Looking for easy DIY ideas? This DIY vase is elegant and super simple
We are always on the lookout for easy craft ideas, the less effort and preparation the better for us right now. So when we saw this little Rust-Oleum project we had to share! You probably already have everything at home to try this afternoon, all you need is some paint, a small paintbrush and an old (or new) vase – we’ll walk you through the rest.
So keep scrolling to find out how to turn old ceramic pieces into trendy terrazzo-effect statements. For more craft ideas, check out our article. This craft was made by Hester from Hester’s Handmade Home, so also check out her site for more projects.
You will need:
First step: tape your first shape
Start by gluing the triangle shape to your vase. To create the smoothest line, really press down on the tape and make sure there are no gaps for the paint to seep through.
Second step: paint between the tape
Take a small brush paint between the ribbon lines you just created. Here Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Lemon was used and we love the lemony color, but of course you can choose whatever suits your style. Add a second coat if needed and remove the tape.
Third step: create a smaller triangle
In the larger triangle, create a smaller one with masking tape, making sure the paint is completely dry first. Then go in with a clean brush and paint over the smaller triangle, then remove the tape when dry.
You can choose any shape you want, by the way, you don’t have to stick to triangles.
Fourth step: add your model
With a small brush and choosing another color (we like the gold used here), start painting random dots and strokes on top of your triangles. Imagine you’re creating something similar to a terrazzo effect, so it doesn’t need to be too fancy.
Do the same with black paint (or the color of your choice) then let dry. Then all that’s left to do is style your new vase and find a home for it.
