Yesterday, I shared how I was inspired by these vases from Anthropologie’s website. I just think they are so pretty.
However, I think my vases look pretty good too! Here they are. Yesterday I shared with you how I created the beautiful turquoise vase. Today, I’m going to share how I made the purple vase.
Anthro Inspired Curvy Vase – 2
Next, in a well ventilated area (or better yet, outside) spray paint your vase. A couple of tips: (1) you will need to give your vase a few coats to ensure entire coverage and (2) be sure to spray your paint can upside down to clean out the nozzle when you’re finished painting.
I took a regular hand sewing needle and threaded it. I sewed a running stitch along the short, straight edge of the petals.
I gently pulled the thread tight and twisted the peals to get the looks I wanted.
I felt like my daisy needed more petals to fill it out. I cut out 16 more petals and attached them with a running stitch like I had done with the first 21 petals. I then gathered them up and when I had them laying how I liked, I took the needle and drew it up in the middle of the daisy.
Now every daisy has a yellow center. I found a nice, big, yellow button and sewed it onto the daisy. (If you find some of your petals are longer than you’d like, just grab your scissors and trim them).
It’s a super fun, easy, and inexpensive project. And you know what? It only cost me about $1. Which vase do you like better: the purple or the turquoise?
