Can one have too many vases? Today I’m sharing an easy DIY ceramic vase to add to your rotation! The rustic faux pottery finish will fit any decoration style – whether you love farmhouse, minimalist, or japandi.

Check out the DIY Pottery Vase post for the in-depth tutorial and more DIY ideas!

For this DIY, you will need is a simple glass vase or a water carafe and some wooden curtain rings.

For the vase handles, use a hand saw or a rotary tool to slice the wooden rings in half.

Next, apply a few drops of hot glue on the end of the half-ring and press it onto the vase. Repeat this step with all the handles you prepared.

To achieve the rustic faux pottery look, you need textured paint.

For this DIY project, I added 1/3 cup of paint, half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda, and 1 teaspoon of clay. Feel free to mess around with non-food powders you can find in your home!

Don’t forget to paint inside the vase, at least a couple of inches down the rim, for a clean finish.

And voila! A faux pottery vase for under $10. These types of cool rustic vases go for hundreds of dollars at high-end stores!!! You can save yourself a pretty penny AND have a beautiful new vase – that sounds like a good day to me 😁

    And if you want a glossier, glazed-like finish I suppose you could add a coat of spray or liquid varnish?

    Is that powdered clay?
