Paint Dipped Flower Vase and link party


I'm ready for sunshine, colorful plants
and being outside.

But since it's still pretty chilly 
here in TN,
I'll have to settle for adding Spring indoor!

Today I'm sharing brightly 
colored, paint dipped 
flower vases!


colorful painted vase, spring decor, table centerpiece, faux tulips

This is a really inexpensive
and simple project!
Each vase cost a little less than $2.




I started with these glass vases from the dollar store.




For the paint, I put foil inside a ceramic cereal bowl.




I poured craft paint into the tinfoil bowl
and watered it down just a bit.



Then I dipped the vase into the paint in the bowl.
I rolled it around until the lower
portion of the vase was completely covered.




I repeated the same process with 2 other colors.

I sat the vases on a dollar store drying rack
with foil underneath to catch the drips.

I let the vases dry for several hours.
Then I flipped them over,
touched up the paint on the bottom slightly,
and let the vases dry for several more hours.




A small bit of paint leaked through the foil 
into the bowl below.




But it washed out very easily with soap and water.




I love the way the vases turned out
with a few faux tulips in them.




I love the bright colors!
Perfect for Spring!




I love the rough edges of the paint!




I love how they could be customized with any color!




These paint dipped vases make the perfect
Spring Table Centerpiece!
