I’ve had these vases on my to-make list since last October. Story of my life with getting things done, a day late a buck short. Ah well, so glad to have them done now. I had originally planned to paint them in gold, but saw this Renaissance Gold Liquid Leaf at the store and loved the copper hue. I have quite a few copper things around my house, so I thought copper dipped vases would probably be a better fit than gold.
This project was quick, simple and cheap to do, my favorite kind. (It’s pretty similar to the Paint Dipped Mugs I made). I used thrifted vases and a coupon at Michaels for the liquid leaf, so my vases probably ended up costing less than my flowers! Oh but it’s so nice to have these fresh tulips sitting on my table – I can have a little hint of spring indoors since this long, cold winter wants to stick around forever!
What you need:
How to do it:
Make sure your vase is clean. Apply tape, making sure to get it as tight as possible so paint doesn’t leak under, it’s a little tricker if your vase has any ridges/patterns on it. Paint vase, following directions according to your paint bottle for what kind of brush to use and how long to let it dry. Once dry, apply a clear coat over your paint to seal it. Once the clear coat is dry, carefully remove painters tape.
I’m excited for Daylight Savings Time this weekend – hooray for an extra hour of light in our days! We’re having a bit of a warm spell too (hooray for getting out of single digits!), so I’m hoping we can get out and enjoy some fresh air this weekend (it’s only supposed to last a few days…then back to snow and cold 🙁 ). And we’ll be celebrating my little guy’s birthday this weekend, so lots of fun happening here!
Hope your weekend is lovely!
