I have to admit, I’ve never actually tried glass painting before, and I knew I would need to do some research before trying it out for myself. There are so many different effects you can achieve using glass paints and vases. You can find inexpensive glass at the dollar store or even in the top shelf of your kitchen cabinets!

Once he’s used them once or twice, I wash them out and hide them in hard to reach cabinets. Once you’ve gathered your extra glass containers and pretty paints check out some of these tutorials for design ideas and tips.When your projects are complete feel free to post pictures of your new glass decor in the comment section!
