DIY Floral Vase Using Recycled Priouline Tins
Some craft projects are just classics that you can make in many different ways and never get tired of them. I think vases fit into that category! There are just so many different ways you can make /restyle a vase.
For this project I used an empty Pirouline Cookie Tin Can to make a vase. This would make a fabulous Mother's day gift, don't you think? Since Mother's day is less than a week away, and this only takes 30 minutes to make...
Aqua Spray Paint (or color of your choice!)
1" Foam Brush
Botanical Stock Image
1. Start by spray painting your tin. I used a nice aqua color.
2. Print out a botanical stock image/graphic to the size you need to wrap around the tin.
I highly recommend The Graphics Fairy for finding lots of pretty and free vintage graphics.
I used this Botanical Bouquet, because I love that it had fuchsias in it.
3. Use a 1" foam brush to apply decoupage adhesive to the back of the graphic and place the graphic onto the tin can, wrapping it around the sides.
You may notice that I didn't fussy cut out the design. I actually loved the look of the white background against the aqua can and the nice clean lines. Of course you can obviously cut out your flowers if you wanted to.
4. Use rhinestones to make a border along your botanical graphics. I used some that were self adhesive however they didn't stick to the metal too well, so I used a bit of extra glue just to make sure they were secure.
One thing I love about living in Washington is all of the beautiful flowers that grow here! We have multiple vases throughout the house filled with flowers from outside.
Do you love vase projects too? Have you made any restyled vases?
