Birch Lane Knock-off: How To Make French Vase

5 Materials
$3
1 Hour
Easy

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 your vase and want to make one. You said you cut the label the size, then put the “leftover label” on the vase. What did you mean by leftover?

    Your printed label looks white. How did you give it the grayish antique look?
