step 6Add glitter
Add the glitter and one-eighth of a teaspoon of glycerin to the jar.
step 7Attach the lid
Screw the lid onto the jar, turn it over, and give it a shake. Add more glitter if needed.

step 8 width=Seal the lid
Squeeze a thin layer of silicone sealant on the threads of the lid before screwing it on tightly.
