Thumb Print Vases

4th grade Frogs

3/4 split Birds

2nd grade Bugs

1st grade Pigs

3rd grade Fish

5th grade Ocean

I was asked to create thumb print vases with each class for the raffle at the school's carnival. I'd never done this before, but I think they turned out pretty cute! My favorite one is the pigs. I may be a bit biased though, pigs are my favorite animal! My mom donated the vases and I picked up some glass paint at Michaels. I called each student up during work time, painted their thumb, and then pressed it onto the glass! The students that won the vases were very excited!


  1. What a great idea and wonderful keepsake for your students & their families - Kudos!

  2. I had someone give a significant donation to the art room and this would be a great thank you gift! Love it!

  3. Oh these are SO cute! Is it acrylic paint? How do you keep it from scratching off? Is the black Sharpie?

  4. Its paint meant for glass from Michael's. You rub a cleaner down first, then paint, and then put a sealant over the top. it all come in a kit! yep that's just black sharpie! they do sell paint pens for glass, but sharpie seemed to do the job just fine!
