Have you ever tried a project that you’ve seen on social media and … it ended up being a complete fail? I’m sure we all did at some point. Well, this one is the opposite… I am Karen Crossen and I love looking at projects and decor pics on Pinterest! I have several projects that have been started, some that I bought all the supplies and never made and some that have been utter failures!! But, when I saw this project, I knew that I could do it with a little help from Tattered Angels!! And yes, it was successful, easy and very changeable! I made this succulents in a jar piece for my basement, but it could be used in the bathroom, your art room or anywhere!
Karen used the following:
Tattered Angels Color Wash Paint in Pewter-Faux Finish
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Partridge in a Pear Tree
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Java
7gypsies Achitextures Rub-ons – Grow
2×6 piece of wood and a Ball Jar
moss, fake succulent plants, adjustable metal hose clamp, nail, metal picture hanger
hammer, screws, screwdriver, paint brush, cloth
I started with piece of 2×6 wood from Home Depot. They will cut the pieces for you!
Then it is time to distress the wood! Use a hammer and beat up the wood!
Hammer in screws sideways, hit it with the hammer head, hit a screwdriver with a hammer into the wood! Go crazy!
Fist of all, cover the entire piece of wood with the Color Wash Paint in sections and wipe off the excess. Let it dry.
Then wipe on Glimmer Mist Partridge in a Pear Tree lightly over the wash. (I spilled the bottle, it was so sad!)
Add Glimmer Glaze in Java over the distressed pieces, and wipe it off gently. Let the whole piece dry.
When the piece is dry, use the 7gypsies Architextures Rub-ons.
I just loved the way these flower rub-ons look on the wood!
Place them randomly around the wood. Then unscrew the pipe clamp and nail it onto the wood board.
Tighten it around the neck of the ball jar!
Fill the jar with moss. Top it off with plastic succulents.
You could also put this in the bathroom and fill it with cotton balls or your toothbrush!
Arrange the plastic succulents in the jar.
I tried a couple of different of arrangements until I found the one I liked!
Now all you need to do is hang up your Pinterest Project and enjoy!
