Materials For the Flower Vase:

  • 1 large clear glass vase
  • 1 (2oz) bottle of acrylic paint
  • Stickers (optional)
  • Foam Brush


Instructions For the Flower Vase:


Wash and dry the clear flower vase. 
Once dry, pour the entire bottle of paint into the vase. Pick the vase up and swirl the paint around the vase. Paint should cover the entire inside of the vase.
If the paint needs a little help reaching the rim of the vase, use the foam paint brush to pull the paint to the rim.
Sit the jar upside down on old newspaper or if you want to save the excess paint sit the jar upside down inside of a plastic container. Let vase sit upside down for 2-3 hours so that the excess paint drains out.
After 2-3 hours, set the vase up right and let dry overnight.
After the paint on the inside of the vase has dried; use decorative stickers to decorate the outside of the vase.  Most craft stores have a huge variety of stickers, ranging from super simple to fancy and elegant.
Once dry, fill vase with flowers and enjoy. I put silk flowers in this vase, but if you wanted to use it for real flowers that require water, just spray the inside of the vase with a sealer and let dry before adding water.

  • 1 (2oz) bottle of acrylic paint

  • 1 small glass lamp shade
