I found this awesome vase at World Market on clearance for $10. It is normally only a few dollars more than that. There was just a small scratch on one side that didn’t bother me. I took it home but the clear glass just didn’t work anywhere I put it.
I remembered seeing similar dipped vases like this at Serena & Lily. I also had recently seen Katie from Halfway Wholeistic do a DIY on this vase. I knew that I had to go find her post and give it a try. This is a super simple project that can be finished in a few hours. Less than that if you take out the time you are waiting for paint to dry.
I pretty much followed Katie’s tutorial exactly. However, I did use a permanent marker to measure up three inches in a few spots around the vase. This gave me a guide to know where to put my tape line before painting. The permanent marker will wipe right off the glass vase with rubbing alcohol. I also used my favorite spray paint brand KILZ and Krylon. You can find my secret weapon for perfect spray painting technique in my YouTube video.
I grabbed some fresh greens from Trader Joe’s for the vase for only $2. I love that place! I usually go grab greenery from outside but I can’t pass up $2 greens. I am sure I will be moving this vase all over the house. The white base is just what the vase needed. You can find the full tutorial on Halfway Wholeistic.
