Reverse Painted Candy Vases

This lovely project is from my book: The Crafty Chica Collection!


4 pieces of glass (you can use from dollar store picture frames)
duct tape or silver tape
craft paint or inks made for glass
water-based varnish
4 wood balls for feet.

Wear gloves if you are afraid to work with the glass. Start with one piece of glass, face down. Ink or add paint to your stamp and press on the glass.
IMPORTANT: Remember, it is going to be presented on the other side of the glass, so your image will be backwards!

Let dry. Use a liner brush to fill in any missed areas. Add other designs around the glass. Let dry. Paint over the entire surface with a contrasting color. Let dry, coat with water-based varnish.

Assemble the glass in a box shape by using the tape to joint them. Make sure to seal off the top edges. Glue the painted wood balls for the feet.

Fill with candy, cotton balls, licorice, anything groovy!
