Did you know you could transform an ordinary thrift store glass vase into an extraordinary Thanksgiving centerpiece? Follow along our easy breezy tutorial to learn how.

imageStep 1: Mix glass paint (available in craft stores) and a splash of water in separate cups. This will help the paint glide smoothly into the vase.

imageStep 2: Pour one paint color at a time into the vase, turning the vase at an angle to spread in swirl design.


imageStep Step 3: Allow 15 minutes to dry between each color you’re using.


imageStep 4: After all paint colors have been applied and inside of vase is covered, use sponge brush to clean lip of vase, then place vase upside down on a paper plate to dry. We recommend drying for 24 hours.


imageStep 5: Heat your oven to 300F. Place vase on cookie sheet and bake for 45 minutes. (Baking times may vary with different brands of glass paint). Remove from oven and let cool.

imageStep 6: Fill vase with water, add your favorite blooms, and admire your creation!

Wonderful idea for children & grandchildren to help create. Then, they can give their pieces of artwork to family members, friends, etc. Miss Paula Deen, you have been in my prayers. No one, except you, will EVER know what you have been through. I can ONLY imagine. I have wanted to meet you for many years. Many. Odd, but my lovely daughter, age 19 now, was the one who first MADE me watch you on TV. She was a doll. So excited about you!! She said, "Mom, you gotta' get in here and see this lady, named Paula! She is so nice & she can really cook some good country food like what we like!!" I sat down. I watched you nearly every single day with my daughter. We'd both try to guess what you were going to make before you'd say. You were, and still are, a HUGE part of our lives.. We THANK YOU for that. You are on this Hoosiers, *Bucket List.*
