    WOW….they look great.

  2. Was just about to say these would look lovely holding bunches of spring flowers. Then saw your note about not filling them with water. Is there a paint that would be safe to use with flowers?

      I’m not sure that there is! For larger mouth vases you can always place a smaller vase with water inside. For the narrow mouthed vases, small bud vases fit nicely inside.

      I wonder if you coated the painted vase with a lacquer ,maybe that would allow you to use water in the vase I live in an area that is very hot and dry so I have various artificialilk flowers so I can change the flowers around ,you can buy pray on craft lacquer

        Hi Clo! That may work. Just read the back. Many are just “moisture resistant”, so I’m not sure a vase of water would last. Let me know if you try it! I would love to know. Thank you!

  3. I love the combination of the colors of blue and green vases. They are cool to the eyes.

    These are beautiful!! I would have NEVER thought you made these from basic clear vases.

  5. These are just beautiful! Thanks for sharing the idea and tutorial!

    Do you think using resin water would be OK so you could permanently set fake flowers in there?

      I’m not sure Mandy, but I don’t see why not! Let me know how it goes!
