Tinted Glass Jars + Giveaway

We LOVE Tumble Dye! So, we are super excited to have a whole week to show off some of the fun new projects we have been creating lately.


Today we have these pretty colored jars. Wouldn't they make such lovely centerpieces for a wedding reception? Tumble Dye makes it possible to mix up any color you'd like. Would you like to make some for your next party or spring decor?


Here's how to do it: 
1. Mix a few of tablespoons of Tumble Dye and Mod Podge in a glass jar. For a brighter color, use more Tumble Dye. For a softer color, use less Tumble Dye and more Mod Podge. 
2. Carefully twist your jar around over a bowl to cover the inside. Let the excess drip into the bowl. 
3. Dry your jar upside down on a paper bag for about a half hour. The jar should become more clear and the excess liquid should now be on the paper bag. 
4. Place your jar upside down on a cookie sheet covered with waxed paper. 
5. Put the cookie sheet in the oven on warm for 10 minutes. 
6. Using oven mitts to protect your hands, turn the jar over and put back in the warm oven for an additional 20-30 minutes. 
7. Let them cool and decorate! Any questions?


If you would like to enter a GIVEAWAY to win some SEI goodies, including Tumble Dye, simply leave a comment on this post. The giveaway will go all week long. So, you can leave one comment each day for up to 5 entries!

Wow, this is so handy for all those glass bottles I collect!! I'm from South Africa, so not too sure what tumble dye is... Is it dye that you would normally use in the clothes washing machine?? I would love to win a prize, hope it's possible in South Africa!!!

Please share porportions of Modge Podge/Tumble Dye used. Warm oven 200?

Sandra said...

All of the examples for the Tumble Dye are so cheerful, bright and sunny! Of course, the umbrella paper is perfect for our rainy Oregon Spring! The tinted jars are such an easy project for kids this summer.

Thanks for your comments! To answer your questions...

Judy -- Right now you can also purchase Tumble Dye at Hobby Lobby and a few Michael's stores carry it too.

Candice -- Tumble Dye is a craft and fabric dye.

"Unknown" -- The proportions I used of Tumble Dye to Mod Podge was nearly 50% TD to 50% Mod Podge. I wanted my color vibrant. Also, my oven didn't have a "warm" setting either so I just did close to the lowest mine would go. I would say between 175-200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sherri said...

What can you say but a gift from craft heaven. I see a busy, fun summer.

Lily said...

Fun! And so pretty!

Ruth said...

I love the colors and how pretty they look.
