Birch Lane Knock-off: How To Make French Vase

5 Materials
1 Hour

Alright, you probably can relate. I came across a really pretty vase at Birch Lane for $65.99, I wanted it, but did not want to spend that money on a vase. So, I set out to re-create the look for about $3 instead! Check out how I achieved the look.

I started off by picking up a glass cylinder vase at the Dollar Store.

I then found this label (um, hi perfect!) online and sized it to fit the vase.

I bought some labels and printed the label as a sticker.

I used my paper cutter to get the label to be the right size.

I then placed the leftover label on the vase, and spray painted the vase a pewter.

I let it dry, and then removed the label.

I grabbed my printed label and peeled of the backing and placed it on my vase.

I then placed some floral foam in the vase, placed my hydrangea inside, and voila! My very own designer vase.

On Birch Lane for $65.99 Mine cost me only $3. How awesome is that? I hope you like what I did as well.

    Love the French inspired design. And at a fraction of the price.

    What did you type in to search for the label on line? I am terrible at using the correct "verbiage" to find what I am looking for. Wonderful project, thank you for sharing!!
