DIY: Kate Spade Inspired Vase


If I had my way, we would live in a world sprinkled with pink flowers, gold, glitter and polka dots.  I'm always inspired by Kate Spade's use of these elements in their designs.  With a few simple tools, here is how I created this Kate Spade inspired vase out of a simple glass container in less than 30 minutes.

Materials needed:

 Glass container
Gold metallic spray paint made specifically for glass
Painters tape
X-acto knife

Step one:

Tape the container starting from the top all the way around. Once the stripes look perfectly straight, remove every other stripe which you will be spray painting. 

Step Two:

In a well ventilated area, spray the entire container. I let it dry a few seconds before applying a second coat. Let dry for about 10 minutes before going on to the next step.


Step Three:

Once the container is dry to the touch, carefully remove the tape.

Step Four:

Gently clean up any extra paint that may have spilled over the taped areas with your exacto knife.


And that's it! Just remember to wash by hand your sprayed pieces to avoid stripping any paint off.
