Faux Jadeite Shamrocks

faux jadeite shamrocks

This project is a quick and easy one.  I have to say thanks to Jenna of Rain On A Tin Roof for sharing her faux jadeite technique last fall.  I have made a couple of glass pieces but this idea came about after drinking some bottled water and then noticing the bottom of the bottle was shaped like a shamrock!

Once the bottle is empty, simple cut the bottom off.  
Bottles are made of very thin plastic these days and cutting is very easy.

This is the paint you'll need:  Krylon Pistachio in satin.  
Just give each bottle end a coat or two and let dry.  That's it!

I used these as bowl fillers in an ironstone  bowl with moss.

This is a super easy project and one that gives beautiful results for such little effort!  My kind of project :)

Don't forget to check back on Mondays for our Something To Talk About link party.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!!

  2. Angie, you are beyond! This is so awesome! You kill me all the time with your "on a whim" ideas. It would have taken me 2 years to figure something like this out. I love it. I will definitely be pinning and sharing. Hugs sweet girl, you're awesome. Coco
