Ceramic Vase Makeover

Ceramic Vase Makeover | City of Creative Dreams

You know when you are in a store and you figure you will wait for a product to go on sale before buying it? Well, I did that and the gold ones sold out. Which was fine because I ended up getting this way cheaper than everyone else. I bought these for $3.99 each at Michaels Craft store plus since it was orange, no one seemed to want them.

What I love is a good color switch! When someone says "Ugh I don't like the color so I am not buying." it leaves it open to creative people like me to say, "Oh yeah, spray paint here I come!" The weather is nice and I can finally crack open a spray can. I bought the Krylon gold spray paint it costs around $10.99 but with Michael's coupons, you can get 50% off.

These flowers I got also from Michaels Craft store for 60% of regular price. At first, I was going to buy the white ones but those ones were not in the best shape and of course, I couldn't say no to the blue ones.

In order for me to cut the stems off these large flowers, I used bone scissors. 
I also used the vases as a guide to where I should cut.

Next, is the fun part, placing the flowers into the vase.

What a huge difference! The gold vase mixed in with the blue flowers just gives it a more luxurious feel to it. Who doesn't love a little gold in their lives? It's good to try something new, I typically go for more silvers than gold but a girl is allowed to change her mind, her style once and a while.

Now I can sit back and watch the sun shine on my new latest design.

  1. Really nice!! Love the shade of blue!! It's true when they say "one man's trash is another man's treasure". You'd never know those vases were orange! I did the same thing with a pair of ceramic bunnies earlier this spring. All I could find was gold, and I wanted silver! BAM! 70% off at JoAnn's and a can of paint! Dona

    1. It is so true, Dona! I am sure that those bunnies looks amazing now. Thanks for sharing that project with me.
