DIY faux stone vases

this year I discovered cuttings and it's fast become a thing for me... my poor plants keep getting snipped so I can cultivate baby versions around the house.

in order to feed my latest habit I've been buying oodles of vases so I decided to jazz up some of my plain glass ones by adding some texture for a simple scandi feel. I have to thank teri from the lovely drawer for this discovery -stone effect spray paint. 

exciting right? spray paint is my best friend when it comes to DIY makeovers.


making these faux stone vases was a breeze. cover an area outside with newspaper and get spraying. I wanted a slight gradient/ombre effect so I didn't spray all the way to the top of the vases -add a second coat to the bottom half of each vase to build up the gradient effect.

it takes much longer to dry than regular spray paint so wait at least 24hrs before you use them! top up the vases with water and simply add your flowers or cuttings...

the best part? I have loads leftover so I'm going to give some of my old plant pots a stone effect makeover too!

would you try something similar?

back soon
