Do you remember the floral and copper napkin holders I showed you a few weeks back? Well, I thought it’d be a great idea to have a matching craft. Something that can be added to the table or to a shelf and bring a little bit of spring to your home.

Now, I’m not somebody who will go completely overboard with pink and flowers, but little touches here and there add just a hint of a feminine touch as long as you steer clear of “Barbie pink”.

Pale pinks work beautifully with off-white and look pretty and grown up. So, if you fancy making this lovely little vase, just follow the simple instructions. Have fun.

 

here's what you'll need...

  • Silk flowers, I have used the same SIA cherry blossoms as in the napkin post
  • A small glass bottle
  • Off white spray paint
  • Hot glue gun
  • Old newspaper

    Pull the blossoms off the stem – a little tug and they’ll come off.

    Take the bottle outside or open all your windows, lay out the newspaper and apply the spray paint in a thin layer. Leave to dry for about 15 minutes before applying a second layer. Leave to dry.

    Once all the flowers are glued on, apply another thin layer of spray paint all over the flowers. This will give the flowers a matching look to the vase.

    That’s it! A small vase with a really pretty Spring feel.

    I hope you like it!
