DIY Vase

So I've spend last night and most of today on Pinterest looking at DIY and crafts. I came across a bunch of different projects I want to do once my summer school session is over!

Today I took some time for a DIY vase (and a cherry blossom painting which will be in it's own post later). It was fun and I forgot how relaxing doing something creative can be.

You take a bottle ( plastic, glass, etc) and use a glue gun to write or design whatever you want on it. Let that dry and then start panting the bottle however you want! I used acrylic paints, but I think the tutorial I found used spray paint.

Mine is a little bit messy. But it was fun to make, and it was really relaxing. Plus it was my first attempt.

    It's fun to make. I want to make more, more elegant ones. I think spray paint might work better, not sure.
