I was tired of changing out my vase filler every season. And, quite honestly, I just wanted a change.
I did not want to get rid of the vases. I liked the shape and scale of them. I just wanted to give them a little more impact.
If you read this blog… then you know I have a penchant for painting objects white. White seemed like the obvious choice for these jars!
I wanted to paint on the inside of the vases and I followed the exact same steps I used to make my milkglass trees. (You can find that post here.)
Jars of different sizes
White spray paint
Cleaning solution (I use isopropyl alcohol)
1. Clean out the inside of the vases.
2. Tape a plastic bag around the outside of the jars and lids. Seal tightly around the rims with masking tape.
3. Using white spray paint, spray multiple thin coats on the inside of each vase. You may need to swirl the vase around to get the paint to cover hard to reach areas. (you might want to wear gloves, it can be messy)
- Yes, these pictures show that I was a crazy woman and spray painted in the snow! I’ve had such cabin fever lately… that one day when the temperature rose above 40 degrees I decided to spray outside. It was cold, but this was fortunately a quick project.
4. Allow paint to dry. Touch up any thin spots.
I admit that using different vase filler is an easy way to decorate for the seasons. But I am really partial to my white jars now. And I can stop worrying about how I’m going to fill them each season.
May I suggest white?
