Step 1: Assemble the Vase
Yep, you read that correctly. The beauty of a value vase is that is may not have started out in a vase form! Nope, to keep the price low, I discovered these glass bowls and these glass candlesticks at my local dollar store.
Flip the bowls upside down and use an adhesive meant for bonding glass. Allow to dry overnight.
Step 2: Paint Your Vase to get the milk glass vibe
Grab your sponge brush, your bottle of DecoArt Gloss Enamel in white and start painting! This step requires patience and a tiny bit of water to help the paint go on smoothly. You will need at least two coats.
I played around with adding DecoArt Metallics by dry brushing. I ultimately decided on keeping the vases glossy milk glass white.
Step 3: Fill Your Vase
I will be bringing you a full tutorial on simple floral arranging (with video, fingers crossed!) but for now, this is the time you would use floral foam designed for fresh flowers and fill your vase.
How great is that? A “milk” glass vase for $3 that can be made in bulk and doesn’t break the bank. Now let’s all ooh and ahh over my friends who have been busy being creative!
