The do-it-yourselfers from forthemakers.com show us how to cheer up a tablescape with a dose of color.
Tools and Materials:
- Glass votives (make sure they’re clean and free of debris)
- Acrylic paint
- Small dish or paint palette
- Paint brush
- Cup of water
- Paper towel
- Tealight candles
First, prepare a paint palette with bright colors in tonal shades. Dip your paint brush into the acrylic paint and begin painting on the inside of the glass.
Step 2: Mix white acrylic paint into your chosen colors to create complementary shades.
Layer colors on top of one another to create an abstract floral look.
Once you have the colors just as you like, allow it to dry fully. Once dry, paint the entire inside with white acrylic paint.
Allow to dry completely before placing a tealight candle inside. Enjoy the glow!
