Happy April! Is it just me or does this spring seem to be flying by before our eyes? Maybe it is just this getting older thing that makes time seem to speed up. In any case, I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

I am excited to share my little Easter Brunch birthday party, but since I’ve still got a few photos left to edit, today I thought I’d share this quick & easy  ombre vase project that I used as my table centerpiece. Any project that costs less than $7 in supplies (for all 3 vases), takes less than 30 minutes to complete gets high marks in my book. Frankly, I am in LOVE with how these turned out!

Most of the supplies you probably already have on hand, but for the paint I highly recommend the Martha Stewart brand high-gloss acrylic paint. Unlike regular acrylic paint, this brand works on all surfaces, including glass. It is found by the other acrylic paints and runs about $2 a bottle.

Here is what you need:

dollar store glass vase (or any vase you have on hand)
Martha Stewart brand high gloss acrylic paint in white and green (or any other color you prefer)
plate or mixing tray
paint mixer or popsicle stick
1/2-3/4″ flat, soft bristle paint brush

Step One:  Blend your paints in variegated shades of green from light to dark as shown.

Paint the top rim and top 1 inch of the vase with white paint.

Step Two: Start by painting the top rim and top 1″ of the vase with white paint. Try to keep the line as straight as possible.

While paint is still wet, dip brush into second shade and create a new stripe, slightly overlapping with the first stripe.

Step Three: While paint is still wet, dip brush into second shade and create a new stripe, slightly overlapping with the first stripe.

Continue making darker and darker stripes all the way to the bottom of the vase.

Step Four:  Continue making darker and darker stripes all the way to the bottom of the vase. If you are doing more than one vase at a time, be sure to do each color stripe at the same time. Let dry completely.

Allow vases to dry then add flowers and display.

See, I told you they were easy! And fast! And cheap! And CUTE! It’s DiY perfection right there. 🙂
