Today’s tutorial comes to you via ao.com, Carole Poirot is here to show you how to make this lovely floral DIY Vase:
Well, I thought it’d be a great idea to have something that can be added to the table or to a shelf and brings a little bit of (admittedly pretend) Spring to your home.
Now, I’m not somebody who will go completely overboard with pink and flowers, but little touches here and there add just a hint of a feminine touch as long as you steer clear of “Barbie pink”!
Pale pinks work beautifully with off-white and look pretty and grown up. So, if you fancy making this lovely little vase, just follow the simple instructions. Have fun.
Silk flowers, (SIA cherry blossoms)
- A small glass bottle
- Off white spray paint
- Hot glue gun
- (not shown) old newspaper
And here’s how it’s done…
Pull the blossoms off the stem – a little tug and they’ll come off.
Take the bottle outside or open all your windows, lay out the newspaper and apply the spray paint in a thin layer. Leave to dry for about 15 minutes before applying a second layer. Leave to dry.
Heat up your glue gun and carefully apply a good dollop of glue to the back of a blossom.
Stick onto the bottle.
Repeat with the other blossoms applying them closely together in a “trail” going around the bottle.
Once all the flowers are glued on, apply another thin layer of spray paint all over the flowers. This will give the flowers a matching look to the vase.
That’s it! A small vase with a really pretty Spring feel.

We’ve been dranking, we’ve been dranking… but unlike Bey + Jay we are not in drunk in love, we are drunk on hate, envy and whatever other emotions you’d like to list. However, the only positive about being childish and eaten alive by our own hatred, and petty design feuds is that at least we are learning about cocktail making.
Our favourite libation of self commiseration is a Whisky Sour. Anyway… we supped on that while giving this suite the thug tears treatment.See Some More Post a comment (1)
Gotta love a bit of wisdom from Will, today’s wedding wisdom is from Shakespeare
