This week I have crossed a small something off my to do list for the dining room! I was so inspired by this post by this post by Kacey at Stay-At-Home Artist that I had to do some crafting of my own! Take a look at what I came up with:
I’m so excited to share this tutorial but of course, I was *way* too into my crafting and it did not occur to me to take any pictures of anything except the final product so I will do my best to explain the steps.
Please click “read more” for the tutorial and for more pictures of the finished product!
For this project you will need:
- 2 small jars from the dollar store with a fairly skinny neck but that bow out like the top of the white middle jar.
- 1 bigger jar from the dollar store with the same shape.
- 2 4 inch Styrofoam balls
- 1 5 inch Styrofoam ball
- Fake flowers of your choice (I needed 4 bundles and I barely had enough to make it look full so you might need 5 bundles)
- White paint of your choice
- Tacky Glue
Wash all the vases that you get from the dollar store
Clip all the flowers off of there stems but leave about 1.5 inches attached to the flower so you can poke it into the Styrofoam ball.
Pre-poke the holes into the Styrofoam ball before you put each flower in. Once you have pre-poked the hole for one flower, put a little bit of tacky glue in there. Then insert the flower into the hole. This will help to hold the flower in place long term.
Keep inserting the flowers into the Styrofoam ball but make sure to leave an empty space on the bottom of the ball so you can glue it to the glass vase.
Once you have covered all the space except for the little bit on the bottom, you can glue it to the glass vase with the tacky glue and your done with the flowery vases!
For the white vase, just put a GIANT glob of white paint into the bottom of the vase and swirl it around until the whole inside of the vase is covered. Put the extra white paint back into the paint bottle and let it dry!
I know I didn’t have any pictures of the process so if any step is unclear or you have questions, please send me an email!
Here are some more pictures of the finished project:
