On Sunday I shared My New Living Room! In that post I mentioned that I painted a clear glass vase to match the rooms decor. Painting a vase is a great idea if you can't find an exact color match in the store. All you need is a clear glass vase (I already had one in my stash, but you can find these for pennies at any thrift store) and a small bottle of craft paint. I used craft paint I already had, but if you don't have any it is available at any craft store like Hobby Lobby.
The technique is so simple! Just pour the paint INSIDE the vase, and swirl it around the bit to get all the sides well coated. Next, turn it upside down and put it on a wire rack with the wax paper underneath. In the photo below I did it wrong and the paint pooled out around the vase. I quickly realized my mistake and put the paper UNDER the rack.
A lot of paint dripped out. Being the frugal gal that I am, I scooped it up and put it back in the paint bottle. The hardest thing about this project is patience. It takes a long time for the paint to drip out and dry. I'd leave it alone at least 24 hours.
Here's a very short video I posted to my Instastories. Notice the wax paper is now UNDER the wire rack. 🤣
I do want to mention that this was not my idea. I found it on the Health, Home, and Heart blog where she does a great photo tutorial for you to follow if you want to do one for yourself. Check it out: "Easy DIY Painted Vases"!
Have A Great Day! Amy
