Craft: Spec­tac­u­lar Sparkle Jars

Little Angel - - CONTENTS -

Add some sparkle to your life with th­ese easy to make glit­ter jars. They make great dec­o­ra­tions and are also sooth­ing to watch af­ter shake them!

What to do:

Step 1: Make sure your jars are clean and then squirt a gen­er­ous amount of glit­ter glue into the jar. Try to aim di­rectly into the cen­tre. Step 2: Pour wa­ter into the jar about a third of the way. Then stir the wa­ter and glit­ter glue to­gether with the stick or skewer so that they mix to­gether and you break up the glit­ter glue clumps.

Step 3: Add in a gen­er­ous amount of clear glue. We poured enough in so that the jar was about half­way full, but it will de­pend on the size of your jar. Then add in a small drop or two of food colour­ing and stir the mix­ture to­gether. (You don’t want your mix­ture to get too dark oth­er­wise you won’t be able to see the glit­ter move around in the jar.) The glue should make the mix­ture less wa­tery, which is a good thing!

Step 4: Add in the glit­ter. We put in enough so that the jar was just un­der 3/4s full. Stir it around so that the glit­ter mixes well with the rest of the mix­ture.

Step 5: Top the rest of the jar with wa­ter, but don’t fill it right up to the top! The mix­ture still needs a lit­tle bit of space to move around. Put the lid on and give the jar a lit­tle shake. If you’re happy with how the glit­ter moves in­side, glue the lid to the jar. If you think it’s too wa­tery, add more clear glue un­til you’re happy with the consistency. Step 6: Re­peat steps 1-6 with an­other jar and a dif­fer­ent colour. Then your jars are ready to go. Happy sparkle shak­ing!
