Let's get some glass jar or a vase, 2 colors of paint and of course tape and you are good to go. Love to turn simple jars to stunning vases. I am more then positive that this jar will work for me all year round even with my Christmas decor. You can read more about my ideas HERE
How to Make Buffalo Check Vase
To have our buffalo check pattern show nicely I decided to spray paint my jar white.
My background is dry and it is time to start to lay out a pattern. I like diagonal stripes.ween Pressing them down smoothly on the glass to create a seal. Use a piece of tape as a spacer in betstripes. This is more efficient than measuring and marking spaces with a pencil.
Make sure tape is nicely attached to your jar to prevent paint leaks.
Paint your stripes with light color. As you can see I chose to paint with gold. Be sure not to over saturate your paint brush. A few light coats can help with bleeding.
Make sure to wait till paint dries before you remove your tape strips. It actually looks pretty good!
Now it is time to make stripes going other direction. Press again your painters tape on the glass . Use a piece of tape as a spacer
When all is nicely attached again paint your stripes same light color as the one you just made
All is dry now and and it is time to define out buffalo check pattern by simply painting cris cross spaces with darker shade of your base color as it shows below
It is super easy way to make your full proof Buffalo check patten. Hope that I inspired you to have fun with that pattern
Absolutely love that patten in the diagonal version
