Sumedha here, hope you all are doing good.
Today I am here to share an amazing table decor tutorial that will help you spruce up your living/dining area. It’s going to be a wonderful Christmas and New Year decor with some shine and shimmer. I have used the multi surface paints in this project.
The table decor includes a glass jar upcycled into a storage container for sweets and an old mason jar into a festive planter to go with the theme and a coordinating coaster.
Lets begin! I had a cute octagonal glass jar in my cupboard since long and I wanted to upcycle it and flaunt it as a centerpiece décor.
I started by applying the Snow Dove Multi surface paint directly on the glass jar. I did this after cleaning the surface with alcohol to ensure there was no dust on the outer surface. There is no need to apply any gesso here.
I didn’t want to cover the entire jar with paint as I wanted the inside contents of the jar to peep through. I added a washi tape at the rim to avoid going overboard with my paint. I covered the lid entirely with the Snow Dove paint.
Keeping the festivities in mind I wanted to add shimmer to my project. I added a layer of Golden Glaze metallic paint on the white base and with the help of a Lattice stencil. That created a shimmery background with White and gold.
I was very happy with the background. Next step was to decoupage. I had some beautiful floral cutouts in my stash which I decided to use for this project. I used Decoupage matt glue to adhere the cutouts to my jar.
I varnished the whole painted surface with Little Birdie Decor varnish- Matt. I also added a clay border with epoxy clay and painted the clay embellishment with Snow Dove color to merge with the background. I painted the knob of the lid with Golden Glaze metallic paint.
I have used Metallic Wax-Antique Gold to highlight the nook & crannies of my clay embellishment.
I also decided to upcycle and old mason jar and a MDF coaster to go with the jar. I followed the same steps as done with the jar. Coated the MDF coaster with Snow Dove multi surface paint on both the sides.
Added a layer of Golden glaze metallic paint with a flat brush.
