Ombre Bud Vase

If you like simple but statement making projects this one is for you!

I saw these great bud vases on sale at Target and had to snag a few up.  I’m thinking these are going to make a great pick-me-up gift for some friends.  Who doesn’t love to get flowers?!?

I could have left these nice and clear, ya know, like boring glass.  But I decided to jazz these up a bit with frosted glass paint.  I went to my Americana glass painting supple stash and found the perfect colors.

Using a paint brush, I applied the paint in 3 sections.  The first section I did 3 layers of paint letting each layer dry before applying the next layer.  The second section I did 2 layers and let each dry. With the third section only receiving a light layer.  I tried to over lap and blend each layer in to the next.  It is subtle but I love it!

I can’t wait to take these to some friends that I’ve been thinking about.  Don’t you just love giving a fun surprise? I do especially if it’s something I’ve made!
