Shabby Chic Vase

      My Shabby Chic Vase, Love it, and it was Super Easy.
 This was my inspiration...

So first things first, what you need to buy:

glass vase
acrylic paint
sponge paint brush
sand paper
scrap material


    Bought my vase at the Dollar Tree!

The color is Colypso Sky, it gives that great shabby look!

Begin painting it, like you would anything else, just paint vertically.
The vase will look like this after its painted.

Sand paper is from the good ole' Dollar Tree, you get 12 sheets for $1 cut it into about 4 x2 inch rectangle, you can easily get about 10 per sheet which means you spend  less than a penny for each rectangle, you just can't beat that.

After sanding it down in random spots to look like its has aged and peeled, the next step is sealing it. I will either use Mod Podge, or this stuff Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage. Both work equally well, I can usually get this one on sale more often, the good news it does dry in about 5 minutes, bad news is its thin so you end up using more applications. I applied about 4 times, so that took 20 minutes, with Mod Podge I usually only have to apply 2-3 times.

Again, the end result. I added some scrap material, it was a mint green color, and I added some white to the Calypso Sky Paint, and painted one side of the material, leaving the other side the mint green for some contrast. Then I took the material and making a small cut in it I ripped the rest of it so it has that fray look. With one piece you make the rose by twisting the material and then rolling it, glueing it about every 1/4 inch. With the other half of my scrap material I twisted it and tied it onto the vase and with hot glue adhered the flower to the tie.

I had a lot of fun making it, and actually I am going to put flowers in it, on Tuesday and take it to my mom for her 56th birthday.

Thanks for tuning in!
Until Next time...


  1. Your DIY hacks are awesomely amazing and helpful. I will definitely try my hands on this once I get the best HND assignment writing services as this semester I am getting no free time due to lots of academic work. Can you please share some more amazing stuff like this so that we can get some more cool ideas.

  2. Wow! I love this Vase actually, and it’s quite simple to make, but I don’t think I will be able to make a similar one for myself. Wait, my brother is good at DIY crafts – I think I should ask him to make one – I will arrange the materials. Hmm, I have to see if he’s done with his Psychology Dissertation or not – because if he’s not done with it, he will definitely say no to my request.

  3. This is a useful blog for women because most women are interested in crafty. We are the writers of dissertation writing services and we have to complete the thesis for those students who are completing their study in higher classes.

  4. Thanks for sharing this interesting information I never expect this from you. Professional Assignment Writing

  5. Wow! I never thought such a beautiful vase could be made at home. I think I should try making one for myself. I have to look for a website that provides online dissertation conclusion services, so I can outsource the final chapter of my dissertation to them. Anyway, as soon as I am done with the order process, I will order the materials for this vase.

  6. CRM is no longer just a list of notes. It has become difficult to manage the relationships with your customers. Reliable CRM software like SalezShark CRM software will help you compete in any industry.

  7. virtual event What, then, is the thinking behind this rebranding? Reading between the lines, the core message seems to be that their product’s backend engineering has undergone some major overhauls. In practical terms, it seems to rest on three main initiatives: corporate event registration software, email invitiation and how much do event planners make


You = awesome. Me = grateful.
You can’t see me but I’m totally doing a happy dance, thanks for taking the time to comment!
