Make Pretty Colored Glass With Food Coloring

Craftberry Bush

If you've ever been envious of a friend's awesome colored glass collection, take note of this DIY. With just four supplies and any clear glass bottles, you can quickly get your own pretty glass collection, in the shades and sizes of your own choosing.

Colored glass can be hard to come by and take years to build a collection. If you're not that patient or need a bunch in a particular color, this project from Craftberry Bush is perfect for you. Here's what you need:

  • Clean clear jar
  • Mode Podge or White Elmers' glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Food colouring

Craftberry Bush does note that the project takes a little patience, and the longer you wait, the more durable the dye job will be, otherwise it's possible it will scratch off. Care should also be taken with how and where the glass is dyed, for example if you plan on using the jar as a vase, only dye the outside of the glass, so the water doesn't wear down the coloring.
