Here are some great ways to upcycle old baby food jars - and this is my favourite. Dip paint the bottom of the jars in gold paint and use them as small vases. They look particularly pretty when grouped together.
For Dining Room-Mercury glass mason jars. Looking glass spray paint, equal parts vinegar/water spray bottle. Spray with water mix then add light coat of spray paint. Allow to dry. Use a paper towel to wipe away bubbled areas for completed look.
Cute, easy and simple center pieces! Buy rhinestones from Michael's or Hobby Lobby, glue them with a hot glue gun to some glass candle holders from the dollar store and voila! OR put glue on and dip in glitter!
