Teach Me Tuesday: DIY Frosted Glass

teachmetuesday

Last year, I wrote a DIY tutorial on a project I found on Pinterest. It was pretty fun and very easy! And the results were awesome too. Here’s the tutorial below:

DIY Frosted Glass Vase

What you’ll need:
♡ Glass vase
♡ Krylon Frosted Glass Spray (I got this at Michaels)
♡ Rubberbands (about a half-inch thick)
♡ Newspaper
♡ Plastic gloves
♡ A well-ventilated area
♡ Optional, but very helpful: Krylon Sealer Spray

What to do:
1) Make sure your glass vase is free of dirt and fingerprints if possible.

2) Place rubberbands in a design of your choosing. I chose an alternate criss-cross. This is where the glass will not get frosted.

3) Go into a well-ventilated area with gloves on and newspaper at hand, preferably outside or on a porch. Turn vase upside down on newspaper. Follow the directions of the frosted glaze spray carefully. Even opening it. I had some issues opening the thing but once I followed directions, it helped. ☺ Be careful not to touch the exposed areas so as to not add fingerprints. Also, spray in a sweeping motion about 8″ away to prevent drip patterns.

4) The frost may look very light but trust me, it’s on there. Let dry for about 30 minutes before adding a second coat. Leave the ventilated area because that spray is no joke! Come back to vase, spray again, then dry for another 30 minutes.

5) Once dried all the way, remove rubberbands carefully. They will seem sticky but it’s ok. Now the optional thing to do next is spray a finishing glaze on the vase to seal in the rubberband pattern. If you do this, follow the spray directions and let dry for another 30 minutes to be safe.

6) Once everything is complete, now you can place it on the table for guest brownie points.😉

Here’s my before and after:

  1. Thanks for the tips about the spray itself and especially about the drips. I wanted to try this, but was afraid it wouldn’t come out uniform. Now, it seems too easy not to try!
