At one point in time I had five of these white vases. I'd set them up in a line on my large kitchen table filled with flowers for a dramatic centerpiece. But as most fragile things in my house (not including my son) I broke them. One by one the poor things fell to their death until only a single vase remained. I used it for awhile but quite frankly it's boring. So....
What you need:
- Boring Vase
- Cricket Vinyl for a Cricut Cutter
If you don't have a cricut cutter stickers would probably work just as well.
- Metallic spray paint
- Optional: Gloss or Matte Clear Coating Spray
Whenever I use this vinyl I end up having to tape down the edges because it has a tendency to bend up from sitting in the package too long. I've learned that painter tape works best. Cut several numbers or letters. Mine were set at 2 inches.
Peel the vinyl off and place around vase. Random cat assistant is optional and not exactly helpful.
Once dry carefully remove all the vinyl. It's easiest to use a needle to poke into and then peel up on the vinyl. I used my fingernail on a few only to scratch the dried paint.
At this point I would suggest spraying your vase with some sort of clear coat if you're going to be moving it a lot or using it for fresh cut flowers. My vase will be sitting on a shelf with fake flowers so I didn't see any need to. In all honesty I also had a little boy literally hanging from my leg so he won the battle of do I have time to do this....hmmmm...no. lol
