Stenciled Summer Drink Pitcher

Here in the South, we spend lots of time outdoors in the spring and summer, and nothing is more refreshing than an ice cold glass of sweet tea or lemonade!
 When Trish and I were invited to participate in the Martha Stewart Mother’s Day campaign, part of out project humbly accepted a position towards the back…our little glass, stenciled drink pitcher…
Now, it would have been just lovely and simple as is, but why do that when I could stencil it to match the adorable monogrammed plates I made! Here’s what I did…

Supplies Needed for Stenciled Pitcher:

Glass {smooth sided} pitcher
Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint {I used Jonquil}
Stencil {I used the Tapestry Collection stencils by Martha Stewart}
Stencil Tape
Martha Stewart foam pouncer tops
First, I prepped the glass pitcher per directions on paint by washing it and then drying completely. Next, I rubbed the area to be painted with a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol.
Then, I cut the stencil I chose out from the rest of the stencils and taped it onto the glass pitcher with stencil tape. Next, follow the directions on the sponge pouncer tops to get the paint started. Simply tap or “pounce” the sponge pouncer straight up and down all over the open stencil areas on the taped down stencil. The sponge allows the acrylic paint to adhere to the glass very well.
Remove the stencil, clean it off and retape it in the next position on the pitcher with the stencil tape and repeat the painting procedure. Simply, continue this until you have circled the entire pitcher!
What a great way to serve up your favorite ice cold drink on the porch on a lazy summer day!

    Love this idea! Does the paint stay on when you hand wash it?! Or did you use something on top of the paint to make it permanent?

    You are just SO creative and talented! This is a gorgeous way to personalize a plain glass pitcher! I can just SEE lemonade on a porch swing 😉 Thanks for sharing this at the {what’s shakin’ link party}!!
