Draw a design on the surface of your vase, using puffy paint (choose a lighter colour so that it will not show later).

Quick tip: If you are not confident of your drawing skills, tape the design inside the glass so that it can be traced on the outside.

Make sure the design is raised and puffed up. Use puffy paint so that it creates a beautiful texture. Allow the paint to dry, before you take on the next step.

Step 2:

This is the fun part! Begin the painting. We are keenly waiting for spring; so we chose tangerine, fuchsia and matched it with silver and ivory. Also, you can give an extra pop to your vase by painting the inside rim in a different color. Coat your vase 2-3 times. This will make it look more like clay instead of glass.

Step 3:

The third and final step involves spraying sealant on your finished vase, in order to protect it from withering away.

Step 4:

Things you’ll need:

diy-flower-vases-2-things-needed

  • Numerous small branches from bushes or trees, each ranging about ½ to 1 and ½ inches, in diameter.
  • Old vases, tin cans, etc.
  • Non toxic glue
  • Some sandpaper

Step 1:

Cut the branches into small round shapes using shears.

Step 2:

Now glue the can and wooden slices together, beginning from the bottom. In order to ensure a strong hold, dab the glue on both can and wood.

Quick tip: Before gluing your items together, arrange them once so as to see how they will fit better. In awkward spaces, fit tiny pieces. If you are using an aluminium-can, cover it first, with coarse sandpaper so that the glue adheres.
