Transform a jar into a decorated vase!!

The children are back at school after the May half term and this week has gone like lightening ... the childrens social lives are very busy and today has been another busy day so tonight it was lovely to sit down, relax and watch Britains Got Talent with the children.   Soooo glad that a very deserving Collabro won it.  They were amazing .. would love to see them sing live.   Although Darcy was very good too ... did wonder if he was actually going to manage to get out of that one tonight but very cool and collected as always! 
After having some withdrawals symptoms from the lack of time to do much crafting this week I  decided to fit in a little crafting this afternoon ... this is so quick and easy to do and is a great way to turn a plain old jar into a really nice little vase to either give flowers to someone or to decorate the home. 
All you need is a Jar, a glue gun and some spray paint!!
First of all draw onto the jar using a felt tip pen the design (in this case a heart), or the lettering , that you want on your vase and then, using a glue gun,  go over the top of the template that you have drawn on the jar so that the glue is raised above the glass surface as shown above.
Once the glue is dry ... spray paint the jar (all over).   I would suggest that this is best done outside as it can get a little messy to say the least.
Allow the spray paint to dry and you have the finished result ready to use ...
If you decide to have a go at this then please leave us a comment to let us know how your vase turned out.
