Give a warm welcome to today’s guest poster, Shannon! Thanks for being here today to share this great, quick fall decor painted vase project.
Hi there SBLC readers!
My name is
and I blog at
Today I’m going to share a super…
(and I mean super)
simple craft that will result in a pretty decor accent, perfect for anytime of year!
-Make a Painted, Distressed Vase-
Grab yourself a vase.
You might have a few on hand already.
The more cut work, (nooks&crannies) the better!
I got mine at Goodwill for 99 cents.
Make sure it’s clean & dry.
Next, you’ll want to use a paint that is suitable for glass surfaces.
I used a (new to the USA) paint called
It’s a chalk based paint and it worked beautifully on the glass.
I decided on Cobblestone.
It’s a perfect neutral and I thought I could get lots of use out of my vase in this shade.
I like to move stuff around. A lot!
After my paint was dry. I grabbed a sanding sponge and just knocked-off the paint until I liked the look!
This idea can be utilized to make centerpieces for parties, showers or casual weddings too. Any paint color can be used and embellishments can be added to make them really personal too!
For Fall… I liked the simple, unadorned vase dressed in paint only. I can really enjoy the texture and cuts in the vase and I liked it paired with the branches, leaves and the natural elements of the wood and jute twine.
If you would like to view some more ideas for dressing up simple items… I have a some fun,

Thanks so much for having me today!!
It was a real pleasure
