Well, I thought I would upcycle a few of them with some fun, bright spray paint for pretty Spring Centerpieces. Adding in some lovely flowers to help my home feel a bit more Spring-y as the weather in Chicago is still not on-board with the calendar…sigh.
Then just dab the Glass Paint over your silkscreen like so…just a nice even layer, not too heavy and not too light.
It truly turns out so pretty…and professional 🙂 Let the silkscreened print dry though so you don’t accidentally smudge it! Then wrap some twine around the neck and fill with your favorite pretty flowers (mine are silk flowers from Michaels!)
Now for a few things, as some of you may ask…
-I chose to spray paint the outside of my bottles so I will be able to fill them with water when I want to add fresh flowers.
-The instructions for the glass paint say to cure it (let it dry) for 21 days or bake it in the oven for optimal results but since I used spay paint on the outside I just let it be. Mine will need to cure for 21 days just sitting out and I’m fine with that, I’ll just wash them with care in the mean time.
-So far I haven’t noticed any scraping or chipping of the spray paint but mine are rarely moved/touched, if you plan on having yours out in high traffic area you may want to used the MS glass paint and then cure it in the oven.
