Primary TechniqueGlass Crafts




  • Glass jars
  • Sponge brush
  • Paint
  • Colored scrapbook paper
  • Double-stick tape
  • Battery operated tea lights


  1. Make faux beach glass jars out of the glass jars that you have collected. Just use a sponge brush to apply the paint. After the first 2-3 jars, you’ll have the paint application technique down (don’t give up after the first jar).

  2. Simply add a strip of colored scrapbook paper to match your theme. Vary the sizes from 1 inch to 2 1/2 inches in width. Use double-stick tape to hold the paper closed.

  3. Add a battery operated tea light to each jar and voila!
