Okay, I have been a little obsessed with decorating glass objects lately. This is my third glass project in as many weeks. I promise I will stop – right after I complete one for Christmas… and maybe Easter also. My inspiration for this piece came after I saw similar Fall decor platter at Hobby Lobby with gold leaves and a green background.
I started with a plain glass platter I picked up from Wal-mart. I then printed a design in reverse and taped it to the front of the platter.
Next I used Liquid Leaf and a small paintbrush to trace the design onto the back of the platter.
I then sprayed about 3 thin coats of Krylon Metallic spray paint in Sparkling Canyon onto the back of the platter and finished it off with a coat of Valspar Clear Gloss spray paint.
Because I used paint supplies that I already had on hand, the only costs involved was the $4 platter from Wal-mart. I plan to look for glass plates and platters at the thrift store to be able to do more of these projects in the future at an even less expensive cost.
