Short on time, but needing a cool centerpiece for you table or accent for your mantle décor? Then this drip vase project is for you! I’ve been dripping a lot of things lately (Dripped crayon pumpkin, anyone?), but this one by far is the simplest and easiest one to do!
I’m not going to include formal step by steps for this one, cause it goes like this… 1) wash and clean a glass 20 oz. tea bottle or bottle of your choice. 2) Spray paint the bottle black and let dry. 3) Mix acrylic paint with some water (2 parts paint to 1 part water). I actually used some leftover Tulip Paint Cannon paint I had left over in my paint stash that was this consistency. 4) Pour slowly over top of jar letting the drips create stripes on the side of the bottle. Let dry. 5) Find some coordinating floral sprays from your local craft store and insert into jar for a funky look. I picked my glittery floral sprays up at Michaels.
Here’s how it looked right after I poured the paint. My other two projects…the pink drip bottle and dripped neon pumpkin are what I consider to be Craft Fails. The orange and pink paints I used was too runny (too much water in it) and dried very dull. The green on the other hand wasn’t liquidy enough and dried globby. They looked awesome though right after I poured them. Too bad they couldn’t stay that way! 🙁
Now that I’ve ruined the pumpkin, I think I’m going to cover it with fabric or paper. I have a few ideas up my sleeve to make it come back to life and not be a totally miserable fail!
Until next time Swellions!
