What you'll do:
Squeeze approximately one tablespoon of glue into a small bowl. Add a little bit of water and stir the mixture until it's smooth and slightly diluted.
Using a paint brush, spread a medium layer of the glue mixture along the inside and bottom of the Mason jar. You can choose how high you want the glittering to go, and the lines don't need to be perfect.
Pour a fun amount of glitter into a pile at the bottom of the jar. You need enough to cover all of the glue you painted.
Holding the Mason jar horizontally, rotate it several times until all of the glue mixture is completely covered with glitter.
Pour any extra glitter back into its container or into a separate bag for safe keeping until your next glittery project.
Your glittery Mason jar candle holder will be dry within minutes. Once it is, carefully place a candle inside and you're ready to brighten up your Memorial Day festivities!
Consider making several candle holders using red, white and blue glitter. They look lovely side by side!
