5 Ways to Decorate For Christmas Using Glass
Snowflakes are falling, knitwear is finding its way out of the closet, and the frost is biting our noses – winter has arrived!
Love to get crafty? Then you will love this colourful do-it-yourself tutorial that will add glamour to your glassware.
All you need is some water-based paint, newspaper, glass jars and a little bit of imagination to turn a simple jar into a classy colour-dipped piece of glassware.
Try this easy 4-step method:
1. Before you start, prepare your jars by soaking them in soapy water for a few hours. Using a rough sponge and hot water, remove any labels or ink. Wait for the jars to dry.
2. Find a bowl to pour your paint in to. Make sure it’s about an inch deep and stir out any bubbles.
3. Dip the bottom of a jar into paint and gently turn the jar at a slight angle so that the paint begins to climb up the side of the glass. Keep rolling the jar in the paint until the glass is completely coated anywhere between a quarter to a half of the way up.
4. Once you are happy with your jar and how it’s coated, place it right side up on a few sheets of newspaper and let it dry.
Drying time depends on the paint and the size of your jars.
