I’ve always loved the way pretty colors in stained glass shine through in vintage windows and churches when the sun hits them just right! When I found out that there was an easy alternative to making these pretty colors come alive, I was super excited! Mason jars were what I had on hand and they quickly became my version of a DIY stained glass mason jars project!

Supplies for making stained glass mason jars
Step by Step Instructions for making stained glass mason jars
1. Place a few drops of your desired stain glass gel stain color into the bottom of your glass container and swirl it around.
2. Lie your container upside down until the stain coats the sides. This part takes a lot of patience, but it’s definitely possible.
3. Use a blow dryer to help dry your stain to the sides of the jar; otherwise, it seems to slide right off as quickly as you coat it.
4. Arrange in a container of your choice. I chose this farmhouse style galvanized tote and added a little stenciling to the front for embellishment. Additionally, I chose to add some spring floral picks to the jars themselves.

Who knew making your own version of stained glass was so easy! This DIY turned out super cute for a spring project to use for displaying some summer stems with added color!!! Let me know how you end up using this idea for your own projects!!
The galvanized tin caddy and floral stems worked great with this project. It reminds me of another one of my favorite floral arrangement ideas here… Game Night Centerpiece.
