With fall just around the corner I wanted to warm up our home by adding in earth tones/natural looking colours. So, I decided to DIY some thrifted vases by making them look like clay. Once fall hits and I really start to decorate I plan to add in some fall stems. Oh, and did I mention I’m using pancake mix!
DIY Clay Vase
This vase was .50 cents from the thrift store. You probably have something around you home that you could use.
I used craft paint I had on hand and mixed them together to get the desired colour I wanted.
This is the fun part! To get some texture and to change the consistency of the paint I added in some pancake mix. You could also use baking powder or something similar.
The one thing to keep in mind with using pancake mix is that it will soak up the paint. I recommend adding in a little at a time until you get the consistency you want. If it gets too thick- just add water!
Time to paint! I did roughly 3 coats of paint allowing enough dry time in between coats. The first coat generally takes the longest to dry.
TA-DA!! This is the final outcome. I love the texture of the vase that the pancake mix five to it! The best part is this only cost me .50 cents as I had everything else on hand!
