Getting Perfect Lines

Start with the center orange stripe to save time.  I knew once that the orange was dry; I would be able to apply both the gold and white without waiting for one to dry.  Using painter’s tape, I taped of my center stripe and then covered the entire center with glue using the paint brush. I sprinkled the glitter all the way around the jar.  Tap off the excess glitter and put it back in your container.

  1. I’m dropping by from the Crowned Goat link party. This is such a fun idea — and easy to do. I love it.

    I have a link party that I am trying to grow. I invite you to share this idea — and a couple of others — at my Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link party at I think my readers would love this idea as much as I do.

    The party goes from Wednesday through Friday night at midnight Mountain Daylight Time in the U.S. I hope to see you there. (If you don’t make it this week, I hope you can next week.)

    All the best,
