Hello my friends!
I am starting to feel a bit better finally. Still a bit weak and a little achy, but this bug really bit me in the butt. For a full week I was a sleeping, sweating, moaning, NyQuil-popping mess.
Needless to say I got zero accomplished.
Plus Topher and I are headed to Kansas City this weekend for my birthday, so I won’t be doing any catching up then either. A girl only turns 40 once right?
So we will be doing a little vintage shopping and eating really unhealthy (but yummy) food and having a fun weekend alone. The kid will be home hanging out with friends.
My parents will be housesitting the furbabies.
I decided to ease back into things with a fun and easy craft for you today! This is an inexpensive one that is fun to bring the kids in on. These Nail Polish Marbled Vases are also a great gift.
Here’s what you need:
- A vase, mug or anything made of glass (mine came from Dollar Tree).
- White Satin Spray Paint (I used Rustoleum’s Universal Satin Paint and Primer)
- Inexpensive nail polish (Dollar Tree)
- A plastic bucket (mine came from Dollar Tree)
I started with these vases and a mug from Dollar Tree.
I took my pieces and gave them two coats of this
Here’s what they looked like afterward.
After they dried thoroughly, I filled my first bucket up 3/4 of the way with water.
I then poured in half a bottle of nail polish. The polish will float.
Get a paper plate or some layered paper towels to lay your piece on once you have dipped them. I then quickly submerged my vase and them laid it on the plate. Just set it to dry for about 15 minutes.
I love how the marbled effect is different on all of the pieces that I did!
