I love glitter . . . especially when it’s not messy. So that is what I love about FolkArt Extreme Glitter. Which sounds like a commercial, but I’m serious . . . this glitter is already in the base so it doesn’t get everywhere. Because one of the last times I used glitter I made a huge mess and then accidentally blew it in my dog’s face. Anyhoo, if you’re ready for spring like I am, this DIY vase is a perfect craft idea. It’s sparkly and fun and you can adapt it to whatever colors you like. Here’s how it was made.
Gather These Supplies
- Aquatic garden vase
- FolkArt Extreme Glitter, Gold
- FolkArt Enamels, Wicker White and Yellow Citron
- 1 ¼” spouncer
- Round brush
- Craft knife and blades
- Cutting surface (mat or piece of glass)
- 1 ½” stencil or painter’s tape
- 1” button
Peel up the circles when the vase is still dry. Use the end of your craft knife for easy removal – be careful not to get your hands in the wet paint. Allow the vase to dry. Use the tip of your craft knife to scratch off any glitter that bled under the tape.
Using Wicker White and your round brush, paint petals around the circles. Start at the outer edge of petal and draw towards the center (picture a clock face and paint 12, 3, 6 and 9, then fill in-between). Complete this step for each circle on your vase (not the ones around the rim).
Using the Yellow Citron, apply dots to the inside of the daisies with the end of your brush. On the rim, add Wicker White dots as shown as the follow. Follow the curing instructions on the product bottle.
