Let’s dance. Description: 8 x 10 acrylic pour tray in teal, white, and blue flash—accented in rose gold. Decoupage honey bottle and a sea glass-colored mason jar with nautical rope. Inspirational Dollar Tree decor in the back and a dried sea star I had on hand.
How I made the tray
The tray is an 8 x 10 shelf decor from the dollar tree, prepped and turned upside down. I painted it white all over, using a matte white from Apple Barrel. I then did an acrylic pour using teal, white, and blue flash. Blue Flash from Folk Art is an iridescent that shifts purple. I mix the teal myself from white, blue, and yellow. All of the colors are mixed with Floetrol and water.
Once that was completely dry I painted the edges in metallic rose gold, and added the shell stencil in bright gold and rose gold. The handles are made from the wooden handles of leftover foam brushes. I painted the handles white and wrapped them in painters tape to dip the tips in rose gold. They are attached with hot glue.
I still need to fix some cracked and overpainted edges and give this an overall spray with clear protectant.
How I made the mason jar
I Spray painted an extra Kerr mason jar using Sea Glass paint in Aqua From Krylon. Then I used nautical rope from Dollar Tree to wind around the top of the jar. I made the handle by looping more rope through the neck and securing it with gold floral wire and needle-nosed pliers. The rope is hot glued to the jar for added security.
How I made the honey bottle
The honey bottle is one I salvaged from a school project from years ago. I used matte white and teal to give it a chalk paint appearance and rubbed out the letters to distress the bottle. Then I decoupaged some butterfly images from a napkin using Mod Podge. I also drew on some flowers and designs using chalk paint pens I had on hand. I’m not sure I love this yet, but it fit for the picture.
