Update an Old Glass Container Using Spray Paint and Rubber Bands

3 Materials
30 Minutes

Everything looks better in gold, dont you think? I find that so many pieces can be brought back to life using simply some gold spray paint. These glass containers were old and the gold was scratched off, so I decided to update them with a fresh layer of gold spray paint. I didn't want them to all be plain gold, so used some rubber bands to achieve this look.

get a few rubber bands.

Put them nice and straight around the glass container, they can overlap or be straight lines, totally up to you.

then spray paint away in a well ventilated area

Once the spraypaint is dry, carefully remove the rubber bands. You should be left with nice and crisp lines.

Suggested materials:
  • Rubber bands
  • Glass jar
  • Gold spray paint

    What’s the easiest way to get the rubber bands off so not to mess up your paint?

  • Jenny Jenny on May 07, 2019

    I have tried this several times but when I try to take the rubber bands off, some of the paint comes off with the rubber bands so the lines aren’t clearly defined. What am I doing wrong?
