Stenciled Vintage Glass Salt & Pepper Shaker Christmas Ornaments

November 10, 2019

 I found a little glass set of glass salt and pepper shakers with silverplate covers at the thrift shop last week.

I poured a little KRUD KUTTER Cleaner/Degreaser from the spray bottle in the bottom half of the shakers and filled the rest of the shaker with hot water.  I let them stand and soak for a while.  This removed all the KRUD inside.

I rubbed the covers with a little toothpaste to remove some of the tarnish.

I squeezed a small glob of  FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint in Licorice onto my paper plate, and chose a small stencil brush.  This paint will cure in time and be very durable on glass.

They are available online and in stores.  (Be sure to use your 40% off coupon).

Luckily these shakers had one very flat side, and some of the little adhesive stencils fit the area perfectly.  I love the deer stencil!

I stenciled in coats or layers on glass.  

Many light coats work much better on glass than few heavy coats.  It will take several to fill in the area.

If you screw up, use the Krud Kutter and remove the paint right away and start over.

It's really cute.

I added some faux snow to the shakers.

I used a jump ring to weave through two of the top holes on the shaker lid.  I added a small bell to the jump ring.  I added another jump ring through the first jump ring and added a snowflake button.

Here is a close up of the two jump rings, bell and button, along with a skinny ribbon tied onto the top jump ring.

Here is a finished ornament.

Pin for later!
