Using a hot glue gun, Glue on your glass stones. Starting from the bottom, make one row around. The second row, stagger the stones in between 2 from the previous row. This will give better coverage and a more polished look.

Once your mason jar is covered in glass stones, add an electric candle or a few glow sticks inside to give it some light. If you use the glow sticks, they won’t last very long, but the colors look awesome through the glass stones.
