Glue Gun Glow

Good Morning Imaginisce fans, Lydia here with a neat idea for your fireplace mantel or table, I was inspired by an idea that I saw on Pinterest and was pleasantly surprised at how easy this was. I first got a mason jar out of the cupboard and washed it, {although any kind of glass would work} then I wrote the word I wanted on a scrap piece of paper and placed it inside the jar.

 Then turn on you i-bond, you want it to be nice and hot so the glue flows easily, and then glue\trace the word right onto the jar. The great thing about this is that if you mess up it is no big deal, while the glue is fresh it is easy to peel off.

Next find a left over paper towel roll and place your jar on it, this makes it easier to spray paint without getting it all over your hands. Choose a spray paint color and spray evenly around the jar. 

Here is the end result and when I place a candle in it, it glows like an old fashion christmas light. Perfect for my holiday table.

I'm gonna give this a try with white for winter too! I'm thinking words like Joy and Peace!! So many possibilities! Thanks for stopping by

OMG that's beautiful! At first I thought you were going to somehow peel off the hot glue for a mask effect, but I like this better!! Thanks for posting this, can't wait to try!!

That is so cool. I love how you painted the jar after. Can't wait to find something that needs personalizing. Thanks for the idea.

But if I did that it would look like a freaking spiderweb -- every time I try to use a hot glue gun I get little stringies everywhere!
