After some of the big jobs I’ve tackled in the last few months, I love being able to sprinkle in some small projects. They don’t require much effort and can be a really fun way to express creativity.
This DIY started out as a catch-all holder and has transitioned into a planter. I think it could be made for a variety of uses! It is my take on the modern bubble vases that I have been seeing all around. I would say this one has almost post-modern vibes with some textured soul to it!
Here is a fun short video that shows the process:
Step by Step
I have had this small glass vase for years. I’m not sure where it came from; probably from a flower arrangement I received after one of my pregnancies.
I didn’t use primer but if you want to have a solid result, I would recommend spray priming before spray painting.
I found an arrangement with the felt balls that fit the flow I was going for. This was a fun moment to use creativity in the design.
Next, I used hot glue to attach the felt balls to the vase. While applying the hot glue, there seemed to be a blue hint keeping out from the sides of the felt balls. But once the glue dried, it was all clear.
The felt balls ended up having a slight sideways trend and I love the imperfection of it!
Let me know in the comments what you would use this this catch-all for? Remotes, pens, a plant?
I could see doing the same design with a plastic vase from the dollar store (I linked a similar style an acrylic vase), and using it in a kids’ space!
Let me know if you try it out, and keep on dwelling aware out there!
