Does anyone have a glitter jar/bottle?

I was wondering if anyone else had a glitter bottle. 

I made one in a small bottle yesterday :D (by the way the jar is a better idea. Trying to put the glitter glue past the bottleneck is very likely to change your kitchen into a glitter disaster)

You should post the recipe you used so others can make it too! :3

Here is mine:





I think I put too much glitter...but I still like it ^^


The color changes from blue to purple, depending on the light and the way the glitter moves.


I did not make it alone, my Daddy actually helped me a lot ^^  It was a fun activity to do together

Thank you!  <3

I'm not sure if you can call that a recipe, it was really messy. Basically I alternated between putting the glitter glue (I used sky blue, blue, pink , fuschia, purple, gold and silver. I have literally no idea of how much I used) and the hot water. As the glue sometimes stayed stuck in the bottleneck I used the end of a paintbrush to push it in. I colored the water with a bit of liquid watercolor and I put the bottle in a hot water bath to liquefy the rest of the glue (for some reason it didn't work with the blue one so now there's a weird "glue pebble" inside...). Then I added a little bit of blue sparkles.


Tamsin I love what you did *__* It's super cute!

Mine is blue I wanna make a second one that is purple and I want it to have a pretty space theme. 



But yeah the picture above is mine.


I think I also have the recipe in my coping skills post. but I can post it here too. 


What do they do?

Glitter jars is most commonly referred to as a calming jar or a mind jar. It's a very simply style of snow globe. Glitter jars are fantastic for calming someone when they’re stressed out. You simple shake the jar back and forth, and the glitter is really soothing. Its calming for ED, Anxiety, Depression, Self harm and much more!  My understanding is, you want to make them as pretty as possible for yourself.

Materials you'll need

  • Mason Jar or baby food jar, or a clear bottle. 
  • Craft glitter
  • Glitter Glue 
  • Hot Water
  • Food coloring 
  • Ribbion (Optional)
  • ECT!


  1. Take the jar and fill it almost all the way full with hot water. You can do this by boiling the water, OR microwaving water.  Please remembre if you are going to boil some of your water will evaporate. You just need hot water to break down the glitter glue. Add the water to the mason jar. Add desired amount and color of glitter to the mason jar.
  2. Add a bit of food coloring (your choice of color) and mix with a chopstick or something. Make sure the water doesn't look too dark!
  3. Add your glitter glue. The glitter glue just gives the jar an effect that makes it look like there’s glitter all over the jar. The water should feel thicker than normal with the glue in it, but not too much. Too much glue will make the glitter move around too slow. You will want to stir it at this point with something(Chopstick, BBQ stick, A folk.)
  4. Add some glitter, but not EVERYTHING. Worst case scenario, you add in more glitter later on. 
  5. Close the lid of the jar, and seal it tight! If yo uhave a Mason Jar, you need to set the lid in some water. Shake it up like you would shake a snow globe for about 15 seconds.
  6. Wait five minutes for the glitter and foam to settle and then you’re all done!

Sae, mine are not nearly as pretty as yours is! But I made two today as practice, one purple and one blue. I didn't use food coloring, so maybe that's part of the problem?
