Spring project!! The weather has not been cooperating but I am still in the “Spring” mode. Here is a quick and easy project for DIY vases that can “spring” up a room or shelf. They can also be used for Easter table centerpieces!
Once again, I find myself searching Pinterest for Spring ideas. I fell in love with the idea of taking glass vases and painting them Spring colors to brighten up the house! It took me 2 hours to create these vases. This is so easy, I almost think you can look at the pictures and know what to do, but here is a brief step by step guide! I went to Michael’s for my things, but you can get these really anywhere.
Here’s what you need:
Vases – $3.99-$4.99 Ea.
Paint (make sure you can use it on glass) – $1.25 ea.
Brushes – 12 pack for $4
Flowers – $1.50 per bunch
Easter Grass – $1.29

Here’s what you do:
Place the vases on paper (upside down) to protect tables/counters from paint. Upside down allows you to paint the bottom.
Paint all sides and let dry (about 30 minutes). Paint coat 2 and let dry!
Flowers are optional, but you can be as creative as you want in their placement. Just glue them on!
To keep the “spring” theme, I chose vibrant colors with complimentary flowers. I tried two (2) different painting schemes on the vases. I put two (2) coats on the purple vase while I only put one (1) coat on the pink vase. The one coat scheme gave a “rustic” look. Make sure to get multiple brushes—they are inexpensive and can be used and discarded instead of the need to wash and clean the more expensive brushes.
Once completed, I tried different ways to use the vases. I first filled them with Easter grass for a simple décor or a table centerpiece. For the second idea, I placed the flowers in each of the vases. I will use these in my living room. Idea 3, use them in your bathroom to hold Q-tips or Cotton-balls!
These vases definitely brightened up ANY room. Here’s to warmer temperatures and THINK SPRING!
