Easy DIY Vase - Budget Friendly Decor

This post may contain affiliate links. See disclosure page for details.

I have been in a crafty/DIY mood lately but nothing has been coming to me for inspiration. I decided to head over to Michaels to see if anything inspired me and there was definitely a lot of inspo! I'm always in the need for new shelf decor so I decided to DIY my own. I love vases of all shapes, sizes and colors. This DIY vase I'm sharing with you today has a little something extra. It's footed with wooden balls which isn't something I've seen before. This took me just a few minutes to put together (besides dry time) and I promise you can make it too!

This vase took just a few minutes to actually make, but two days total for dry time. The supplies are very minimal and you could even up-cycle a vase you already own. This DIY vase would make a fun and unique gift or a gorgeous decor piece. You could really make it your own and use any color you'd like! I think it would be really cute with color block paint as well.

Directions

Now let's make our DIY vase! First, take your 4 wooden beads and glue to the bottom of your vase using E6000 glue. Place them in even spots. Set aside and let dry for 24 hours. Next using a foam paint brush, paint a coat of white chalk paint in a thin layer.

This paint dries really quickly, so follow this up with two more coats. I painted a coat on the inside of the vase as well. You'll also paint the bottom of the vase and the wooden beads.

Once completely dry (and the paint looks even), add a coat of the wax sealant and let dry for 24 hours.

For the florals, I went with five white anemone stems but you can choose your favorite flower! I added in floral foam to the bottom of the vase and arranged my flowers. Add in sprigs of greenery to give your arrangement some depth.

Faux flowers can add up, so to keep this budget friendly keep an eye out for sales! Michaels usually does 40-50% off faux florals often.

That's really all there is to this DIY vase! I told you it was easy!

DIY Vase Tips and Tricks

Make sure your wood beads are placed evenly. Our vase is not 'wobbly' at all and sits evenly. Make sure to paint very thin coats of paint. You can paint more than three if needed, but I found that three is the perfect amount.

Don't skip the wax sealant unless you want your paint to chip! If you want to add real flowers, don't pain the inside of the vase.

  1. I just tried to cancel an order I placed with Bed Bath & Beyond and to my surprise I found a very convenient web chat through which they offer customer support. It is a Monday night and officially still Christmas Holidays. The agent was very kind and he helped me to deal with my oder in no time. His name was Clint, but unfortunately I could not rate the great customer support I received. So, I decided to write a review here. Thank you Bed Bath & Beyond for making things so easy for your customers even during holidays.
