DIY Spray Vases: Part 2

Aren't these a cute, cheap project? 

I usually like matte finish, but the glossy texture on some of these gives them a nice new sheen. And baby jars make the cutest little mini vases or containers!

I do have to note, these are not "safe" to use for any type of liquid consumption. They just look cool and won't damage flowers or decorative pieces.

Cute idea right? Especially on a budget! You could do this for wedding centerpieces, parties etc... I have spray painted wine bottles, vases, jars... you name it, I've probably painted it.

Another idea for a centerpiece would be to take tons of different sized items and paint them one color and or have a line of vases down a table... you get the idea.

I love this, Anna! Great idea for baby food jars. I've been wondering what to do with those.

We did this for a wedding I worked on and it turned out so amazing. We got all of the pieces from thrift stores. http://www.flickr.com/photos/serendipityandspark/4540327479/in/set-72157623779000881/

Loooove the bottle idea!

So pretty! Would you mind sharing the brand and color name of the pink spray paint? I love that shade!

anna naphtali said...

It's Krylon? I'm not sure the color name, but I'm sure if you see the top you will tell which one it is! :)

How did you spray paint the bottom of the bottle?

Just an FYI ... Rannunculus are my FAVORITE flower in the world (although I know I'm misspelling it). They grow from bulbs, and are a spring flower, and as such are only available from about late March to Late April.
And Trader Joe's is an excellent place to get them. Costco, too. But both places are just a matter of timing -- you have to be there in just the right moment b/c they sell out quickly.
KING of all flowers!

Lisa, you just wait for it to dry and flip it over and spray! :)

do you think this would work as well with a dark colored glass?

anna naphtali said...

It definitely works on colored glass too... just do an extra coat. I have done it several times!
