Sharpie Leaves On Glass

Sharpie Leaves on Glass ~ How to use a Sharpie on glass to draw a leaf, without coloring in the traditional way #SharpieCraft #FallCraft www.WithABlast.net

Sharpies are a lot of fun !  I have a couple of these small glass vases {actually more than a few, as I have a set which I use only for desserts as well}and wanted to pretty-up one or two of them by drawing Sharpie leaves on glass.

I have the permanent markers and not the oil based paint Sharpies - only because I can not find them ...yet! - therefore I won't wash it too vigorously or if some of the drawing bits do come off, I'll simply doodle again ;-)

Wondering what I mean by doodling ? Okay, first off, above is what I used :

- Small Glass Vase
- A Gold and Bronze Sharpie  {I chose the Bronze as it's more of a Fall color}
- Leaves I found in the garden

There are a few ways of how to "trace" the leaves, but I used some sellotape and taped the Leaves to the inside of the Vase - traced away on the outside and then I started doodling ! You know, doodling as in small round-and-round motions with the Sharpie, which then in turn gave the Leaves the final look - totally not planned..

I have to admit, using the permanent marker took a while - I doodled, waited for it to dry and repeated about 4 or 5 times, until I was satisfied with the final result.

Easy, no-fuss and so very relaxing ! No Picasso, but I like it and can already see a Christmas spin on this as well ;-)

  5. I have so many plain vases, this is an awesome idea! Just think of all the sharpie colors out there too so could get about any kind of look. This would make a great gift idea too! Thanks for sharing with us at Snickerdoodle Sunday Linda!

  14. Cute! An easy way to spruce up an otherwise simple little vase! I had no idea they make Sharpies in gold and bronze too. I might have a slight addiction to collecting Sharpie markers. Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday.
