Textured Vase DIY


I was having one of those days the other day where I wanted to do something to spruce up my space and give it a little refresh, but wasn’t willing to commit to a full week, or even day, to crafting. I discovered this project on one of my favorite blogs, A Beautiful Mess, and was instantly inspired to whip out my scissors and spray paint. It was a fairly quick project (other than watching the paint dry), and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I have always admired and loved Jonathan Adler vases, but was never a fan of the price tag – so this gives me the same quirky look to add to my space without having to pay a pretty penny for it (supplies for this project cost me under $10!).

Gather supplies. You’ll need: adhesive white foam, scissors, fine sandpaper (optional), white gloss spray paint, clear vases


Cut out shapes from foam. I chose to make faces on my vases, but any sort of geometric shapes/patterns could be really fun. Adhere to vase. If foam isn’t sticking, you can sand the surface down slightly to make it a little easier to grip.


Apply several coats of spray paint. Make sure each coat is completely dry before applying the rest.

Finish with a coat of gloss paint if you’d like more shine. Fill with fresh flowers or leave as is and enjoy your new one of a kind creation!
