DIY glass storage // daisydaisyxxo

This is my first DIY type post! Admittedly, you probably won't get many of these but I had an idea and I really wanted to photograph it to show you.
Me and my brother have recently swapped rooms and although their both pretty much done, we both still need furniture! But I had seen an idea similar to this on Pinterest a few weeks ago when I was looking for ideas for decoration in my room. It was so simple but they looked lovely to store little things in. I have always been quite arty so I tried to do it myself and I'm pleased with the result.

What you will need:

PVA glue or similar / glitter (mine is ultra fine but any will do) / jars (mine were from Dunelm Mill, the smaller one was 99p and the bigger was £2. So cheap!!!)

You might also need something to poor the glue and glitter in to, I used this old shampoo bottle

Poor the glue and the glitter in to the bottle. I used a funnel as I was doing it on my new bed (oops!) and I also added a little bit of water as I didn't want it to be too thick on the sides.

Poor some of the mixture into the jar and then just move the sides so it covers the whole things. I did this a few times to cover it properly, then I tipped out what was left.

I wish I hadn't put in so much water as it is quite thin now its drying, but I still love the way its turned out!

These were still wet so obviously they look a bit different now they've dried, but as I said I'm really happy with the way they've come out!
