Hello friends. How are you? I have a great treat for you today because today my friends and I are sharing some pretty spring time crafts that will help you welcome spring. I guess my craft is not so much a spring craft but I hope you will love it. Today I want to share with you another antique vase effect DIY.
I know I spoke a little bit about the popularity of these very organic and antique vases becoming very popular in home decor. I did an entire video tutorial HERE. A lot of you have enjoyed making your own and I get so excited when I’m tagged or when you send me photos of your own version.
Over the weekend I wanted to attempt my inspiration photo and I shared my entire experience on my Instagram STORIES. You can watch the entire process including a huge FAIL in between. But I think the end result turned out very similar to my inspiration photo which you can find HERE.
It’s obviously not as beautiful but I love it just the same.
For this you will need:
An old vase
Plaster of Paris
Matte Black Spray Paint
In an old container, mix one tablespoon of plaster of paris and dirt. Mix in about two tablespoons of water or more until a paste is formed.
Rub onto spray painted vase and allow to dry. Rub off some as much or as little of the plaster as you like. You can see that the bottle looks like it’s been sitting underground for years. This process has a lot of experimenting so no two will ever look the same.
With the larger vase, I went back and added a little more plaster and allowed it to dry, I then took some wet soil and just rubbed it all over the vase. Once dry, I rubbed off some of the soil. If you want to make sure that the soil stays put, make sure you cover it with a sealer.
I love the way it turned out and it might not be everyone’s cup of tea but you can have fun experimenting with different finishes. Take a look at THIS one for example. Or THIS one. They are so pretty and the antiquing effect is not as intense as this one.
I’ve also been collecting these fun pottery pieces from the thrift store. I happened to find those two at separate occasions but I’m pretty sure they’re brother and sister…ha. Here is an extreme closeup.
Well friends, that’s it for now. I hope you give it a go for yourself. Please don’t forget to visit my friends below and a huge thank you to my friend KRISTA for putting this hop together. See you soon. xo
