Easy Bud Vase Makeover

Hello, this is a very easy craft that just about anyone can do! All you need is acrylic paint and spouncers, and of course, a vase. Any size or shape.  I found a pkg of 20 different size spouncers for only $3.69 on Amazon….best deal

My mom gave me some of these bud vases over 30 years ago for my wedding. Wow, that was a long time ago! Would you believe these had to be special ordered back then? Now they sell them
at the Dollar Store!!!


These are the spouncers. I purchased these on Amazon for under $4 I love these things!


I picked out my colors…


Tip: Put your vase upside down when doing this. Since you don’t go up the whole vase, it’s easier this way.
I put some of the colors on a dish. I used the smallest spouncer for this project. I started with the turquoise. I dipped the spouncer in the color and dabbed on the vase


I went all around the vase with the turquoise. Each time….I dabbed in paint then on vase. When I was finished with the turquoise, I kept on going until I had used all the 5 colors. Do you see below how you can see through them?

Another Tip: any little mistakes can be cleaned easily with alcohol and a QTip

If you leave it like this, just one coat, it is really nice! You can see a bit through them. I decided I wanted to try it with second coat. I only had 3 of those little spouncers, so there was a lot of running back and forth cleaning, drying them. I have no orange in this house, but I wanted a pop of color.


I baked it upside down on a cookie sheet at 350degrees for 20 minutes…let cool, that’s it….What do you think of it?


As I was doing this little project….I was thinking…wouldn’t this be cute in big circles on the washer and dryer!

Thank you for looking! Come back soon!
