While making the flowers from clay did take some practice, Vidya says it was well worth the effort. Her DIY flower vase looks remarkably like Anthro’s and cost Vidya nothing since she used an old vase she’s had for years and left over spray paint and clay from other projects.

After weeks of mason jar projects due to her finger injury, Linda from It All Started With Paint felt it was time to mix things up a bit with a vase project. Linda transformed a passel of dollar store vases into West Elm ceramic vase look-a-likes with just some inexpensive acrylic paint. I love how the brightly colored tissue paper flowers pop in the crisp white vases. The great news about having to use paper flowers with these vases is that your flowers will stay bright and beautiful forever. Well… at least until your kids get a hold of them {wink}!
