lanterns)
1. Remove labels and any glue residue from the glass jars and allow them to dry completely.
2. Apply the gold dimensional paint in various patterns. You can use the applicator tip to create small stud-like dots, draw various decorative patterns or push around the paint to create solid areas of gold. Let dry.

3. Pour a small amount of glass paint inside the jar and use your paintbrush to drag the paint up the sides of the jar, coating all of the jar’s interior. Let dry.

4. Your lanterns are now ready to enjoy indoors or out! Simply fill them with candles or add loops of fine-gauge wire to the tops for easy hanging.

Oh, I love this project! I see so many of the food companies changing their food jars from glass to plastic that I've started hoarding the glass ones. I'm so happy to have something beautiful to do with them--hubby keeps threatening to throw them out! Is the "gold dimensional puff paint" made for glass? Do you know who the manufacturer is?

She used Tulip brand dimensional paint in gold (their Metallics series). I don't know how permanent it is on the glass yet...
