Happy Start of Another Beautiful Week, Lovelies! 🌿
I would like to share a super simple DIY Project that I found online using jars and bottles and painting them with acrylics mixed with baking soda to create a terracotta texture.
All You Need:
Old jars and bottles
Little tips that I want to share:
🌾 Choose jars or bottles that has unique shapes, heights, sizes and ridges for a more unique-looking vase.
🌾 Allow to dry your first coat completely before doing another one to avoid clumping. Mine was coated twice.
🌾 For every half a cup of paint, I put a teaspoon of baking soda, but you can add more or less depending on how textured you want it to be. The more baking soda, the more texture you get.
🌾 You can use any acrylic paint colours you want. Sky’s the limit.
🌾 Feel free to change your mind during application if you don’t like the colour. Acrylics are water-based paints anyway, so just wipe or wash the paint off then dry completely before starting over again, if you change your mind.
🌾 Spray seal to make your paint more permanent. I didn’t seal mine before the video because I was too excited to put my flowers in, but I will!
🌾 Don’t fuss about the process too much. It’s not meant to be perfect. It’s meant to be enjoyed. Trial and error is part of the fun. I find the whole process quite meditating, actually.
I hope this inspires you to have fun creating something beautiful as well. Any questions regarding this project, feel free to ask anytime. 🍃
