Spray-Paint Face Lift

14 May

Spray paint is a fun way to make old things look new! Here is a ceramic swan we bought for twenty five cents at a thrift shop.

I added a coat of spray paint, a gemstone eye, and a touch of nail polish for the bill. Now it looks perfect in my bathroom. And it’s a great place to store cotton balls.

Once we got started, we found other objects to transform with spray paint too. We’ll post some of those later!

Materials Needed:

0ld objects

spray paint

nail polish

gemstones

 

Directions:

1. Clean object before painting. Allow to dry.

2. Add coat of spray paint following directions on can.

3. When paint is dry, add details. I used nail polish to paint the bill, and I glued a plastic gemstone on for the eye.

This is a fast and easy craft. An adult should help with spray painting. We used the back of my old science project board to  protect other surfaces from paint. This worked great!
