Give the psychedelic trend a 21st-century makeover with this hypnotic, portable floating glitter jar.
How to Make a Glitter Jar at Home
What You Need:
- A lidded mason jar
- 3 tablespoons glitter glue
- Hot water
- Loose glitter

Secure the lid, shake and watch the mesmerizing glitter float around.
