DIY Milk Glass Vases
|May 7, 2013||Filled under Decorating, DIY|
Something you should know about me is that I am a total “easy projects only” person when it comes to DIY projects. I don’t have a lot of extra time to dedicate to large projects, but if it’s a reasonably short and sweet project, I’m in. :)
Enter these homemade “milk glass” vases. Easy, not too time consuming, just a few supplies needed. Yep, I’m good. :)
I chose these three vases, which probably came free with flower arrangements at some point.
I like that they are all different in some way in shape and texture.
You will also need some white, gloss finish spray paint. I used Krylon, mostly because of the quick-drying factor.
Find a space to do your spray painting with plenty of ventilation. I used our garage with a large piece of carpet remnant under the vases to keep me from painting the garage floor white.
They will need several coats, and you will want to be sure to spray the inside of the vase as well about a third of the way, mostly just the part the would show.
I ended up doing 4 coats, and they turned out great!
Here is the finished product:
I made these for table decor at my sister’s wedding shower, and I think they looked great! I added branches from the bushes in our yard and hung some small pom-poms (See how I made them HERE) on them.
Oh, and it took awhile to get any pictures of the finished vases, because my furry son just wanted to lay right down and have me pet him. Isn’t he the cutest?
Have a great day! :)
