I would love to see what you are inspired to make! Directions for these Jars/Vases: White Vase I used high gloss white spray paint on this basic clear glass vase I had in my cupboard. Make sure you always spray paint in a well ventilated area and use caution. Use short and even bursts of paint to get an even coat and avoid drips. Grey "Joy" Vase I used a hot glue to write the word "Joy" on this smooth Ball jar I bought at Target. Other words could be, love, peace, dance, believe, etc. Once the hot glue is dry, in short bursts and an even coat spray paint the jar. Again, be sure to do this in a well ventilated area, protecting your surfaces from over spray. The paint I used was Winter Grey. It may be best to do several thin coats to get the best coverage. Here are the smooth Ball Jars: http://amzn.to/18oxr6Z Here is the grey spray paint I used: http://amzn.to/17XSXPl Metallic Garland Vase I bought an acrylic cup and a $2 metallic ball garland from Target. Use the hot glue and attach the garland well along the bottom of the cup. If there are any droopy spots add more glue. Twirl the cup and glue the garland along the cup as you go. Be sure to glue the garland well along the top of the cup. Use scissors to cut the garland and glue the end to create a clean finish. Thank you for watching! *This is not a sponsored video.

Subscribe for WEEKLY Crafty Tutorials and Fun Videos! I was on a date night with my husband at the Americana in Glendale and saw these stars in the Anthropologie store. I thought they looked cool and easy to duplicate, so here is my attempt! They are now above my bed, very inexpensive and easy decorating!

Be sure to protect the surface you are cutting on! AND be very careful when using box cutters - safety first! Then I used the rubber bands to make some interesting line work on the star. I tried to make it even all the way around, just do what you like and think looks good! There is no wrong way. Then I used mostly the gold paint with touches of the other colors just to add some dimension. I added it roughly, tried to get the rubber bands mostly covered. Let it dry completely. I just used a hammer and some small nails to attach them to the wall! *This contains affiliate links to make it easy for you to find things. THANK YOU!
