Hello, this is a very easy craft that just about anyone can do! All you need is acrylic paint and spouncers, and of course, a vase. Any size or shape. I found a pkg of 20 different size spouncers for less than 2.50 at Walmart.com..best deal
My mom gave me some of these bud vases over 30 years ago for my wedding. Wow, that was a long time ago! Would you believe these had to be special ordered back then? Now they sell them
at the Dollar Store!!!
These are the spouncers. I love these things!
I picked out my colors…
Tip: Put your vase upside down when doing this. Since you don’t go up the whole vase, it’s easier this way.
I put some of the colors on a dish. I used the smallest spouncer for this project. I started with the turquoise. I dipped the spouncer in the color and dabbed on the vase
I went all around the vase with the turquoise. Each time….I dabbed in paint then on vase. When I was finished with the turquoise, I kept on going until I had used all the 5 colors. Do you see below how you can see through them?
Another Tip: any little mistakes can be cleaned easily with alcohol and a QTip
If you leave it like this, just one coat, it is really nice! You can see a bit through them. I decided I wanted to try it with second coat. I only had 3 of those little spouncers, so there was a lot of running back and forth cleaning, drying them. I have no orange in this house, but I wanted a pop of color.
I baked it upside down on a cookie sheet at 350degrees for 20 minutes…let cool, that’s it….What do you think of it?
As I was doing this little project….I was thinking…wouldn’t this be cute in big circles on the washer and dryer!
Thank you for looking! Come back soon!
