I have been having fun painting glass jars this week. There are so many things you can do with those old glass containers and with the addition of a little spray paint, you can make something really pretty. It also helps that this is a quick, immediate gratification-kind of project. The other project I am working on is quite labor-intensive so it’s nice to just be able to git R done if you know what I mean! A sneak peek to come this week of that project! I made this for Emma’s teacher for teacher appreciation the other day:
I bought this vase for a buck at Sally’s and I already had the paint. I spray painted it with primer first and then 2 coats of white satin spray paint. Spray paint is just amazing!
Here’s what I made for Ana’s teachers:
I wanted to get in on the action so I whipped up some for myself, too. I was having so much fun!
For my glue sticks and crafting
|Good ol’ chalkboard paint…love it|
Any glass jar will do. I originally tried painting the inside, but it didn’t seem to work for me so these are painted on the outside… hope you like them as much as I do!
