Don't think you're artistic enough to craft with glass? Making crafts with glass can be very simple. You don't need glass blowing knowledge or have to know everything there is to know about glass. All you need is some creativity and basic craft supplies. Take a plain glass vase and visualize what it can become, or jazz up a plain ornament with paint or embellishments.
You can easily add some pizzazz to plain, boring glass by gluing festive doodads to it. However, normal school glue will not work very well. If you wish to beautify your glass by gluing decorations to it consider using one of the following items:
If you wish to add beautiful designs to glass using paint you will need to use the proper kind of paint. Consider using one of the following kinds:
Please be sure to read all directions before using any paint on glass. Some paints require a primer and some don't. Some need to be varnished and others don't. So to create a truly stunning glass diy craft - read all directions first.
Glass is fragile and can break easily so you must be careful any time you craft with it. Keep these things in mind:
And if the glass does break while you are crafting, drop everything and thoroughly clean up all broken pieces. Try not to miss any tiny shards that could cut you.
If you do get cut, clean it and take proper medical care. If stitches are needed then leave your craft and get yourself to the hospital. Safety always comes first.
I never, ever, in a million years thought I would make glass diy crafts. But I do and I enjoy it. Why don't you give it a try? Just remember: safety, proper materials, read all directions, creativity, imagination and have fun.
Oh! This vase is such a bore!
I want a vase I can adore.
It just needs something more,
to make it something galore.
