Thrifty Thursday & Random hearts

Ever wonder what to do with those cute glass containers? Why not a vase?!!
You'll need a jar, stencil, frost spray paint ( purchase at any craft store), and some tape.


First tape on your stencil. Tape off any area around it that you don't want to frost as well.


Take the jar & spray paint out side. Spray the first coat. After about a half hour, spray the second.
Remove tape. Make one or several to display all your spring blooms!

Now I need to get outside & pick some flowers : )

This week I didn't find any random hearts to post about...so I made one instead :)


Oh...and don't forget my GIVEAWAY!! It ends Friday May 13 !!

Nex time I go shopping I'll check the craft store for some frosting spray, I really like the idea of decorating jars with frosted designs.

Karen said...

That's very creative and a great way to recycle old jars.

Sometimes the best hearts are ones that spring from our imaginations and become art!!!

I love your frosted bottle heart - I must try this - it's PERFECT! Thank you so much for sharing your heart on Guest Heart Thursday!

Very cute! I once did snowflakes on wine glasses as a Christmas gift.

Allison said...

So CUTE! Is this the ordinary frost spray you can buy at Christmas time?

Frost spay paint is new to me. What a lovely idea.

I love that you used a heart. I haven't made any of these in awhile, maybe it's time to pull out my old glassware and get to work.

Nancy said...

I love the idea, but isn't this cheating a bit? Haha!

Just kidding. :)

I'm with Clytie here, the hearts we make ourselves are the best ones; a work of love. And I love your heart art! You are so creative! :-)

I love this. My mom had a friend who made her wine glasses with this technique. It would be perfect for a girls night craft.
