Paint Your Own Vase / via Oh Joy!

Our markets have been bursting with peonies over here in Los Angeles, so today, we're showing you how to paint your very own vase to display all your pretty summer blooms! It's the simplest way to give glass vases a little personality and flair...

Here's how...
1. Beginning at the bottom of the vase, paint a section of pink. Working fairly quickly, paint your next color, overlapping a bit with the pink. It's helpful to add in a bit of water to your paint to make blending the colors easier.
2. Continue with the remaining colors.
3. Let fully dry, about 30 minutes.
4. If you'd like the colors to be more vibrant, do a second coat of each color. Let fully dry.
5. Finish with a coat of mod podge. Let fully dry.

Look how pretty they are! I love that it's subtle and still transparent so you can see the stems. We chose pink, green, and blue, but you can (as always!) pick your own colors.
