Marbleized Glass Flower Vase
An ordinary glass vase gets a pop of color with swirls of paint and this easy-to-use medium.

This idea comes from our contributor Kara Whitten. She used this as the craft for her Galentine's Day party. "Martha Stewart's multi-surface paint gets transformed into a marble effect on glass vases," she says. "Once dry, let your guests choose their own flowers to fill their vases and take them home."
Add half of each paint bottle of acrylic paint to the disposable cups. In a 2 to 1 ratio of paint to marbling medium, add the marbling medium to each cup.
Stir paint with a popsicle stick to combine the marbling medium.
Starting with the white paint cup, layer the colored paint into the white paint. Repeat until all your paint is in the white paint cup.
Turn your vase over on a plastic wrap covered surface and pour the paint over the bottom and around the sides of the vase letting paint drip down the glass surface. (Tip: If needed, use a popsicle stick to scoop up excess paint up and dribble it on parts of the vase that didn't get covered in paint.) Let dry completely.
