Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers is here to share with you a simple Christmas décor gift. She took dollar store vases and made an adorable Christmas centerpiece or vignette. You can change the look simply by changing out the filler. This may be inexpensive to make but sure gives high end results.
Hello Infarrantly Creative Fans! I’m Taryn from Design, Dining + Diapers and I feel so honored to be here sharing a cheap yet chic Holiday Craft with all of you! I have been following the series over the past month and I am loving all of the amazing ideas so far. But how could you not!?
The Holidays are such a wonderful time of year to make handmade gifts for friends a family. It is such a special time to tell the ones you love how much you care and what better way to show them than with something you made with your own hands. I am a huge fan of the Dollar Tree and all of the amazing things I can find there for a buck, not to mention their holiday section is awesome. One of my ‘go-to’ items at the Dollar Tree are these cylinder glass vases. There are so many projects you can do with them, but today I’m showing you how you can make Winter Vases With DIY Snow Texture.
To achieve the snow texture, I used Snow Tex by DecoArt and applied it with a stencil brush. I dipped the brush into the paint and applied a generous amount on the glass then dabbed the brush across the surface. Careful not to use actual brush strokes, this will thin the paint. You want to just dab the brush to spread out the texture. If it gets too thin, apply more paint. Just keep dabbing until the entire surface is covered
I purchase a lot of my glass vases at the dollar store, but sometimes you can only find the medium size there. To keep it under $10 you could use three medium size vases or purchase additional sizes at Hobby Lobby, Michaels or JoAnn’s and use a 40% coupon!
To create perfect stripes on my vase I covered the entire vase in blue painter’s tape, stacking each line perfectly on top of one another. This helps to create a perfectly straight line. Then I removed the tape from the sections I wanted to paint.
Once you remove the tape, you are left with perfect lines and beautiful Winter Vases! ALL of the fillers I used in all three displays were purchased at the Dollar Tree! That includes the ornaments, pine cones and foliage. So depending on which vase theme you choose, you will only be spending about $2-5 on fillers. Great deal!
So which style screams YOU?! Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday season and a Happy New Year! Thank you so much for letting me be part of your day And if you are interested, you can view more of my holiday projects here!
