DIY – Pier 1 Inspired Vase
I was inspired by a vase I bought from Pier 1 Imports to make a few of my own. The Pier 1 vase cost me about $30 but I was able to make a few that cost me only $3 each! Here’s how I did it.
The supplies I used were:
- Flat Black acrylic paint
- Metallic Copper acrylic paint
- Medium size paint brush
- Flat sponge brush
- Natural sponge
- Glitter Shimmer Glistering Gold spray paint
- Gorilla Epoxy (if you want to bind two or more glass pieces together)
You will also need to select the right pieces to create this effect.
With a flat sponge brush I gently brushed metallic copper acrylic paint over the higher relief pattern (careful to leave the black in the cracks untouched.) For the flat solid areas, I dabbed with a natural sponge dipped in black paint. Then I used the dry side of the sponge to lightly rub the area and give it more dimension.
With a little creative crafting you can have your own exotic pieces that look like imports from another world!
