Easy Peasy

I figured my first posted project should be something that wouldn’t scare away anybody. This is probably one of the easiest and cheapest projects! What you need is a vase (bought or one you own), paint, and a paper plate. I got this vase at the dollar store. Not super impressive but had cool wave lines so I could see some potential. Cost a dollar. Ikea has another cool small vase that I got for .79 – awesome! I got the craft paint at Michael’s Craft store. They always have really good coupons so thanks to their 50% off coupon I got the paint for .50 cents! Side note – if you download their App on your smart phone, you can access their coupons from your phone and never have to worry about printing coupons. They scan it right from your phone. Gotta love the 21st century!

First step is to pour some of the paint in the vase. You’ll want to put just a tad of water to help the paint move easier. Roll the paint around until it’s completely covered with the paint. Keep adding more paint in there as needed. Then you place it upside down on the paper plate to let it drain. The most important part is to let it dry. It’s also the hardest because I was so excited to turn it right side up and put it in my entertainment center. Ok, so I did that for my other vase that I’m not showing you. You’ll get gross streaks. Trust me, wait. You’ll want to do more! It’s such an easy and cheap project and it’s a great space filler.

So, what are you waiting for? Let the vase transformation begin!
