Hi friends! Grab an old jar out of the recycling bin and let’s make a pretty stained glass vase!
I am using this to propagate a begonia and it is so pretty sitting on my windowsill! This project is very easy and you can even do this with kids! Watch the video to see how and check out the end of this post for other DIY ideas to make this project even more affordable!
- I used store-bought glass paint but you can make glass paint by mixing white glue or glossy Mod-Podge with ink or food coloring. This DIY version may fade eventually but it is a less toxic alternative for kids and cheap too!
- You can use dimensional fabric paint (like the Tulip puff paint) to draw the leading lines and it’s only about $1 a bottle.
- You can work directly on the glass instead of using the Duralar film, it will adhere fine, it was just easier for me to trace the design with the film.
- Another “stained glass” option for little ones is to use bits of cut up colored tissue paper and glue them to jars, it’s pretty!
I hope you enjoyed this project and til next time happy crafting!
