Revamped Vase

While gathering things for my yardsale - I ran across several vases that had accumulated under the kitchen sink. A couple were unusual enough that I thought would sell "as is" but I found this one that was your typical plain jane style - just clear glass. I thought to myself - no one is going to buy this - and just started to stuff it back in its place - then thought why not spiff it up?

So...I spray painted it aqua and white  and then just took a few colors of the bottled fabric paint and made some squigglies - (that is a technical term, you know) and tied some matching tulle around the neck. Now I kind of like it. I am still going to put it in my yardsale - if it sells - great - if not - I have a new and improved vase that will match the decor in my sewing/craft room.


  1. The fabric paint you're referring to : is that the puffy kind ? I love what you did here and I have something similar which I do not use a lot as it looks so "boring"

    1. Actually it is just regular fabric paint and that is how it dried. It does look like puffy paint.

  2. This turned out too cool! I have several vases, I think I just might be brave enough to try something like this:) Just dropping by to check to see what you are up to and let you know Freedom Fridays is up and running. Have a fabulous weekend!
