I spent an afternoon making these with a friend.
So much fun.
We used folk art paints, ribbon, and lots of glitter!
I used an old stencil to put the “love” word on. I’d love to try doing ones that say “pencils” or “pens” or “makeup brushes” “eyeliner” “paintbrushes” etc.
You can try spray painting through lace. It looks amazing! We didn’t do it on these because we didn’t have any spray paint. But we’ve done it other times, and it IS as easy as it sounds. Just put masking tape on each side of the lace, unless you want messy, blurry lines.
Another thing to try is to wrap tape (masking tape is best) up around the jar, in a spiral. Paint over the whole jar, leave it to dry (or use a hairdryer) and then peel off the tape. You get a cute stripy jar!
For all over glitter, paint black paint (or any colour, but black works well for making the glitter stand out) all over the jar. Then just sprinkle glitter all over! Just keep layering on the glitter, and you will get an amazing finish on your jar.
You could try making a set of jars for makeup brushes and pencils, nail files, art supplies….
They would be a great gift for lots of different types of people.
Not that I gave mine away! They’re sitting on my dressing table, full of strange things like combs and eyeliners.
