Mother’s Day Idea: Painted Glass Vase

This week I will be sharing some cute Mother’s Day ideas your kids could make. Enjoy!

How cute are these vases from Family Fun?

Painted Glass Vase

Supplies:

Clean, empty jar

Acrylic or liquid tempera paints

Paintbrushes or cotton swabs

White glue

Clear glaze (available at craft stores)

Procedure:

1. To make the paints stick to the glass, first mix the colors with some glue. Keep the paint thick so it won’t run.

2. Use brushes or cotton swabs to paint a design on the jar. To erase a mistake, use a paper towel to wipe off the paint before it hardens.

3. Let the paint dry, then seal the finished design with a coat of glaze.
