Is it obvious to anyone else that I'm about over doing Pinterest challenges? Today, it's another easy project that I honestly didn't think would work anyway. I also forgot that LAST year, I ALSO did V is for Vase, but I don't even care.
Here's the pin:
Supplies needed were a glass jar, chalky paint, acrylic paint, and twine. I had everything except the chalky paint, so yay. Here's what you do:
Paint the outside of the jar with the chalky paint.
If you use a wide mouth job, you can stick your hand inside for ease of painting.
Don't forget the bottom edge.
Dry it upside down. (Duh!)
Notice that one coat really isn't sufficient. Read in the directions that the pinner added a second coat, even though she said one coat looked fine, and she did it only a few minutes after painting the FIRST coat, because the chalky paint dries really fast.
Believe her and start the second coat after about fifteen minutes.
Find out that the paint was most certainly NOT dry and make a goobered up part on the jar. make a mental note to turn that part towards the back.
Add the second coat a few HOURS later.
Just to be REALLY REALLY SAFE, don't paint on the face until the next day.
Apply Alene's Tacky Glue around the mouth of the jar and wrap it with twine.
Cute. Springy. Eastery.
