DIY Vases

Our July Pinterest party was at Tara's beautiful new home, and we decided to paint vases. I wanted to do two types of vases that I found on Pinterest, painting the inside of a vase and painting a vase with frosted glass. After setting up a well vented area and putting on a protective dust mask, we were ready to get started. 

For the frosted glass vase, I wanted to use rubber bands to give it a cool look. I pre-rubberbanded (I'm sure that's not a word, but I'm going to go with it) my vase at home the night before, and then sprayed it with three coats of frosted glass spraypaint. This vase cost me $0 since Tara purchased the spray paint and I had the vase and rubber bands at home.

For the vase where I painted the inside, I tried to find permenamal paint as suggested, but I had trouble finding it and then accidentally bought acrylic. I decided to try it out, since I wasn't planning to put water in the vase, just some dry twigs. The inside of the vase doesn't look great, but from the outside I achieved my desired look.
