Glass Jar Paint Project

A fun and simple way to add colour to your home this spring involves just two things; old or unused glass jars or bottles and some left over sample pot paint.

For this project we bought new glass mason jars and bottles so if you're using old glasses make sure to thoroughly wash and dry them before attempting this particular project.

Using either a funnel or a steady hand, slowly pour the paint into each glass jar or bottle one at a time being careful not to let any drip down or spill on the outside of the glass.

Depending on the size of the glass will depend how much paint you will need to use, it is a little bit of trial an error so if unsure less is more. Tilting the bottle downwards at a slight angle start rotating the bottle as the paint travels down to the opening, continue to rotate until the entire inside of the glass is covered with paint then let the remaining paint pour back into the sample pot. Add more paint and repeat the process if you feel one coat isn't enough, this can be a messy process so make sure you lay down some baking paper or newspaper before starting, gloves will also help.

Allow to air dry for a least 48hrs before placing items in them or decorating , to speed up the drying time try using a hair dryer so that the paint dries to the glass quicker and prevent any streaking or drip marks to form.

A fun, effective and cheap way to add a pop of colour to any room this spring.
