Hello! It’s Vanessa from www.seevanessacraft.com, back with another fun craft idea that you can make with your painted pottery pieces from As You Wish. Head into the studio to paint a few tiny pottery cupcakes and we’ll be attaching them to mason jars to create a fun birthday gift! Don’t forget to fill the jars with cupcakes and attach a fork. You could even serve these jars at a birthday party. After the cupcakes are gone, the birthday gift recipient can use these jars to store craft supplies or other small trinkets. Keep reading for a step by step tutorial.
