DIY Spooky Glitter Vases

DIY Spooky Glitter Vases

These sparkly vases are pretty and pretty spooky!  They make gorgeous vases or candle holders and are the perfect addition to your Halloween decor or Samhain altar.


  • Clear fishbowl vase(s)
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint brushes
  • Glitter.  I used:


  • Use some mod podge on a brush to draw the face of your design onto the glass
  • Sprinkle the black glitter for the eyes, nose and mouth 
  • Using a clean, dry brush, clean off any extra glitter that my have gotten stuck to the glass and let the design dry for about 5 minutes
  • Using a large, flat brush and working around the design you have already made, fill in the rest of the vase with mod podge 
  • Sprinkle the glitter on carefully as not to get too much on your existing design (if you do just gently brush it off with a small, dry brush)
  • Let dry and fill with treats, flowers, or candles!
