I change water in two glasses by the season. Right now they are red and blue. But they seemed to be evaporating really fast. So today, I refilled and re-colored them, and made some plastic disks to sit on top of each.
You just need the right size, in this case, and spice lid. Then came a paper template.
Then it was cutting the plastic and placing it on the newly filled glasses.
Now we will see how long it takes. My guess is it will be a lot slower!
I have had blue in these jars for almost two years. It's my "signature color" for my blue and yellow kitchen. But today I thought "I can have these different colors for each season, even for each holiday". So that is when I took the glass nuggets out and changed the water color.
For the Fall season, it's going to be two drops of red and three of yellow. I think I will go green in December, then red in February, and just have some fun!

The AS IS store was open yesterday, so I went in to get some mugs. I found cool ones, then came upon an idea that I wanted in the house. So far, it's cost me .25!
Fill any container with water and food dye and set in a window. That's it! If it has a lid, all the better. However, you can simply poor salad oil into the container, and it will seal the top from evaporation.
The not so cool news is that in a year when you are ready to refill, the oil will have turned to a waxy substance you almost can't wash off.
So, if you have one of those "glass half full" attitudes, this is so worth it!
