I have a collection of glass containers sitting in my house. They aren’t fancy; they’re just glass containers like spaghetti sauce jars and a cracked pitcher. I can’t bear to throw them away, but they’re awfully plain and ugly on their own. This tutorial is a way to glam up any odd glass containers you may have about and turn them into fashionable home décor!
– metallic spray paint
– 3D paint
– glass container
First, be sure to remove the labels from any jars you have and clean all the containers. Thoroughly dry them.
Next, use the 3D paint and decorate the containers. I would suggest a simple design like a band of swirls, vertical lines, or polka dots. It seems with this project that less is more! Be sure to let the puff paint dry completely.
When the paint is dry, take the glass outside and spray paint the entire thing. It may require two coats. If so, let each coat dry before adding the next.
Your containers are glammed up and ready to use!
As you may be able to see on one of my jars, I struggled to remove all the adhesive of one of the labels, and this is magnified by the metallic paint. I would suggest using a strong cleaner to eat away the adhesive or choosing a container without a label, such as an old drinking glass or plain jar.
