I have been seeing these “rubber band” spray paint vases on Pinterest for a long time, so I decided to try it this morning. I was frustrated with a heart crochet rug disaster, so I needed something fun to brighten my spirits.
Supplies you will need:
- rubber bands
- spray paint
- glass containers
- drop cloth, or spray box
- drying rack
I collected my supplies, I chose a peanut butter jar, bell jar and 2 cylinder glasses. I placed everything on a drying rack over a drop cloth, applied the rubber bands in random places, and sprayed the containers facing down, I did not want any paint to get inside. I allowed the paint to dry for 3 hours, and when I checked them, everything was very dry. I pulled the bands off gently and the project is done!
I had a few problems, but I know what I did wrong. What I would do different:
- not use a bell jar, the paint came off of the words
- spray lighter coats, the thickness of the paint made it flake on the edges
- apply more rubber bands, I think I used too few
I would consider this project a success, I like, not love, the way it came out, and I think it will look great as a centerpiece at a dinner party. I will try this project again, I would like a taller piece for the center of the arrangement.
Try this project and post your pictures, I would love to see your creations 🙂
