I made these cute flower vases that you can use to decorate your table for a brunch with friends or a romantic dinner with a loved one.
You will need only 4 things to make these.
1. Vase(s) of your choice (I bought mine off of Amazon.com. I think I spent around $13 for the both of them)
2. Spray paint of your choice. (I chose a glossy one; you can use a matte spray paint)
3. Hot glue gun
4. Alcohol wipes to clean the surface of your vase. (You can use a cotton ball with some alcohol on it)
Wipe your vase clean with alcohol wipes or a cotton ball with alcohol on it.
Heat up your glue gun and write whatever your heart desires. I wrote “love” and “hi”. I also drew hearts on them.
(I will admit, this was really hard to do. I tend to have a steady hand when drawing or painting minuscule things, but it was impossible to control the flow of the glue while trying to keep the stringy ends to a minimum. You can see the stringy and tapered ends that make it messy. However, I think I did a pretty good job for my first time.)
Spray paint it with a paint of your choice. I chose a glossy-finish cream-colored spray paint. I purchased this at Walmart for less than $4.
(Follow the instructions on your paint can.)
This is the result after spraying my final coat of paint.
The words came out a little messy but from a distance, they’re cute and I think they can be a fun, do-it-yourself project to turn boring vases into a decorative table center piece.
Try it out and let me know how it went for you in the comments. (:
