Festive and Colorful Halloween Goblets

Posted by DecoArt on Oct 7th 2018

Combine glass jars and glass candleholders into colorful goblets painted with Americana® Gloss Enamels™.


    • 1/2" flat brush
    • glass jars
    • cardboard box
    • E6000 Glue
    • clean cloth and warm soapy water
    • glass candleholder



    Allow paint to dry between each application.

    1. Wash and dry the glass items to remove dust and oil from the surface.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Paint each section of the candleholders with a different color. (I used Purple Cow, Lavender, Citron Green, Bright Orange, and Black.)  Use a soft flat brush to add light layers of paint to the glass surface. 
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Paint the glass jars with one color of paint. To minimize streaks and brush-strokes, use a soft flat brush to add multiple light layers of paint to the surface. Let the paint dry between each application.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Place the glass items in a box or on a covered surface to splatter them with Glorious Gold (Metallic). ( I used a variety of brushes and a toothbrush to achieve different-sized splatter marks). Dip the brush in paint and then flick the brush toward the surface to be splattered.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Glue the cup to the candleholder base using E6000 Glue.
