  1. I would never have thought to use food coloring ;-) They turned out beautiful – I especially like the marks which the brush made ! Thank you for sharing at our ALL MY BLOGGY FRIENDS party :-)

    • I’m excited to try some new combinations of food coloring, too…I think pink or blue-green would be lovely too! Endless possibilities!

  2. Those are so pretty. Sometimes it just takes trial and error. Thanks for posting yours and giving the scoop on this cool technique. They will look stunning lit at night. Stopping by from Trans. Thurs. Have a lovely week. Blessings! Wanda

    • I thought about doing dots on the next ones too, I think they’d be super cute! AND the glasses are from the dollar store, so you can do a bunch however you’d like without spending much at all!

  3. Very pretty! How funny, I have a similar project in my Pinterest files as well. That particular post suggested using Mod Podge Gloss so I am wondering if that makes a difference? Thanks for sharing this and it encourages me to give it a try.

  4. Lovely candle holders and I’m so glad you didn’t give up at the fail stage of the project! Bummer the baby food jars are “wasted” or did you find something else to do with them? Thank you for sharing at A Crafty Soiree. I’ve featured your project this week, it’ll be up tonight at midnight. I hope you come see it and share more of your crafty creations.

    • Thanks so much, Katie! And the baby food jars weren’t ruined…I just filled them up with water and let them sit for a few minutes, then the mod podge peeled right out! So they are sitting and waiting for the next project, haha.

  5. After the modge podge completely dries, should they still not touch water because I was thinking of making them into a vase to put flowers in?

    • Yeah even after it dries, if it gets wet it will peel right off, so you’d have to seal it with something else to be able to use it as a vase. If you were really careful with the water, you could paint the outside of the vase though!

  6. Im wanting to do this on some old beer bottles. For a n edging In a flower bed that I got from pinterest…Would a clear coat work to protect from the rain?

    • Hm, I’m not sure…honestly, I’ve never used any kind of clear coat before, so I don’t have much expertise there! It might work…you’ll have to try it and let me know!

  7. I’ve been looking all over for votive holders in fall colors, to use my battery-powered tea lights. I’ll just make my own! Thanks.
