DIY: Lucky Milk Glass

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. 
Doily banner optional!

Lucky Milk Glass


Glass bottle

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. 




  1. These are cute but oh so not Irish. These are four leaf clovers, in Ireland we do shamrocks! Just for next time :)

    1. haha, thanks for the heads up! You're totally right that shamrocks are more Irish - I got a little ambitious and added a fourth leaf:)

    2. Very very pretty though! I love your blog :)

  2. This is so incredibly cute and simple laura! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. super super cute :) and you know i love the 4-leaf, irish or not! ;)

  4. I love, love, LOVE this project. Even a craft-impaired gal like me could probably pull this off! The doily banner is especially lovely, I would love to use a different stencil; and make one for a baby shower I am organizing!

  5. "Do not do this in your tiny apartment's kitchen thinking 'well ventilated' means 'open a window.'"

    So that's why it smelled like that when I got home.
