St. Pat’s Magic Vases

St. Patrick's Day Crafts

What’s magic about this St. Pat’s Day Vases project? With 3 items (one of them free) and a tiny bit of time, you can transform jars destined for recycling into something lovely for your home.

 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.

Other fun “St. Pat’s” words… Luck or Lucky.

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.

  1. Malia, what a wonderful technique! The vases are the perfect complement to the tulips!

  2. Very clever. I had done stickers on the interior of the jar and swirled paint around for Valentine’s idea. I like this idea better though. Cool stuff. Jodi @

  3. These are awesome! I love how you used the puffy paint to add the embellishments!

  4. So cute!

  5. 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!

  22. These are absolutely lovely. The bright tulips are just the right touch.

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

  24. So cute and clever, Malia!
