DIY Easter Vase


I was thinking about some different idea's of how to decorate for Easter, and
I have several clear glass vases that I have received over the years with beautiful
bouquets of flowers.. so I decided to makeover one with an Easter theme.

I picked out a vase, some white spray paint, and painters tape.


Then I taped off 3 lines along the neck of the vase, and a cross design at the bottom.
For the cross I just ripped the tape.. with a piece for the vertical part, and another
piece for the horizontal overlay.  I ripped the horizontal one lengthwise as well so it wasn't as wide.
I also just left the edges jagged.. I just liked the look. 
 (You could use scissors if you prefer more of a straight line)


Next I took it outside and sprayed it with a couple of coats of white paint.

After it was dry, I peeled off the tape.
Then I got out my other supplies... :0)  Couldn't stop there! 

I used a silver metallic paint pen to outline the cross..
I used the Easter grass to stuff into the vase.. I love how you can see the Easter grass
through the clear cross, and stripes.  Cute pop of color.
Then I added some flowers, some sparkle egg picks, and a pastel bow.

and here is how it turned out.. 



Can you see the green Easter grass peeking through the clear glass?
 I kinda wish I would've used a pale pastel pink paint, or
a pale light blue perhaps..  but I do like the white. :0)

It will make a lovely centerpiece in my table scape for Easter.. and it was
very inexpensive because I had most the items on hand.
