Creations, Painting Popcorn and Popcorn Treat Bags

Everybody loves popcorn, it’s fun to make, fun to eat, and easy to paint!

All you need are 3-4 colors, white, yellow, dark brown and black for lettering and accents

load a brush with a little yellow and a little white and let the paint mix as you apply it

Adjust as you go, making irregular dots in groups of 3s, 2s and singles

Leave some almost white, some deep yellow, all a little different

The color variations keep things interesting

By using both yellow and white on the same brush, natural shading occurs, giving your “popcorn” depth and shape

Paint some text with a fun font that doesn’t have to be perfect*

You can add little white or yellow  dots for even more “Pop!”

Add some dark brown dots here and there for the kernels

black dot bucket and galvanized mini bucket are from Target’s bargain bins.  You can find lots of buckets in all sizes at Home Depot and Lowe’s in the painting department, and they are great for painting.  You can see a lot more painted buckets at Shrimp Bucket here

You can see more about making a Popcorn Bar here

You can use any kind of paint for the buckets and bags, but you must use paint made specifically for painting glass if you want to paint on bowls or other glassware.  I use Liquetex Glossies.  Once the piece has been painted, dried and baked, the paint is cured and you can wash your pieces by hand or in the dishwasher

    You are too much, Jenna! I LOVE those bowls and snack bags (especially the “all gone” at the bottom of the bowl) I would love to try this idea, although a paint brush is not really a friend of mine! Thank you for the ideas!! Rosie
    P.S. love the idea of a popcorn bar!
