Cutting Board Flower

flower May 08, 2024

This tutorial will guide you through crafting a one-of-a-kind floral cutting board that I found at Hobby Lobby! We'll be using a beautiful combination of materials: cut vase glass for green leaves, cut globe glass for the petals, seed beads, crushed green glass, and even a touch of vitrigraph for a unique artistic twist. Let's turn simple pieces of glass into a piece of art that will be the star of your kitchen!

Start by painting a background on your cutting board. I am mixing white acrylic paint with water, applying it to my board really quickly, and then swiping down the board with a putty knife to pull it back off. This will give you a nice distressed white background! Dry it with a heat tool, do this same technique again, and dry it one more time. 

Lightly sand your cutting board to smooth it out. Tape off the back of your cutting board with painter's tape to avoid having any resin drips. Then, let's add glass! I am going to add green vitrigraph for the stems. I have blue glass that I cut from a glass globe and green glass that I had cut from a vase. Form your globe glass into a flower and then add your green glass for leaves. Finally, add crushed green glass to the bottom.

Mix 1 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your glass and spread it onto your cutting board using your gloved fingers or brush. 

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times! 

I'll also sprinkle Amethyst seed beads onto my flower petals and Transparent Green seed beads onto my leaves and stem area.
