DIY: Gold Dipped Cotton Ball Jar

by - July 16, 2013


My sister recently moved to the city and in helping her decorate her apartment, I made this gold dipped cotton ball jar. I love the combination of the gold and glass and the pop of white from the fluffy cotton balls adds the perfect contrast. It only took a few steps to achieve and leaves a lasting impression.

What you'll need:
-Cotton ball jar (I got mine at Macy’s here)
-Martha Stewart’s glass paint
-Painter’s tape
-Foam paint brush

1. Using the painter’s tape, tape off the area you would like to paint.

2. Using the foam paint brush and paint, begin painting the jar. Between each coat, let the paint dry for 10 minutes. Keep adding coats until you get the desired coverage. I used 4-5 coats.

3. Once done painting, remove painter’s tape and let air dry.

The final product!
