Sweet and simple, that's the way I like it.
In honor of March being National Craft Month, I am thinking of sharing some easy peasy DIYs with you each week. Let's kick this week off (er, end it?) with a really quick and adorable St. Patrick's Day DIY.

Lucky Milk Glass
Craft Paint - I used Martha Stewart's paint line in Metallic Yellow Gold
White Gloss Spray Paint
Tape - I ran out of regular tape so I used some Washi tape. Stylin'!
Stencil - I made my own by cutting out a four leaf clover from cardstock.
Step 1: I used this DIY Milk Glass tutorial that I found on Ruffled. Make sure your jar is clean and use spray paint in a well ventilated area. Do not do this in your tiny apartment's kitchen thinking "well ventilated" means "open a window."
Go outside, lovelies.
Spray two even coats and let dry. I let my little jar dry for an hour.
Step 2: Tape your stencil to your jar. Paint away! It's not going to come out perfect because you're painting on a curved surface, but you can always go in afterwards and fix any smudges with a smaller paint brush.
Step 3: Peel off your stencil, fix any smudges, and dance the Irish Jig. You're done. I love a three-step DIY.
I had a lot of smudges. Ah well, you know I love imperfections!
A little St. Patrick's Day inspiration makes me all warm inside. Or it could be the Guinness.
