  • Oven preheated to 225 degrees

How To:

  1. Start by lining two baking sheets with foil or wax paper and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl or Ramekin add: 1 Tablespoon Mod Podge, 1/2 Tablespoon water, 7-9 drops of food coloring *It’s important not to add too much food coloring or the mixture will be too thin and result in streaking.
  3. Mix colored Mod Podge until smooth and pour into your glass jar.
  4. Swirl the Mod Podge around until the entire inside of your jar is covered. Drain excess into a waste bowl to be thrown away later.
  5. Carefully wipe the rim of your jar with a paper towel making sure none of the Mod Podge is on the outer lip.
  6. Place jar open side down on lined baking sheet to drain for 1 hour.
  7. After 1 hour, carefully lift jars, re-wipe the rims and place open side up on second lined baking sheet.
  8. Place in a pre-heated oven (225/warm) for 45 minutes or until Mod Podge is completely dry and glass jars are transparent.
  9. Remove baking sheet from oven and allow hot jars to cool completely before removing.
