Mother’s Day is around the corner and I always try to do something handmade for my Mom and Mother-in-law. This year I decide to have the kids do Hand Painted Salt and Pepper Shakers. The girls love to paint and everyone can always use salt and pepper shakers.
What you will need:
- Salt and Pepper Shakers
- Craft Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Spray Sealer/Finisher
Wash the Salt and Pepper Shakers, working on the clean surface is best!
Design your picture; I had my girls practice on paper first so they had an idea of what they were painting. The Salt and Pepper shakers are a small area so it helped them get familiar with the paint strokes.
Paint the Salt and Pepper Shakers! We decided to paint small flowers on each side. This gave it a little decorations but wasn’t to over bearing.
My daughters were so excited about their work! I had my girls paint one side each of the shakers and I painted their initials on the side they painted.
Spray an acrylic sealer/finisher to assure the paint will not wash off. I sprayed two coats. I have to admit that I grabbed the wrong sealer, a matte one and a clear or glossy would have been a better choice, oops!
The finished Handed Painted Salt and Pepper Shakers, all they need now is some salt and pepper. I have to say I was really pleased with how the salt and pepper shakers turned out!
I think that my Mom and Mother-in-law will be excited to receive this year’s hand painted Mother’s Day gifts this year! (To my Mom’s, Sorry that you are getting a sneak peak at your gifts this year!)
