 Supplies: Mason Jars/Ball Jars (make sure they have a “smooth” side– no writing), Puffy Paint and Green Spray Paint. Some glass jar suggestions: ball/mason jars, jam, peanut butter and baby food jars.

Wash, clean and dry jars. “Draw” a simple design or word with Puffy Paint. A shamrock is easy to make– just draw 3 connecting hearts. Create a four leaf clover by drawing 4 connecting hearts.

Let them dry. The Puffy Paint bottle recomments 4 hours but that’s meant for fabric. I let them dry overnight.

Spraypaint the bottles in a well-ventilated area. Use 4-5 light coats of paint, allowing each layer to completely dry. Pop some pretty (and inexpensive) flowers in and you have a lovely display or centerpiece for your home.

    These are so much fun! I have seen a similar technique on Pinterest but with hot glue. Puffy paint would allow for much more precision and spray painting the outside means that you can actually use the jars/vases to hold things. I will definitely be trying this out!
    Thanks for sharing!

    So my kid of craft (in fact I have some wood grain/heart ones sitting here – the spray paint cracked when I sprayed it – too cold1). I love using old jars – best craft supply ever! These are so darn cute…LOVE the green!

    These are so cute. Can we use a permant marker to draw something then draw over it with the puffy paints ?
    Thanks,
