Spring is here, hurray! I love this time of year when flowers start peeking their heads up from the ground and the landscape is dotted with rafts of color. Here in North Carolina we are treated to banks of azaleas backed by dogwoods, towered over by stately pines. Cherry blossoms and ornamental pears are blooming every where, so of course, you need a pretty vase to bring a bit of this loveliness into your home. Today I am sharing a simple vase that I altered to capture that spring beauty.
This is really a quick and simple project that you could even let your kiddos help you with. I started out with a simple and inexpensive vase from Michaels.
I used a dropper to drip white gesso on my vase. I simply dropped white gesso near the top of the vase and let it drip down the sides. I also painted the green twine white that is wrapping the neck of the vase.
I used a Spellbinders Romantic Vines die to cut some greenery to tuck in with my beautiful Petaloo blooms.
