When I think of spring, I think of bright colors, flowers, rain, and chirping birds. It’s a time of renewal and freshness, which is what these cheerful vases represent as well. This decoupage craft project is great for kids and adults alike. They are wonderful for Easter flowers or as a Mother’s Day gift.
I used glass vases I bought at the craft store. However, you could use vases you’ve got sitting around, you know the ones. They came with your anniversary flowers or maybe you picked one up at a thrift store three years ago with the intention of painting it. Instead it’s sitting in your “crafts to do” cabinet. Yeah. I have one (or two, or three, but who’s counting??) of those too.
This can easily be done on recycled glass jars or mason jars as well. Add a candle or votive inside the vase and you’ll have a lovely centerpiece! While these vases are perfectly fine for holding fresh flowers with water, you don’t want to submerge the vases in water to clean them. That can loosen the finish of the decoupage medium. Instead, wipe them down with a damp cloth when they need cleaning or dusting.
Cut or tear your white tissue paper into pieces then cover the entire vase with them using decoupage and a paintbrush.
Cut the different colored tissue papers into squares and strips. Decorate the outsides of the vases with the shapes in whatever pattern pleases you.
Allow your vases to dry completely before using them. I gave mine a coat of gloss sealer as well. See below for the full printable instructions.
