Sharpie Leaves on Glass

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.

At the moment I only 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 is 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!

Pretty! My husband recently got me a set of 48-sharpies and I have been going crazy using them. Great to have you partying with us at Wake Up Wednesdays.

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.
