My parents have beautiful circle shaped glass that they were uncertain what to do with. They have been saving them because they knew that they could be used for something. When I showed my mother the Martha Stewart Holiday Icons stencil I had, she asked if we could use one of the shapes to decorate one of her glass pieces. Of course I said yes.
Holly Jolly Centerpiece
– Glass (whatever shape you choose)
– Wood base to hold the glass upwards
– Holly stencil from Martha Stewart Crafts Holiday Icon Stencils.
– Glass patterning tape
– Fine Glitter Glass Paint – Garnet
– Glass Paint – Sweetgrass
– Glitter – Garnet
– Glitter – Peridot
– Wood Stain – Espresso
– Soft cloth
Step 1: Position the stencil onto your clean glass surface. Once positioned where you would like it, use glass patterning tape to secure the stencil onto the surface.
Step 2: Use a dauber to dab the Sweetgrass glass paint inside the holly leaves.
Step 3: While the paint is still wet, sprinkle the Peridot glitter onto the leaves.
Step 4: Once the leaves are dry, you can start working on the holly berries. Use the dauber to dab the Garnet glass paint onto the berries.
Step 5: While the berries are still wet, sprinkle Garnet glitter.
Step 6: Once you are finished with the paint and glitter, you can remove the stencil from the surface.
Step 7: Now it’s time to work on the wood base. (Hopefully you can make yourself a base or have someone who can.) With a soft cloth apply wood stain onto the base. We applied one thin coat.
Step 8: Once the base is dry, place your painted glass piece inside, decorate it and then you are finished! :)
So, what do you think? Isn’t it pretty? I LOVE how it turned out!
Maybe I should ask my parents for one of their glass pieces so that I can make one for myself too?
Hope you are having a BEAUTIFUL day!
P.S. I’ll be linking to these Parties.
