Delta-Perm enamel Clear Gloss Glaze

Any brand of Gold spray paint

Flat latex wall paint, white or off-white


1 quart Kerr/mason jar, with screw top lid. These are available at
Michael's Craft stores.

1- glass voitive pot, shaped like a terra cotta pot

18" x 1" peice of fabric strip

1" or 2" foam brushes

Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Jar preparation: with a foam brush apply the first coat of the latex wall paint. Let dry overnight or for 8 hrs before applying the second and third coats. Apply the second and third coats of wall paint.

Spray paint the glass votive pot with gold spray paint, inside and out.
Set aside to dry.

Basecoat the jar and outside of the glass voitve pot with black. Do not paint the inside of the glass voitve pot with black. After you paint the outside black you will still be able to see the gold inside and it will give the pot an antiqued look!

Transfer the pattern onto the jar.
Base the hat with Buttermilk. Shade along top edge, bottom edge and on all folds with Sable Brown.

Base ruffle with white. Add 3 black dots at the top of each ruffle.

Shade all across the ruffles at the top with Slate Grey.

Heart: base blue section with Uniform Blue. Shade outer edges with Black. Add white dots.

Red stripes: base with Santa Red. Shade edges of stripes with Black Plum.
White stripes: base with white. Shade edges with Black Plum.

Using a dry stencil brush and white, add a highlight down the center of the stripes and blue section.

Hat strings, and "GIVE THANKS" paint on with Black.

With an old toothbrush spatter entire jar and glass votive pot with white.

To finish:
Using a foam brush apply the Delta-perm enamel Clear Gloss Glaze to the entire jar and glass votive pot.
