MAKE: glass painted stripy catch-all bowls.
Quick and easy crafts are a requirement for me these days. I think that is why I love working with glass paint SO much.
Do you need an inexpensive gift idea, fun entertaining dish or new home accessory? Use a little glass paint to transform dollar store glassware into something useful and pretty.
Those of you that follow me on my blog may remember that DecoArt sent me a bunch of glass paint a couple of years ago for a prior glass paint project. I still have a bunch of their product in my craft stash. Their 3-D glass paint was an easy way to create painted lines on these little dollar store bowls. Learn how to transform these little bowls into chic striped containers in this week’s video.
The striped pattern was easy to create on the glass surface with the glass writers. I think the effect has a herringbone or slightly tribal feel. If you didn’t like stripes, you also could just paint them a solid color like I’ve shown you before.
These little bowls would make lovely gifts… just fill them with holiday treats and you have a sweet present. Reuse them when you entertain or put them to work for storage in your bathroom or office.
