DIY: Tinted Jars and Bottles

Recycle old jam or pasta sauce jars into tinted glass pieces you can put on display

Shares

If you have a big home and got a lot of jars and bottles because of your grocery consumption, you might be wondering of other ways to recycle the glassware. Sure, you can always give them a good wash and reuse them to store other food items, but they tend to stack up.

Why not give them a new life? Tint your jars and bottles using a rainbow of colors so you can put them on display or give them away as gifts.

How-to:
  1. Mix together ¼ cup of Mod Podge and a few drops of food coloring. Add as much food coloring to get the shade you want. (Optional: Add water depending on how opaque you want your tint to be.)
  2. Pour mixture into the jar or bottle.
  3. Swirl it around until the entire interior is covered with the mixture. Pour out excess.
  4. Heat oven to 180?C and bake for 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Let cool.
  6. Use your finished project as vases, organizers, and more!

NOTE: Once tinted, these jars and bottles won’t be waterproof. They aren’t safe to be used as food containers, too.
