Hiiii! HI! 

I am so, super, dee duper excited to show you guys my newest video! I’ve been wanting to make this for myself for a while and decided it would be great to do as a DIY tutorial for all you guys, too! So I did! I love it, I love it, I love it! It turned out soooo AWESOME! Okay, take a looky at what we’re making: 

Isn’t it the greatest? Oh, I know I JUST LOVE IT! :D Okay, so, before I get to the video, I’m going to tell you guys everything I used and what you’ll need if you want to make one for yourself.

So first, I’ve chosen this color scheme you see in the photo because it goes a long with the color theme I’ve started in my art room, which you may remember from way back when I did the post about my new art room, if not, you can click here to check out that post. I should do an update on my art room soon, now that I’m thinking about it… anyway, back to this crazy awesome project! 

So, yeh, I’ve chosen this color combo for that reason and you can either do the same or feel free to come up with your own color pallet. I used the Martha Stewart Multi-Surface craft paints and they come in so many different colors so you’re options are almost unlimited… not to mention mixing to create unique colors, which you’ll see me do in the video. I just LOVE these paints (as well as the MS glass paints) since they come in so many amazing colors and finishes (we want to stick to Satin Finish for this project)  and you can bake to cure them so they become permanent on even glass! AWESOME! And no, I’m not making a cut from Martha’s profits (I’m not at a point with my blog to be asked to do such things yet either. Ha ha) I just really do love these paints! Alright, so here are all the things I used and you will need to get started:

Things You’ll Need 

    -            2 Regular sized Mason Jars ($1.99 CAN  for each at Michael’s)
-            1 Large Wide Mouth Mason Jar ($3.99 CAN at Michael’s)
-            3 Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Acrylic craft paints in Satin finish ($3.50 CAN for each at Michael’s)
-            3 Foam Brushes (89¢ CAN each at Michael’s)
-            Small Piece of Sandpaper
-            3 empty dishes for paint

I also wanted to mention that checked out Walmart and some do have these paints for $2.88 CAN each. Some of them cost more depending on the finish and the color selection was very limited. Perhaps your Walmart may have more of a variety so, if you want to take the time to check, you might save a small bit of money. Okay, here we go (I am SO EXCITED), here is the video:
