I have been wanting to make one of these color block/dip dyed glass jar canisters for a while! I've seen them for upwards of $130 from Anthro, Scout + Nimble, Pottery Barn, and more.  I LOVE them, but not the price. So I decided to dupe my own and do a little DIY!

I used the final product for our Christmas dining room tablescape, but I plan to use them on our fireplace mantel going forward. They're not just for the holidays!
Here are some quick tips:
  • Find some cheap glass jars/canisters/vases in different sizes from Hobby Lobby or a craft store.  Here's a few options: 
  • Clean your jars with glass cleaner before starting to remove any fingerprints/dirt.
  • Make sure your tape is even all the way around the jar.
  • Shake your spray paint can for at least 1 minute for each coat. If you have kids, enlist one of them to help with this. They love it, haha.
  • Wait at least 5-6 minutes in between coats.
  • Make sure to complete all coats within 30-40 minutes for best results.
  • Take a magic eraser with a little bit of water on it to remove the excess spray from the glass where it's not supposed to be. Works like a charm and comes right off!
  • After that's done, spray them with the glass cleaner again to remove any streaks from the magic eraser/water.

I sprayed ours in the garage and let them dry for a little over 24 hours. I added some copper wire string lights that are battery operated (Make sure it's *copper*! It really pops so much more inside of these jars).
These make such a pretty statement piece on your dining room table, kitchen island, fireplace mantel, or bedroom dresser/nightstand! You will save so much money doing them yourself vs. buying from the store, too!
