Acrylic Painted Vases

A simple craft for the glass jars and vases you have hanging around at home. Just paint them and now they can be displayed. 

What you need:

  • Glass Vases (Available at Goodwill or Dollar Tree)
  • Acrylic Paint

How to make it:

  • Clean vase with hot, soapy water.
  • When completely dry, pour paint into the inside of the vase.

  • Swirl to coat vase completely. Then pour out excess paint to container for reuse.

  • Place vase upside down on paper towel for about 20 minutes.
  • Wipe the excess paint from the lip of the vase with a wet paper towel.
  • Let dry upright for 24 hours.
Note : You can no longer use water in these vases.

  1. I love the vases. That's a great way to turn something old into something new and unique. Love it! I'm a new follower.

  2. How pretty! I'll have to remember this for some vases I see :)

  3. So pretty! Why can't one put water in it afterwards? THanks!
