Flowers are a staple Mother’s Day gift, but there’s no reason to settle for a plain glass vase for Mom. Why not make the vase part of the gift too? Abby from Just a Girl and Her Blog created these pretties with $2 vases from Wal-mart and vintage wallpaper. These vases are so lovely you don’t even have to put them away when the flowers are gone!

Milk Glass Vases

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}!

Textured Metallic Vase

For months you’ve been prowling through thrift stores looking for that special something, and then one day you finally see it. Heart pumping you snatch it from the shelf and hold your treasure close. Sound familiar? That must have been how Debbie from One Day at a Time felt when she finally found a vase that was the perfect size and shape to turn into a Crate & Barrel look-a-like. Debbie used spackle to create texture and then glammed it up with some silver spray paint.

Anthropologie’s colorful flower vases have caught the eyes of many DIYers. I have seen vases embellished with jewelry to achieve the same look, but this is first time I’ve seen a paper flower that’s just as pretty as the inspiration! Melissa of The Happier Homemaker shows how simple it is to make the chrysanthemum with just some snipping and rolling. Attached to her painted dollar store vase, it’s the perfect focal point for spring!

Hive Patterned Vase

I am loving this easy vase update shared by Angie of The Country Chic Cottage. It’s not like my hubby is constantly bringing me vases of flowers, but I somehow always seem to have plenty of them hiding in my cabinets. Angie busted out the Krylon on her vase and then used a dimensional writer to create a very cool honeycomb pattern for instant style.
