Hi All! I would like to take this time to thank you all for following along with me on my creative journey. It is greatly appreciated, Thank You! I enjoy sharing my craft projects with you all and I am looking forward in sharing more fun projects. Today I was going to share a completely different project until my eyes fell on this Dollar Tree Pumpkin Jar with my first pitiful attempt at using alcohol inks. I had picked up this cute little jar thinking that it would make a cute little pumpkin jar. Recently seeing some cute glass items where alcohol inks were used, like this alcohol ink glass pumpkin over at Sadie Seasongoods, I decided to give it a try. Well, I wasn’t happy with my blotchy attempt so the jar just sat there until now.
Since spotting the jar and with Thanksgiving only a few days away I decided that I better get her done or she will sit there until next year. After watching a few YouTube videos, I gave it another try, and I am pleased with the results.

Diy Dollar Tree Pumpkin Jar
My first try with alcohol inks I had dabbed on the ink and it looked like this blotchy mess below.
The second try I used a cotton ball and instead of dabbing the ink on I made straight strokes going the same direction making a smooth clear clean look instead of blotchy.

All it needs now is a raffia bow around the lid and I’m done. Have you played around with any alcohol inks? If so, please share any tips you may have in the comments below.
Thank you for stopping by and have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving Holiday!

I actually really like your blotchy version Linda. It’s got character and interesting depth to it, almost like green mecury glass? No idea if you even get something like that 😀 We tried playing with alcohol inks a few years back and made some tile trivets which was fun. No tips I’m afraid, we just splattered the ink on and sealed them.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and got to spend time with your family <3

Thank you Michelle! Oh I bet those turned out really pretty! I guess I just need to play around with it some more. Yes I did get to see both my girls and family and had a nice visit. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
