Super Easy DIY Painted Glass Vase
You don’t need to buy vases, just repurpose your food jars or drink bottles for this super easy DIY painted glass vase project.
Have you ever noticed how food/drinks come in cute glass containers? The assortment is crazy! Think about how many glass jars and bottles you have in your pantry or refrigerator. They are all future vases!
The best part about repurposing glass jars and bottles is that you are saving money! That container will have a second life. It won’t go into the landfill or be recycled. You will be reusing it!
For this easy DIY painted glass vase, I decided to reuse my Starbucks Frappuccino bottles. There are SO cute! Plus they come in two sizes, which makes them great for combining to create a fun centerpiece for your next gathering.
Painted Vase How to: Step-by-Step Instructions
- Enjoy your Frappuccino!
- Clean the bottle with hot water and soap, and remove the label. If the glue residue is hard to remove, use Goo-Gone. It is great at taking off excess glue.
- Cover your work area with scrap paper.
- Brush the outside of the bottle with one coat of the Milk Glass paint.
- Let dry for 1 hour and add a second coat. Brush in the opposite direction as the first coat. This will ensure the whole area is covered.
- With Milk Glass, the paint lines might be visible. I really like this effect, as it has a linen-like look.
- Be sure to follow the instructions on the bottle to make the paint permanent. You will need to put your vase in the oven, or not mess with it for a few weeks. *I chose the glass paint because it would be permanent. That way I could put them in the dishwasher. If you use standard latex craft paint, it will come off your vase and won’t look good.
- Fini! SO cute!!
These DIY Painted glass vases are so cheap and easy! Enjoy making them!!
