Painted Vase

#FindTheBeauty and make your mark on an ordinary clear, glass container! The act of making art has many benefits including reducing stress and giving you a sense of accomplishment, which is invaluable during this pandemic (Read more about benefits here). Clear glass containers such as mason jars, plain vases, bottles, or even a pickle or condiment jar may be used. You can paint the inside or outside of the jar with a drip technique or using a brush. The jar is then dried in an oven and will be used for an upcoming project on our blog! Each video instructional session ends with a meditation based on we are all BEAUTIFUL and finding the BEAUTY WITHIN! Be sure to take a photo of your finished project and share it with us using #FindTheBeauty or enter it in our Find the Beauty contest on Facebook by emailing it to Learn more about the contest here.

Items Needed:

  • Clean, empty, clear glass jar, bottle or vase

  • Food coloring

  • Mod Podge or school glue

  • A tray or sheet pan covered in foil or parchment paper so you don't ruin your pan!

  • Small dishes to mix glue in (be sure to wash in hot water immediately) or use old margarine containers that you can reuse for non-food

  • Paintbrushes (We like these basic brushes)

  • Oven


Mix food coloring into Mod Podge or glue with water added in small bowls. Paint either the inside or the outside of the glass vessel, depending on glass and the intricacy. For example, a mason jar or pickle jar works well to paint on the inside, while narrow vases are better to paint on the outside. May use a combination of brush and drip techniques. Bake at lowest oven setting for 10 minutes (typically 170 degrees), then turn and bake another 20-30 minutes.
