Super easy DIY Steps – 

  1. Clean and dry your glass
  2. Take it outside – make sure the temperature is 65º – 90ºF
  3. Shake the can well and frequently
  4. Hold can 10″ – 12″ away from your project
  5. Apply thin coats.
  6. Re-coat within 1 hour or after 24 hours (be sure to follow this).

As always, be sure to follow the instructions on the spray can. 

For my project I recycled several spaghetti sauce jars but you can spray paint anything. Sometimes I find glass containers at Goodwill or yard sales that would benefit from these beautiful colors.

Thrifty Tip: All of my hydrangeas are doing great this year. I grabbed a few of the white oakleaf hydrangeas and they look cottage-y perfect in my faux milk glass. Be sure to check out my favorite plants<<–click, I love being able to grab my shears and have fresh blooms for any occasion. It doesn’t get any cheaper than flowers from your own garden.

  1. Can this paint be used on a glass pendant lampshade ?

  2. I would be interested in knowing where the milk paint can be purchased also.

  3. Gorgeous!!! Can you tell me where you purchased the paint? I’ve looked online at Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, Hobby Lobby and Michael’s and nobody has it listed. I have a great collection of jars I would love to do this with. Great idea!
    Thanks!

  4. I just love your outdoor space!!! The old window right down to the croquet set you have displayed! Just stunning!! I can’t wait to try the spray paint either…. that’s if it has hit the shores here in Australia!

  5. As always, your stuff looks fabulous!! What would be the difference with spray painting a glass jar using regular spray paint, vs this type ? I have sprayed a jar using Rustoleum’s spray paint in the past.

  6. Pinned!

    Love painted glass jars Debbie. Yours look fabulous!
