Mosaic Bath Jars – Mosaic Bath Jars for Mom .

Mosaic bath jars filled with homemade bath salts make great gifts for moms this Mother's Day. Thanks to this craft project from Heidi Borchers of Inspired at Home , she can relax in the bath with a reminder of  your love. Use the recipe below for bath  salts or read more bath salt recipes here. Materials:  • Clear self adhesive laminate film (like Contact paper) • Glass jars • Mosaic pieces (ceramic and glass tiles, mirrors, stained glass, china,beads) • Embellishments (optional) – charms, tiny flowers • Goggles • Scissors • Wheeled tile nippers • Texture Magic Dimensional Paint ‐ (available in assorted colors or you can tint the white with acrylic paints) • Palette knife • Tweezers • Yarns • Glass beads • Aleene's® Stop Fraying® Glue Instructions:  1. To create the stencil, trace half of a heart shape onto the paper side of the self‐adhesive film. Fold in half  and cut out. You will be using the outside part of the film on the jar and the inside heart shape as the  placement pattern. 2. Place the heart shape onto workspace. Arrange the alphabet  letters and mosaic pieces onto the pattern to determine placement. Use the nippers to cut the pieces as needed. (Always use goggles when cutting tiles and glass.) When placing onto pattern, leve a small amount of space between each piece. 3. Remove the paper backing from the film piece that you cut from the self‐adhesive paper and place sticky side  down onto the glass jar or bottle front aligning to be certain that it is centered. This is now the stencil that you are going to use to create the heart shape from the dimensional paint. 4....
