9 Comments

Transform those dollar store vases into these stylish Upcycled Flea Market Glass Vases from Mitzi Curi, great for spring decorating.  With these pearly pastel colors, you can create a look that's perfect for spring, weddings, baby showers and more.

Materials:

  • Spray paint (matte or satin) or multi-surface craft paint and paint brush (optional)
  • Sanding sponge (medium grit)
  • Assorted embellishments
  • Hot glue gun

 

Instructions:

  1. Two thin coats of spray paint worked well on these pieces:

  2. I thought I'd try some of the pearly Martha Stewart craft paints too:

  3. Here's the first bottle I painted with Martha's pearly paint in a green color.  It required two coats, and to be honest, it was much more difficult to apply than the spray paint:
     
  4. After the pieces are dry, take your sanding sponge and sand the piece to bring out the design:

  5. Now they are ready to embellish.

  6. Now comes my favorite part:  selecting the embellishments!  I have a humongous stash to choose from, but didn't want to overdo it.  I chose some vintage millinery flowers, cameos, and newer trim for my vases.
