Good Morning Friends...
Today I am going to show you my new vases I just finished..
I love them
they were really easy to make....
I picked these up at my favorite thrift store last week
they looked like this....
Nothing exceptional or eye-catching for sure...
I did like their shapes.
I had been looking for something to try a technique
I had seen on Pinterest
on several different types of bottles and vases.
I was dying to try it
when I found these I knew they were the ones to try it on...
I used white acrylic craft paint and
Valspar's Denim paint.
I poured the same amount of
white paint in each of three small Dixie cups.
Then in the first cup I added a small amount of Denim paint,
in the second one I doubled the amount of Denim paint
and in the third one I tripled the amount of Denim paint I used in the first cup.
I then mixed the paint in each cup well making sure I had a good ombre set of color.
Then I poured some of cup number 1 in one vase
and rolled it around until it covered the entire inside of the vase.
Then I poured out the excess in the cup
turned the vase upside down in another cup and let it drip for a while.
I repeated the steps with the other two vases using the second cup for the
second vase and the third cup of mixed paint for the third vase.
I then let them dry overnight
this is the result
I think they are so pretty and fit right in with my beachy decor.
But the best part is they
only cost me $1.50 and a little time...
Thinking that this is a project I may be repeating...
Do you think this is something you would like to try?
Until next time have a great day
get out there and create something you love....
I would love it if you would follow me by
