{Pinterest Project} Gold Striped Vases

{Pinterest Project} is a series where I actually make something I've pinned, usually putting my own spin on it. So far, Pinterest hasn't let me down with all the amazing ideas. Today's project originated from this pin, from Bliss Images and Beyond, and this pin, from a now defunct blog.

Start out with a collection of glass vessels...mine are all from the Dollar Store. I didn't even bother to clean them or take off the price tag. Nice. Thanks camera, for picking up all the details!

Wrap the glass with rubber bands until they are taut, making sure the bands lay flat against the glass. You don't want them loosey-goosey and able to move around. The pattern and number of bands is purely up to you.

The original pins used frosted glass spray, but I did that with my DIY Chevron Glasses, so I opted for Rustoleum Metallic Brass. Just place them upside down to keep the inside clean, and give them a few light coats....no primer necessary.

Nevermind my garage floor.
Unlike wall stripes, wait for the paint to dry completely before carefully cutting the bands and peeling them off the glass. How pretty are these...for $1 each!?

I had a twisted sister band on one vase, and those stripes didn't turn out as crisp. So unlike this pinsperation, I wouldn't recommend using string. Unless loosey-goosey stripes are what you're going for. They are perched on my Liberace-inspired Fall Mantel...and will likely make a lovely centerpiece for my Thanksgiving Table!

Another fast, cheap and easy project...perfect for our About An Hour party this Thursday! Hope you plan to link up. Has Pinterest got you cranking out any projects lately? Do you have any pinned ideas you'd like to see executed? Send them to me and maybe I'll be your guinea pig.

***Sharing this project with Sarah and Beth!***

  22. Wow!! I love this. Need to spray paint a couple letters and wanted to paint them yellow. I guess gold would work and then I can spray some vases! Lovely.
