Easy DIY Fall Craft (Painted Distressed Glass Vase)

Paint And Distress A Glass Vase

An Easy DIY Fall Craft

Make Yourself Some Quick & Easy
Thrifty, Fall-Themed Home Decor .
I shared this simple craft over at
Saved by Love Creations
with Johnnie and her readers about a month ago
and in case you didn’t catch it, I thought I would share it here at Fox Hollow today.
 
Grab yourself a vase.
You might have a few on hand already.
The more cut work, (nooks&crannies) the better!
I got mine at Goodwill for 99 cents.
Make sure it’s clean & dry.
You can wipe it down with rubbing alcohol if you want to make sure and remove any residue or oils.
I never do this. (Just being honest)
You all know I am a what?
LAZY CRAFTER!
yep, that’s right.
I like it quick. cheap. and easy.
I’m an instant gratification kinda gal ;)
Next, you’ll want to use a paint that is suitable for glass surfaces.
I used a (new to the USA) paint called
It’s a chalk based paint and it worked beautifully on the glass.
I decided on Cobblestone.
It’s a perfect neutral and I thought I could get lots of use out of my vase in this shade.
I like to move stuff around. A lot!
After my paint was dry. I grabbed  a sanding sponge and just knocked-off the paint until I liked the look!
Done
Decorate
 
Enjoy
This idea can be utilized to make centerpieces for parties, showers or casual weddings too. Any paint color can be used and embellishments can be added to make them really personal too!
For Fall… I liked the simple, unadorned vase dressed in paint only. I can really enjoy the texture and cuts in the vase and I liked it paired with the branches, leaves and the natural elements of the wood and jute twine.
In fact, I liked it so much, I made another one
and decorated the Fall Mantel with them.I knew these would come in handy!

Simple, Natural Fall Fireplace. Mantel & Hearth Decor.

 

Mr Crow looks pretty comfy there.
I think he’ll be sticking around for Halloween!

Hope you enjoyed this post.
If you give an vase or glass piece a painted, distressed makeover, come share it on my facebook page.
I’d love to see it.
