watercolored vases

My latest DIY for Project Wedding is bright and cheerful, a nice break from the bleak winter weather this last week. Making your own watercolored vases is an affordable option for a spring wedding or party. To make them, you can use any type of plain glass (thrifted or saved from recent packaging will save you money). Combine paint with water and swirl the vase around in the mixture, it creates a very pretty looking watercolor effect. Find the exact instructions and measurements here.

I am absolutely in love with the semi transparent texture and jagged edges this painting technique leaves behind. A few of the vases are currently residing on my kitchen counter filled with french tulips. Happy almost spring!

  1. I’m so happy you posted this. I was wondering if I could do this for my 40th birthday party centerpieces but hadn’t done the official “thinking” on it. It looks way easier than I thought it might be–danke!

  2. This is such a great idea! I have lots of plain vases buried in a cabinet and now I know JUST what to do with them! Thanks for the fabulous tip! Xo, Erika

  3. I’m so glad I discovered your blog! I’m so into DIY and stylish decorations. I have agreed to help my best friend organise her wedding and I’m in charge of decorations so, I’ll spend a lot of time here! Already bookmarked your blog!

  4. This is wonderful! What a beautiful, creative way to reuse old vases or glass jars.

    I’m so glad you stopped by today…it gave me a chance to visit your site…and now that I’m here, I think I’ll be coming back again for more creative ideas.

    Thanks again!
