DIY Glitter Mason jar candles Just make a glue wash (glue + water) and brush the inside of the mason jars. I used regular ol’ Elmer’s glue, and adding the water helps it brush on easier. Add glitter of your choice (I like silver) to the inside of the jars, and roll/spin the jar around until the glitter coats the sides. Let dry, and….done. Simply add a tea light, and you’re good to go.
