DIY Polka Dot Pitcher

Good Morning Everyone!
Today I am excited to share with you another 
little something I whipped up.
If you have been reading here for any amount of time,
You should know 2 things by now.
1. I love polka-dots
2. I love the color red
So this past week my friends at DecoArt sent me a box full
of their newest glass paint.
I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do with it :0)

You see, I have this lovely China Hutch that contains
my collection of Polka Dot Dishes.
I have everything from glasses, plates, bowls, and different serving dishes.
But I have yet to find a Pitcher to go along with my collection.
So I found this plain red one while out shopping recently,
and of course fell in love with the color and the shape.
With the use of some White DecoArt Crystal Paint
and a round tipped brush
I made my VERY own Polka Dot Pitcher
 that is worthy ofmy collection!
Before I actually painted right on the pitcher,
I tested out my polka dotting skills on a cheap clear vase
I had hanging around.
This way, I was able to see how easily the paint went on
and figure out a good pattern.
Then I started on my pitcher…
In no time, I had both the vase and my pitcher all polka-dotted up!
And I AM THRILLED with the results!
And I can’t WAIT to find another piece to do!
This post is part of a paid campaign with DecoArt, all opinions are my own.
Here is where I am linking up this week!
