Summer Garden Mason Jar Luminary
Designed by Cindi Bisson
I love adding pretty accent pieces to my summer garden. This luminary offers a splash of color in the daylight, and then with the press of the button on the lid it gives off a soft glow through the etched glass and semi-translucent colorful flowers in the evening.
- Mason jar
- etchall® etching cream (www.etchall.com)
- Loew-Cornell™ paint brush (www.loew-cornell.com)
- Loew-Cornell™ TransformMason™ – LED Lid Insert, Wide Mouth Wire Handles
- DecoArt® Glass Paint Markers™ – Yellow, Violet, Orange, Fuchsia (www.decoart.com)
- JudiKins™ Ricky Ticky Stickies Cube stamp (www.judikins.com)
- AAA batteries
- Coat entire outside of jar with etchall cream. Wait 15 minutes, return cream to bottle and rinse jar to clean. Let dry.
- Apply fuchsia DecoArt Glass Paint Marker directly to one flower on JudiKins Ricky Ticky Stickies cube and stamp onto etched jar. Repeat randomly around jar. Repeat with violet marker on a different flower, yellow marker on a different flower, and orange marker on a different flower, allowing flowers to overlap each other until desired effect is achieved. Flowers will be somewhat translucent – this is the effect you want so the light will shine through the flowers themselves.
- Follow manufacturer instructions for curing Glass Paint Markers on glass.
- If the Loew-Cornell TransformMason handles are too large for the jar you have used, simply use a pair of pliers to bend back the end that hooks to close the handle to make the opening a bit smaller, then place it onto the jar.
- Insert AAA batteries into the TransformMason LED light and place light and lid piece into the top of the jar.
