How are you my friends? (I’m announcing the winner of Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats Cookbooks Monday morning, ck back to see if you won!) Today I’ve got a quick summer project, if you have a second…I’ll show you!
These pretty DIY fishing floats are everywhere this summer and I’m going to tell you why…they are sooo easy to make with glass Christmas ornaments!
I’m drawn to soft blues and greens as you know…
To make these pretty glass “fishing floats”, I used the brand new Americana Chalky Finish paint for GLASS! (how exciting!) I mixed a drop or two of the paint w/ water (so this won’t take up lots of your paint…you’ll have extra to do other projects!!!)
***I used colors Serene & Vintage***
When the mixture was pourable, I just poured it into the glass balls!
And swirled it around and around!
There was excess paint in the bottom so I poured the majority of it into another glass ball…
The Chalky Finish Paint mixed with water left some of the glass transparent with just a wash of color and then there were other parts of the glass ball that had more opaque coloring. (If I found the color to be too saturated, I added a bit more water and swirled a little more!)
I left these to dry for a few hours with the openings facing a fan…because I was in a hurry to see how they looked!
I love them in my beachy centerpiece but really, and I do hate to bring up the C word—>but I love the dreamy colors so much that I’m going to do some more of these for my Christmas tree! (sorry about bringing up Christmas…now let’s get back to the season at hand! )
And speaking of summer, how’s your’s going? Have you done any gardening or summer decorating or pray tell…any summer projects?!
Sending love ~ xo
