So…I have a dough bowl that I just love, but don’t always know how to use it in my decor. I really want to fill it to match each holiday/occasion but I don’t want to break the bank each time a new holiday rolls around!! Well, sometimes creativity is born out of necessity!! Let me show you how I decided to paint grapevine balls for a dough bowl!!!
I found these beauties at Ross for $6.99 and I thought that was a deal since I was getting so many!!
Let’s Change Things Up!!
I love the pink, but it’s just not the color I’m needing at the moment. I’ve never met many things I couldn’t spray paint (seriously, I’ve even spray painted tissue paper!!) and these grapevine balls are no different! You can change them up with just a couple of sprays!! The best part is that they can ALWAYS be painted another color later!!
I’ll be using Rust-Oleum AND Krylon because I have it on hand, but Rust-Oleum is definitely my first love when it comes to spray paint!! I’m going to spray the pink grapevine balls: three red, two blue, and two white. The others I’ll save for another project that I’ll show you in just a bit.
I almost forgot, this pretty little flower is included too!! I’ll be setting it aside for a later project, but I’m sure it will get a coat of paint eventually!!
After some spray and a little time to dry, this is the final result. All ready for the dough bowl!!
I just LOVE the red, white, and blue!!!
So easy and boy does it pack a punch!! I’m in love with this dough bowl display!!! And…….I’m not finished showing you how to paint grapevine balls because I still have some left!!
We’re Not Finished Yet!!
After the Fourth I’m going to need something else in this dough bowl to carry me through summer. I’m just loving the mustard color that everyone is using to accessorize, so let’s give it a try on these remaining grapevine balls!! I don’t have it in a spray paint though, so I’ll be using some acrylic!!
I saved seven of the grapevine balls, six are natural because I feel like they will be easier to cover with my yellow paint. We’ll just have to wait and see how the pink one covers.
I’m using this beautiful shade of yellow called Moon Yellow to paint the grapevine balls. I’ll add some water to give it a thinner consistency and hopefully make it easier to cover.
After one coat….
Once they were dry I painted a second time but the pink grapevine was a no go. The acrylic paint just wasn’t enough to cover it, but I’ll spray it for another use.
One bag, two different sets of dough bowl decor!! I’m calling it a win!!
