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


Clean, empty jar

Acrylic or liquid tempera paints

Paintbrushes or cotton swabs

White glue

Clear glaze (available at craft stores)


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.
