Try this easy diy hand painted vase with supplies lying around the house. Embellish a plain vase with different colors of paint and use wine corks for a pretty vase filler.
Hello friends! How is summer treating you? This week seems to be going especially slow but at least we are over the hump. 😉 I have an easy DIY project for you today. It’s perfect for a dollar tree vase or one you might already have on hand.
DIY Hand Painted Vase with Wine Cork Filler
- painter’s tape
- spray paint
- paint marker
- wine corks
How to update your vase:
Step 1: Clean the vase to prep it.
Step 2: Place strips of painter’s tape in desired pattern.
Step 3: Spray paint 2 to 3 light coats or until completely covered, letting paint dry between coats. If you are using multiple colors as I did, use a piece of paper has a shield to prevent over spray on the other colors.
Step 4: Remove tape. Scrape off any excess paint with a razor blade or fingernail polish remover. (Of course paint remover would do the trick if you have some!)
Step 5: (optional) Hand paint a design with a paint marker. (see pic below)
Easy tip: Use collected wine corks for a vase filler. Perfect for stems that are too short or just a pretty filler! You may have to weigh down the corks with a layer of decorative rocks if you are using lightweight or not many stems to prevent them from floating.
Do you have any plain glass vases stored away? Would you give them a makeover?
Have a lovely day,
