Mother's Day beach theme vase and candle jarCreate a vase or candle holder in moms favorite color. I used FolkArt extreme glitter acrylic pain in Turquoise. I painted 2 layers letting them dry in-between coats.
For the square candle holder I used Fosted Glass spray paint over the whole jar.
For the mason jar I used an acrylic medium paint over the whole jar. Then I used a glue gun to place the twine around the top. Next I glued shells and glass rocks to the twine and jar.

TIP : Use a jar around the house or go to the dollar store to buy a vase / candle holder. You can also find shells, twine and glass rocks at the dollar store.
