DIY Glitter Jewelry Holders

I have endless amounts of jewelry - especially rings. It's the one thing that I can never have enough of. One of my favorite ways to store jewelry is in little mini jars. They're compact in size so they don't take up too much space in my room and they're easy to access whenever I need to grab something quick. I especially love jars with a bit of bling. I don't always find that, so I go to DIY, which is what I'm sharing with you today.
I found these two mini jars at Target and they're the perfect size for a ring holder. Though they are nice, I like to add a little more sparkle. I pulled out Mod Podge, loose silver glitter, a 'love' shaped punch and went to work. I personally like to do my DIY on top of a soft surface, like a towel or rug. It sounds a bit strange, but I'll be coming back to this point later and share why. But since the white towel blends in with the glass jar, I'll be taking photos on my hardwood floor so you can see the detail more clearly.


The first step is to punch the love stamp onto a piece of paper. Once that's done, cut the stamp out and put it in the jar. Tape the paper in place so it doesn't move while you put the glitter on. Using mod podge, cover the open space with the sticky substance. Then, sprinkle the glitter on top. Excess glitter is okay. You want to make sure that it is covered fully. Press the glitter down using your fingers and let the glitter dry. It should take about an hour for it to fully dry.






After it's dry, turn the jewelry holder upside down and pour the excess glitter out. Slowly peel back the tape and remove the paper. You'll now see the love written out on the glass. To secure the glitter, add a layer of Mod Podge on top of the letters. Let it dry for another hour before using.



For the other jar, I ended up just adding glitter all along the bottom. I think it came out really nice!


Looks great right?? BUT now you're stuck with some awful cleanup...I HATE using glitter because the clean up is so difficult.That's why I like crafting on top of a towel. I can pick it up easily and dump the glitter out in the garbage can. Even that didn't dispose of all the glitter. I would unravel the towel in a few weeks to find glitter falling out!

Luckily, while I was at Target, I found Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Rollers. I use lint rollers on my clothes to remove lint or hair, but since these are 50% more adhesive, they can pick up larger debris such as crumbs, pet hair, sand and glitter. I decided to get the 8" roller and give it a try. Check out the results:

Look at how much glitter was picked up! I would've never gotten this much out by just shaking the towel on the garbage can.


If you think this is impressive, check out all the other practical uses for the lint rollers. This week is the best time to purchase at Target. They have a Cartwheel offer for 15% off Scotch-Brite 50% Stickier Lint Roller (valid 11/27 - 12/3). You can find them in the household cleaner aisle (see below).


I even picked up a smaller one to bring with me in case of emergencies (yes, I carry everything with me!). My best friend has a dog who just pounces on me every time she sees me. This would be perfect for getting all the pet hairs out of my clothes after a visit from my furry friend.
