DIY Ombre Bud Vases

DIY Ombre Bud VasesDespite what the weather channel is forecasting for Utah at the moment, I’m going to push it out of my mind and focus on the fact that the calendar says that it’s supposed to be Spring. Maybe if I believe hard enough, Mother Nature will get the hint and push some of those warmer temps and sunny days my way. But, until then, I’m going to grab some fresh tulips and display these gorgeous DIY ombre bud vases on my counter. They scream Spring and are oh, so easy to make!

DIY Ombre Bud Vases

I picked a variety of pink hues for my ombre, but any color will work, so have some fun with these guys!

DIY Ombre Bud VasesHere’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • Painters Tape
  • 5 Glass Bud Vases
  • Spray Paint, 5 Different Shades (I used Rust-oleum spray paint in Candy Pink, Berry Pink, Magenta, Cranberry, and Apple Red)
  • Fresh Flowers

DIY Ombre Bud VasesUsing the painters tape, begin wrapping the top portion of your bud vase, ensuring to cover all of the glass areas.

DIY Ombre Bud VasesContinue covering the vase until you reach the point of where you want your ombre to begin. I covered my bud vases a little more than halfway, but the amount is up to you.

Use small little bursts of the spray paint, creating light patches of the color. Unlike typical spray paint projects, don’t try to get solid coverage. The unfinished, splatter look is what’s going to help you achieve that ombre effect.

Set the finished bud vase in a well ventilated area to dry completely.

Repeat the same process for the other 4 remaining vases, using a different color of spray paint each time.

Once they are all finished, allow them to dry overnight before using.

These DIY ombre bud vases are fairly delicate, so wash them gently by hand. But, if any of the paint happens to come off, they are easy enough to replicate in an afternoon and too pretty not to make again!
