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.
Once they were most of the way dry I peeled off the tape and let them dry the rest of the way. After about an hour they were ready. 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!
