How to: D.I.Y Gold vases

Yesterday, Sarah posted an inspiration board of what she has planned for her grandma’s 85th birthday celebration.  From the moment she got the news, Sarah’s been on the hunt for different types of vases to create a beautiful floral centerpiece for the night. Going with a East meets West theme, she wanted to use Gold as a focal color. After a long search, we found that its actually really hard to find solid gold color vases around Toronto for a cheap price. So, she came up with a very easy and simple DIY tutorial for all of us to enjoy and learn. Oh, and stay tuned for another fun and sparkly tutorial on Thursday!

– Glass vases (in different sizes and shape)
Krylon 18k Gold spray paint & Bronze Metallic spray paint 
Matte finishing spray


** Make sure you clean out all the glass vases with soap and water before your start. Also, work in an area where you feel comfortable spray painting! (you don’t want nasty gunk to be stuck on this beautiful vase!!)

1. Lightly spray the first layer of gold/metallic spray paint in short bursts to evenly coat the exterior of the vase. Once the first layer is completely dried, apply a second layer on. (Repeat this process until you get the desired shade of gold)

3. Coat with the finishing spray to protect the color and to avoid smudging

VOILA! Your very own gold color vase 🙂
