Caterpillar

So I kind of suck and didn't know that it was Mother's day this Sunday until my hubby told me a couple of nights ago. 
I rock what can I say!
 So I have been searching and searching for projects I can do that are last minute. 
While looking though I found a cute idea for some more Spring decor that can transition into summer. 
I saw these cute caterpillars painted onto glass and wanted to try it out for myself! 
Turns out it was super quick and only took me about an hour (with drying time). 

Here is what you will need!

Glass block (or any glass you want to use)
Paint
Foam stencil brush
Fine point paintbrush

First you will want to clean your glass with glass cleaner or alcohol.  This will make the paint stick better.  Next take your foam stencil brush and dip it into the paint.  Put however many circles you want for your caterpillar.
Let the paint dry. 
Next take your fine point paint brush and paint little legs and a face onto the caterpillar. 
And there you have a cute decoration!!!  
My husband laughed when he saw it. 
 But I think he was just jealous he didn't think of it first.  

I wasn't so great at painting the face.  Oh well I like it!


Now onto trying to figure out Mother's day gifts.
