Dressed Up Recycled Glasses: A Little Glitter Goes a Long Way!

Hi again! I'm excited to share what turned out to be one of my favorite DIY projects so far! 
Dress up any glass bottle, jar, etc. with a touch of glitter.

For this project I used several San Pellegrino glass bottles that I saved.
glass bottle, or jar
masking tape
paint brush
Mod Podge
plastic bag/plastic wrap
spray sealant
1.  Soak your glass bottles in warm water until the labels are easy to remove.  Scrub bottle with the coarse part of a sponge to remove any left over adhesive.
2. Using masking tape, mark off where you want the glitter on the bottle.
3. Use a paint brush to apply the Mod Podge to the marked off area.
4. Sprinkle the glitter onto the Mod Podge. You will want to do this over cardboard or a paper bag to catch the excess glitter.
5.  Allow the bottle to dry.  Then, spray sealant onto the glittery parts.  To avoid getting sealant on the other parts of the glass, tape on a plastic bag or plastic wrap.
And there you have it!
