Silve Rimmed Hurricane Easter Decorations; A guest post

You might all recognize my friend Ashley from My Craftily Ever After and she's here today to help me out while I am dealing with this ridiculousness at the hospital!  I can't wait to see what she has to show us today!

As part of the DecoArt Blogger Program, I received product for this posts; but all projects, pictures and opinions are my own.

Hello! My name is Ashley and I blog over at My Craftily Ever After. I share a combination of recipes, easy crafts and knock offs! I also co-host a link party on Tuesdays and I would love for you to share your projects with me! I was so excited when Randi asked if I would come over here and share a project while she was recovering from the horrors of a hospital stay!

So I saw these glass hurricanes when I was looking for decor items not too long ago and I realized that I STILL have a bagillion plain glass vases from our wedding all those years ago. I used some of the short ones to make waterscape candle holders for our bathroom not that long ago, and so this time I busted out some of the tall ones.

 I started off by taping off the top and bottom edges of the vases with some washi tape. I only used washi tape because we were out of blue painters tape and I was too lazy to go to the store. I then painted on a thick coat of DecoArt's "Shimmering Silver" and set them aside to dry.

The ones in the catalog are a wintery Christmas theme, but since I didn't do this project 4 months ago and it is now spring, I went with an Easter theme. I had some Reindeer grass and glittery eggs from the dollar store and I put some of each in the hurricanes. I really like the simple addition of the metallic rim on these hurricanes and I definitely like the $2 price tag for decorating them. I have them on my built in shelves in our living room, but I'm not done decorating them so you'll just have to wait to see them there! collagesilver rimmed easter hurricanes
