Today’s first for the “one new thing a day for 100 days” new years res was to make a mason jar prism light. At the end of a long day it was a good break for the mind.. fun craft project that takes under one hour. Mine is still drying, but hopefully will end up looking like the online pinterest final product pictured at the bottom of this post.
Supplies You Will Need To Make A Prism Mason Jar Light:
- Mason jar
- Round glass decorative elements
- e3600 glue (or any glue rated for affixing to glass)
- Ribbon or twine
- Tea light
Step 1: Apply Glue To Mason Jar
Apply E3600 glue in small patches in a well-ventilated area with your brush. Apply glue to a small area on jar, working from the base of the lid downward.
Step 2: Apply Glass To Mason Jar
Add glass elements over the glue. Take your time planning out the design, as some round glass elements may be bigger than others. Once the area is dry, move on to the next, slowly covering the body of the mason jar. This process takes a few hours, so no rush!
Step 3: Finishing Touches
Once your glass has completely dried, remove lid top and tie a pretty ribbon or twine around the lip of the jar. Insert tea light into candle and enjoy..
