Chalkboard paint + dishes = Awesome Halloween Decor!

With a little chalkboard paint and a few glass pieces from the Goodwill, I made the cutest Halloween decorations!
Items needed:
*Glasses/Carafe/vase (mine were .49 for the glasses and 1.49 for the carafe.  The vase I already had.)
*spray paint primer
*Chalkboard spray paint
*tape and newspaper

First, I taped the glasses and carafe.  I wanted a strip of chalkboard right across the top of the carafe, and I only wanted the bottom of the glasses painted.
I only had scotch tape, so that's what I used!  I wrapped newspaper around the caraffe to keep the paint from spraying all over, but was less careful on the glasses.  (Obviously!)

I primed, dried, and painted!  Super easy!  On the vase, I just flipped it upside-down and sprayed away!

I love how they turned out!  I can't wait to serve witches brew to my little goblins!

Great idea!! I am thinking of several glass pieces around my house that would be better with a little chalkboard paint. Found you through Someday Crafts/Whatever Goes Wed.

Cute! I’d love for you to link your project to Things I’ve Made Thursdays going on now until noon tomorrow. I’m trying something new this week- We have two sections to the party- one for kids’ things and one for “Anything”!! I think this post would be an awesome addition to the “Anything Goes” party!

Hope you’ll stop and link up!
