Having flowers around my home is one of my favorite small luxuries as my favorites, roses, peonies and orchids always put a smile on my face so I tend to try to keep fresh blooms around whenever possible. So to expand my vase collection I decided to make a trio of DIY gold vases to group flowers in a cluster of assorted height vases.
To start I took 3 different sized glass vases I got from the dollar store and put some double sided tape on the vases. Next, I took 3 sheets of the newspaper where I tore off the bottom edge.
Taking a torn sheet of newsprint I wrapped a glass vase with the paper so that the ripped edge was about 2 inches away from the bottom of the vase. Pushing down on the newspaper it stuck to the double sided tape on the vase, so the paper held firmly in place. I repeated this process with the other 2 vases.
Next, it was time to spray paint the bottom of the 3 vases with my favorite gold spray paint, Rust-oleum Metallic Gold. It took 2 light coats of spray paint on each vase for the gold paint to become fully opaque.
Once the paint has dried, you can peel off the newspaper and tape and your vases are ready to use. One of my favorite things about this simple DIY is the gold detailing allows me to use a kenzan at the bottom of the vase if I wish to hold the flowers upright as it would be hidden by the gold paint!
I hope you love this DIY idea as much as I do.
