Strawberry Fairy Vase

This Strawberry Fairy Vase is a fun and simple painting project for the novice painter.  Great for holding branches or flowers (or even for serving fresh strawberries), this vase is great for a summer party and makes a lovely housewarming gift.  The painted strawberry is good enough to eat, and everyone is sure to be surprised and amazed that you painted it yourself!
