Modern Silver Glitter Striped Vase

Sometimes the most simple accessories and home decor accents are the most beautiful.  If you are looking for a simple piece using a few paint colors, this modern silver glitter striped vase is a great project for you.  Not to mention that if you’ve never painted glass before, this is a great project to start with.  You can use these basic instructions to add spice to a glass piece you already have on hand.  Here’s how.

Gather These Supplies

  • FolkArt Enamels Glitter, Silver
  • FolkArt Enamels Paint, Aqua
  • 1 ½” tape
  • ¾” foam spouncer
  • Craft knife and blades
  • Cutting surface
  • Ruler or straight edge
  • Angular glass vase

Lay tape onto cutting surface.  We used a piece of glass but you can also use a craft mat.

Using your ruler and knife, cut tape strips of approximately ¼” width.

Tape stripes to vase equal distance apart, making one stripe on one side intentionally wider (this will be your aqua stripe).

Apply silver glitter to small stripes with a spouncer.

Apply aqua to the one wide stripe.  Allow to dry.

Remove tape and scratch off any bleed under with knife.  Allow to the paint to air cure according to bottle instructions.
