DIY: Vintage Aqua Glass Jars

I’ve been wanting to make these aqua vintage glass jars so badly! And tell you what? One should make them ‘coz they give any wee corner such a brilliant look. Stud them with flowers or with some vanilla pods or lavender bunch. I just cannot get over them. Best part is, mine are washable, inside out!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Turquoise Ink- any. Fountain pen ink, sketch pen ink, food color or any color that does not have a latex base. Acrylic paints would not work. You can mix two parts of blue to one part of green if turquoise is not available.

White glue that dries clear- again, any.

A thick brush

Clear varnish


Clean your jars with soap water and dry thorough

To about a tablespoon of glue mix two drops of turquoise ink

Mix thoroughly and with help of a brush paint the glass jars on the outside

Let it dry for at least an hour before giving it a coat of clear varnish

Let dry for a day and you’re ready to flaunt them.

Washing instructions: Cold water rinse only and a light sponge would be perfect.

Hope you all had a productive weekend and hope you all have a super creative week ahead.

  1. These are gorgeous, and these are such a beauty turquoise color. So simple to do, I have blue jars, and are, but these are too. Love how they look the elegance of flowers in side. I don’t use my jars often enough in decorating! thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know you like my French Coffee Lamp. As you know, it’s great to get feedback!


    • Thank you Cathy. Well, I had no choice but to comment and let you know that I went absolutely gung ho over it. And yes, it’s always a pleasure to get feedback. Good, bad suggestions, anything. You know I sometimes wonder how the world would have been without terrific bloggers and DIY-ers! I shiver at the thought 🙂
