Upcycle Old Glass Flower Vases

Makeover your stash of clear glass vases with this easy gold leaf and confetti paint project!
It was a rainy afternoon and I needed some color so I started painting a bag of flower vases that were destined for a thrift store.

A little paint and easy-to-apply gold foil and you have something colorful for your home.
Watch how I made them here.

This could be done with several shades of just one color......Also, the Thermoweb Deco Foil (gold leaf) comes in tons of different metallic shades.

I used Americana Gloss Enamels for glass. I didn't bake these (which you can do to make the paint dishwasher safe) but I did add a coat of varnish to them when they were done.
Here's another old glass flower vase (and wine bottle) upcycle for you!

Materials I used for this project:

  • Americana Gloss Enamels   (Amazon)
  • Thermoweb Deco Foil   (Amazon)

      I think all shades of one color would look amazing, too, Nancy!

    They are bright, cute, and lovely. Have a few vases under my sink. Now I got to dig them out. Nice use for left over paint, too. Good share, Marc!

    Although I love crafting, I've become disabled but this is a project I may be able to do. My projects are my only way of making a living, so these may work to make house payment. Thank you so much and I'm going to be your biggest fan.
