I love vintage milk glass. I wish I had a collection of hobnail milk glass to display in an open cabinet.
Until I start my collection of vintage milk glass, I thought I’d try a diy version using a method I’ve seen many times on craft sites and blogs.
To make the hobnails you need craft puffy paint. I bought this puffy paint almost a year ago with the intention of making this project and then forgot about it. I thought I bought white but apparently I grabbed glow in the dark puffy paint. My knock off Fenton will probably be glowing at night… oh well.
To make a faux hobnail vase, start with a clean piece of glass and dot on your puffy paint. The paint takes about 4 hours to dry but I let mine dry overnight. Once your puffy paint is dry, cover the entire glass with several light coats of white spray paint. Finish with a coat of gloss clear spray paint.
Now, I’m sure the artisans at Fenton would be laughing at my attempt at milk glass hobnail but I’m quite thrilled with it.
Add some pretty flowers that you borrowed from a neighbor…
