Drippy the Vase

You’re half way there, it’s Wednesday, Friday is in sight! Unless you work on the weekends, then it’s just depressing.

I went to the Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox Twenty concert on Monday. We were all a little iffy on whether a Monday night concert was a bad idea or not. It also was supposed to rain all night (hooray). But thanks to Colorado’s bi-polar weather patterns we ended up with no rain and a beautiful 70 degree night! I sure love it here.

Today’s post is a quick and simple craft. I’m helping out K-Love at the City Harmonic concert at the Rapids game tonight, so this is just a fun and fast craft! It’s terribly hard to screw up and it’s neat to see how it comes out!

What You Need:

  • Vase or candle holder
  • Acrylic glass paint

Instructions:

1. Flip the vase or candle holder upside down. Put big globs of paint all around the vase, like shown below.

2.Once you have all the globs of paint, gently bang the vase on the table- still upside down. The paint will start running down the sides. You can keep going til it is at the desired drip distance.DSC07084

3. Let this completely dry. I put mine in front of the fan. It takes a while to completely dry, so you’ll notice some of the paint can run together a little bit if you don’t let it dry all the way.

4. Use you second color of paint and repeat. You can do this with as many colors and as many times as you want.

5. Once completely dry, flip over and you’re done! I told you it was simple 🙂

Have fun!
