In spite of my mother’s green oatmeal, I grew up loving St. Patrick’s Day. So today’s “take a break” is all about creating some festive items for Sunday, March 17, St. Patrick’s Day 2013.
Pour Painting Rainbow Vases, Glasses: Since there’s the lovely myth of the pot of gold guarded by the leprechaun at the end of the rainbow, you can either use the colors of the rainbow or various shades of green. Since this is basically dripping acrylic paints over glass; if you want to use these for drinking, make sure you seal off the top so no liquid gets into it. You can use this same technique to make some fun votives.
Quick St. Patrick’s Day Glassware: Check out your local Dollar Store for some peel and window stick “clings.” These are reusable, so don’t throw away the sheet they come on. Pick up some cheap glassware, peel off the clings and attach to the glass. Add some ribbon if you like.
