worry dolls I made from the doll pins. Today I'm sharing what I did with the glass jars and the wine glasses. Both were purchased at the dollar store making this a thrifty and fun project.
It also involves this wonderful can of goodness.
First I washed, dried and taped off my glass jars and wine glasses. I found this great trick on Thrifty Decor Chick's blog and it was such a time saver! (On a side note, if you haven't checked out her site YOU MUST! She gives great, and thrifty, ideas on home arrangements and projects-love her!)
Now the trick...You wrap the parts you don't want sprayed in an old plastic bag! Saran Wrap would work too! So brilliant!
Once all your pieces are sprayed they need to dry. I moved mine into our screened porch for an hour so that I didn't end up with any dirt or bugs stuck in the paint.
Once everything was dry I carefully removed the masking tape. There were are few places on the wine glasses where the paint bled under the tape. Next time I will use a better quality tape like Frog Tape.
cured for 24 hours you need to "season" the painted areas. To season the paint you gently rub chalk onto the painted areas and let it sit over night.
I love these glass jars and lids from the dollar store. They only had 3 or else I would have bought more. They are perfect for the kitchen. They also had indented squares on the side so they were super easy to tape off.
The painting possibilities are endless!
