How to Easily Cut Glass Jars Using Water & Oil

This cool trick actually lets you cut through glass without ever taking a blade or saw to the glass. Confusing, right? How is that even possible? Well, get ready, because we’re going to show you the trick below that cuts through glass using OIL. To pull off this incredibly cool project, you’ll need a few tools: YOU’LL NEED – Water – Oil (sunflower oil or motor oil) – Box Cutter Razor (or any piece of metal) – Glass Jar – Small Blowtorch – Metal Bowl – Pliers STEP 1: Fill the glass jar with water, as high as you would like the cut to be. It should be noted that the thicker the glass is, the larger the piece of hot metal should be. Also, be very careful throughout this whole process!

DIY Painted Glass Bottle Vases. Creating something new from things that are going to end up in the garbage is always so rewarding.

DIY Painted Glass Bottle Vases

It takes the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” to a whole new level. Making your own DIY Painted Glass Bottle Vases are a perfect example of that concept! They are as easy as pie and require just 2 supplies — glass bottles and paint. If you know my mom, other than her plants, you know how much my mom loves her 1980’s Italian ceramics.

You will find her collection throughout the house. Growing up, you better have been very careful not to touch… actually not to get too close to her lovely ceramics. I could NOT think of a great title for this tutorial… everything I wrote sounded dumb.

So for lack of better words I spray painted glass jars before I did it, I wrote words on them with my HOT GLUE gun! This seriously is the EASIEST tutorial ever…it doesn’t really even need explaining BUT I will tell you how I did it anyway :) I loved the dainty glass bottle and vintage keys!

But for $30 I quickly looked the other way….I Looked right into my grandmas hands where she picked it up and bought it! GRANDMA – really? You have no idea how happy I am with the way this project turned out.

I can’t wait to make more! It started all with the wish of having a lid for my recycled tins. Hello all, thanks for all the nice compliments on the courtyard project!

I’m going a little crazy this week coordinating all the details for our big weekend over at our Alma House charity project which starts on Friday. There are three rooms to tackle and so much to do! It may get a little bit slow around here this week, but I’ll have a lot of exciting things to reveal next week. I was going through some pics yesterday and completely forgot to post this super simple DIY project. Are you looking for a way to enhance your tablescape without breaking the bank?

Well, here is your solution… cheap glassware, a little paint, plus fancy frosted glass finish and tada, you have a perfectly personalized glass jar… great for any occasion!

Clean your paintable glass surface with rubbing alcohol before you start taping and painting! Tape off the area of your glass that won’t be painted with your colored paint… Allt du behöver är flaskor (gamla glöggflaskor är t ex perfekta!)

, garn, klister (t ex decoupagelim eller Mod Podge) och en sax. Det blir lite kladdigt men det är det värt! Idén har jag inte hittat på själv utan jag fann inspiration på några olika ställen, t ex Penelope and Pip, Laura Parke (a girl who makes) och Style Me Pretty. Sedan gjorde jag lite som jag själv tyckte, som vanligt. Detta pyssel gav mersmak och jag kunde nästan inte sluta. Och visst är det vackert med ranunkler? With Spring peeking right around the corner, it’s time to think about purging.

Don’t even get me started on my pantry project… Instead of purging old condiment jars and bottles, repurpose with a bit of paint to transform them into bud vases in sweet shades of trendy emerald green. It’s the perfect seasonal display to update a mantle, kitchen table, nightstand, or windowsill. This post was another commissioned piece for THIS magazine. For bottles: jam jar, soda bottles, vinegar bottle, syrup bottle. Missy. This month’s Michaels Maker’s challenge is all about Mother’s Day!

I decided to do a “favorite things” jar for my mother and grandmother – for my mother-in-law I decided to turn a mason jar into a vase using some flowers to match her living room!

Let completely dry.

Punch a hole in the tags and tie with your favorite trimmings. So many food items come in glass jars of varying shapes and sizes. These make great containers for recycling into a new and decorative home accent. I have covered jars in paper, with decoupage, and covered them with birch bark. I have also painted them on the outside for a nice matte finish. However, I had never tried the painting technique that The Latest Find used for creating a nice glossy and polished finish on her recycled jars. She squirted paint into the jar and swirled it around making a nice coating to the inside.

Hello, my name is Tiffany and I am still a spray paint addict! I am so much an addict, my friends bring over glass vases they aren't going to use anymore and ask me to spray paint them so they will use them! I have noticed a huge explosion of color lately and if you open Pinterest, on any page you will see color blocking. I like the look of it... Hello fans!

We are sure that many people have a lot of empty wine bottles waiting to toss them in the trash. However, why not take advantage and create something unusual? If you enjoy wine, probably in your home you have a lot of empty bottles. Today we do not want to give emphasis the number of wine bottles that we have at home and how to display them, but we want to emphasize the ideas of those who are with creative spirit and want to use glass bottles in interesting ways. Take advantage of the creative recycling of old bottles and with a little imagination make useful or decorative items for your home. You can play with light bulbs, various lamps and get interesting lamps. Tags: diy centerpiece, glass wine bottles, Recycle, recycling wine bottles, wine bottle centerpiece.
