DIY Flower Vase

5 years ago

This simple, yet elegant vase can be accomplished with just a few steps. I was surprised to see how easy this was and definitely will be able to accomplish it on my own. Even if you aren`t usually crafty, this might be a good one to try. Check out the steps below from Centsational Girl:

First, grab yourself a pretty vase or vessel and some stone clay at a craft store.  I used the Premier version and was happy to find its very soft and silky to the touch. I pulled off a piece and started to roll it out with my palm to create a smooth flat surface, and learned the warmth of my hand worked like magic.

The back of a butter knife works best for carving the petal.

Use the back of a steak knife (another experiment) to separate the clay petal from your work surface, then smooth with your finger you create little petals.
Pinching the petals at the base helps them curl up a little bit more. Build your blooms, large or small, by layering your petals one by one.

Smooth any imperfections, then leave the finished bloom to air dry overnight. Once its solid, use an adhesive like Liquid Nails to attach the bloom to the vase, but make sure you allow sufficient drying time for the adhesive to cure before standing the vase up.

The dry clay is paintable so if youre wanting color, then try a little craft enamel paint topped with a coat of high gloss.
