Recently a friend gave me the light globes from a bathroom she was was remodeling.

Right away my mind went to Mason Jars... I wonder if it would fit on top of a Mason jar???

And guess what... it did! 

So because the jar was clear and the flower globe was frosted I wanted to make them match.

I whipped up a little DIY recipe of Modge Podge and several drops of food coloring

For this color I used about 5 drops of green and 2 drops of blue in about 1/2 a cup of Modge Podge

I painted the frosted flower globe and the jar with a coat of the mixture then let it dry.

When the first coat was dry I gave it one more. 

As you can see the Modge Podge mixture turns clear as it dries.

And yes that floral globe fit exactly inside the Mason Jar

For this one I dropped a battery powered candle inside the jar.

Another version used the metal piece that originally attached the globe to the light fixture. 

The metal piece also fit inside the Mason Jar but created a base so you can fill the flower top.

Fill it with Easter Grass and eggs...

or put a tea light candle in the top and fill the jar with jelly beans.

This project is not only for Easter, you can dye the Modge Podge any color and create a jar for any occasion. 

A sea glass nautical look works too!

I'm waiting on the rest of the globes from her bathroom

I love it when my friends save me their junk!
