Have you ever wanted to paint a glass vase just to create a change? I have a sweet hubby who showers me with flowers, so of course I have a TON of clear glass vases. I have been wanting to make a few projects, and coloring these plain clear vases was on my list.
The first step is gathering your supplies. You can find these at your local craft store. For this quick and easy project you will need your glass vase to paint, your preferred glass paint, and a paint brush.
For my paint, I used Martha Stewart for glass, wood, etc. It covers and dries really well.
To get started, pour your paint into the bottom of the vase. I then used my brush to move it up the sides. (You can see the streaks here, but after we finished they were less noticeable, and after a second coat, there are none.)
Make sure you smooth your paint all around. For this particular vase the brush would not get under the “lip”, so we used our hands to smooth it all around the top.
All done! These are the new painted vases after the first coat. Let your paint dry and apply a second coat if necessary.
I can’t wait to add some craft store flower arrangements to these!
