DIY Beach Glass Directions: 1) Start with clean, dry glass bottles and jars and prepare your workspace. 2) Mix the school glue and water as if you were making homemade mod podge. Just mix 2-3 parts glue to 1 part water. 3) Add a few drops of blue and green food coloring. Add more blue or green depending on your preference. Add just a little dish liquid.
GREAT IDEA!! FOR BACKYARD FUN, NO BUGS!! All you need is a package of Mason jars, some cotton string and some liquid citronella (find it in big jugs at any home-improvement store and even some grocery stores). Use a hammer and nail to poke a hole in the top of the lid, then pour in the citronella, put the top on and drop in the wick. Allow the string about 10 minutes to soak up some oil.
