{DIY} Anthropologie-Style Confetti Vases

Okay ~ as much as I enjoyed the last few weeks of doing nada, laying around reflecting on House Goals, and dreaming of how great my cabinets will look some day ~ I can only go so long without creating something. As soon as I spotted this idea on Pinterest, and sat down to get started, it was as if my whole being exhaled.

What was even better about this Anthropologie-inspired project, was it didn't require me to change out of pajamas, since I had all the supplies on hand....glossy acrylic craft paint (mine are the same as the little flip-top bottles), glass bud vases and toothpicks.

Using a toothpick as your paintbrush, dot little blobs of paint all over your glass. Since I used so many colors, throwing away toothpicks was a lot easier than washing 10 different paintbrushes. And the small tip allowed for greater control. TWSS (Boosh! First TWSS of the year! And plenty more where that came from.)

I didn't really have a plan or color scheme, I just kept adding dots until I was bored with it.

Bake them at 325-degrees for 30 minutes...but don't pre-heat your oven...and the paint sets to dishwasher-safe. Or so says the package. I'm not a professional, therefore, not libel. They do smell a little funny while baking...or maybe I just need to clean my oven.

After cooling, I was left with the cheeriest, cutest little bud vases you ever did see!

Guess who got a new camera lens for Christmas? I might be a little obnoxious with the close-ups around here until the excitement wears off. (It's this one if you're interested...and I love it!)

You could do this project on anything glass or ceramic...votives would be really pretty...maybe using all gold dots??! Oh, oh, I'm totally going to do that! You'll be surprised what you can dig up in your house...these little bulby vases are from Michaels.

  7. These would be adorable for a birthday party! I really like them. Did the paint on the very bottom cause the vases to be uneven when they are standing, or is the paint thin enough that it didn't cause any issue? Adorable craft idea!

  8. These came out so cute! I definitely want to try this with gold dots. just lovely!

  9. Cute-ness! I love that most of your crafts don't require a ton of money and take just a few minutes - my kind of craft.

  10. They actually act as rubber grippers...keep them from sliding around easily. I guess they are all about the same thickness, so there's no wobbling. :)

  11. Thanks, Cassie! With three kids under 5 I worry about the wobbliness of things :) Did I mention how cute these are?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, so sweet. They really are so cheerful. And i understand the close up addiction. I never ever take my 50 mm off of my camera.

  31. Oh, man, it's been for-eh-ver since I did a project. I've decorated and I've rearranged furniture, but I haven't actually created much lately! I totally need to start on one of the 10-ish pieces of furniture waiting in my basement for a makeover. Needing some motivation!

    By the way, your confetti vases are ah-door-ee-blay!

  40. I REALLY want to do this project! But, I'm having trouble finding similar vases. Where did you find yours? And do they just look medium sized in the picture, or are they quite small?

    1. Hi Erin -- I found them at Michaels for a few dollars. They are fairly small...would fit in the cup of your hand. Hope this helps!

Your comments are like crack, or popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. And unfortunately, because of insane amounts of spam, I've had to disable Anonymous comments for awhile. I just didn't need any more information on penis enlargements! But you can always email me! xoxo, cass
