Glitter Mason Jars

I recently bought these adorable pencils at Kate Spade. I usually keep all of my pens and such in a drawer in my desk, but these were so cute I had to display them! 

I couldn't find a cup that I liked, so I decided to take on this mason jar craft I had seen on Pinterest. 

I started with Mod Podge and glitter (my craft essentials). I picked silver glitter because the hardware on my desk is silver. Plus it's so glamorous and looks great with everything! 

Then I masked off the section that I wanted to cover in glitter. I thought about covering the entire jar with glitter, but I like the idea of the subtler bottom half covered instead. I then painted this section with Mod Podge. 

After the Mod Podge I applied the glitter. 

I let the adhesive dry for a few minutes before I removed the masking tape. All in all the craft took me about ten minutes - a quick and easy update for my home office! 

Until next time,


  1. I love this DIY!


  2. I absolutely love that glitter jar, I will definitely have to be making this soon :) And the kate spade pencils, are perfect! :)

    1. You should! It was so easy and quick, and such a good pay off!

  3. I have all the craft supplies, so I'll definitely have to make these! They seem perfect for the holidays (and would probably look great with a candle inside, too!).
