I've been working on our Master Bedroom. A much ignored room for too long! I've been wanting a navy blue chevron vase, like this one:
Problem #1, it's $65. Problem #2, it's too small. I needed something a little bigger for our dresser.
So, I decided to DIY it! And I'm so glad I did!
DIY Chevron Vase
Blank white vase (I found mine at Pier 1)
Vinyl cut in chevron pattern (.svg file found below!)
Acrylic craft paint
Clear Acrylic Sealant
I started out with two vases. I love the boxy one! They were both on clearance, so this was even cheaper than I expected. Always a plus!
I then used my trusty Cricut to cut out a basic chevron pattern.
(You can do this without a cricut. Instructions here)
I carefully peeled off the chevron, and applied it to my vase.
Because my vase was larger at the top than the bottom, I had to "fold" the vinyl over in a few spots to make the pattern line up right.
Next, it was time to paint!
I used basic craft paint; Martha Stewart brand.
I then peeled off the vinyl, while the paint was still wet....this is important! If you let the paint dry, the vinyl will take the paint off with it.
I then gave it a few coats of sealant.
And, my finished vase. Ta da!
It fits the corner of my dresser perfectly.
Totally lovin' the hand painted look.
A super easy project. Only took about 40 minutes, start to finish!
And my little square vase? It ended up on my table, giving the perfect punch of pattern!
I used the same process on the square vase. Super easy.
