P.S. I Made This…Faux Pottery

Want a great gift idea that you can make yourself in a snap?  Get inspired by high-end porcelain pottery and create your own.  It’s the perfect way to re-purpose empty cans, bottles, containers without dropping a small fortune on pretty porcelain.  To create, paint your desired pattern onto the can or bottle with puff paint.

You can create shapes or stick with a simple line-and-dot pattern.  Once the puff paint has dried, use white matte spray paint (spray outdoors or in a ventilated area) over the entire can or bottle and let it dry.

Repeat this step for a second coat if necessary. The can or bottle should have a smooth coating.  Once designs are dried completely on you’ll be ready to fill your new “vases” with flowers or simply display them around the house as accent pieces.
