Don’t break the bank. With this DIY on creating the cutest wedding vases you will make each table shine. Wedding season is officially upon us. From grand venues to elaborate outfits to week-long festivities, the glitz and glamour can undoubtedly burn a major hole in your pocket. While some things are best left to professionals, creating the perfect centerpiece doesn’t have to be one of them. If you’re tight on time and cash, and looking for something unique to wow your guests, these fun and playful DIY vases are sure to put the finishing touch on your big day.


 What you need:
– Glass vase
– Fine-tip paintbrush
– Multi-surface acrylic paint
– If you are using only one paintbrush, have a bowl of water available to clean your brush between colours.
– Newspaper to cover your workstation.

DIY Method: 

1. Gather your materials.

2. On a section of the newspaper, squirt out a small amount of each paint colour.

3. Dip your paintbrush in the first colour and begin painting small dots sporadically over the vase. You can cover the entire vase in polka dots, or a portion of the vase.

4.  Change or clean your brush, and begin with the next colour. Continue until all the colours have been used. You can add more polka dots depending on your preference.

5. Leave to dry for a few hours.

6. Fill the vase with flowers.


What you need:
– Glass vase (Any shape you prefer that has a wide opening.)
– Sparkles
– Mod Podge
– Foam brush
– Painters tape
– Multi-surface acrylic paint
– Paintbrush

DIY Method: 

1. Gather your materials.

2. With the foam brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge inside the vase.

3. Sprinkle the glitter inside the vase over the Mod Podge and swirl around until the vase is filled with glitter. You can choose to keep the glitter semi-transparent by using less.

4. If you want to add to the design of the vase, apply painters tape along the top of the vase and paint above that area. To create a fringe effect, use upwards strokes when painting, covering a portion of the tape. Peel the tape off before the paint is completely dry.

5. Fill with flowers, sea shells or leave as is.


What you need:
– Mason jar
– Aerosol Spray (Brilliant Gold)
– Plastic or rubber gloves
– Newspaper and open area

DIY Method:

1. Gather your materials.

2. Find an open area that isn’t too humid.

3. Put on a pair of gloves to avoid the spray paint from getting on your hands.

4. Hold the mason jar from the inside.

5. Apply spray paint over newspaper until the mason jar is completely covered. Set down to dry.

6. Fill the vase with anything of your choice (our personal favourite is baby’s breath).


What you need:
– Cylinder-shaped canister or glass vase
– Two packs of bamboo sticks
– Glue gun and sticks
– Raffia

DIY Method:

1. Gather your materials.

2. Heat up glue gun and apply glue over 2-inch sections (The glue will dry if you try applying it over the entire vase first.)

3. As soon as the glue has been applied, cover the area with bamboo sticks. They don’t have to be perfectly even, as uneven leveling can create a more natural, earthy look.

4. Continue working your way around the vase in sections until it is completely covered.

5. Take a few strands of raffia and tie around the bottom of the vase.

6. Add flowers, greenery or leave as is (Mom’s garden is always a good place to grab some greenery.)
