washi tape vases

I love picking up bottles at thrift stores, so I had myself a little collection. I also love washi tape, I just can't have enough! I decided to make some washi tape milk bottles.
After cleaning out the bottles really well, I spray painted them white. The washi tape is really colorful and I wanted the bottles to be as uniform as possible. I figured by painting them white, the colors of the washi tape would stand out more.
After the paint dried I put the washi tape around the vases, added some fake flowers and a rossette. It was such a quick and easy project that brightens up my kitchen.

  2. They look gorgeous! Cheap to chic :) Did you prime the bottles first or just spray white on?

  3. These turned out great! The white spray paint was definitely the way to go. It really makes the washi tape pop. I might have to try this. I bought some washi tape but haven't used it yet.

  6. The washi tape accents are great, but save the red Chinese star design for special occasions - it is being discontinued! It was one of my favorites!

  25. I loooove upcycled vases. I decoupaged old wine bottles as a kid, but these are way prettier! And you can fit more flowers in them. I also wish I'd realized before now how lovely burgundy and pale yellow look together.

    I think these would be really popular on Kollabora, the online crafting and DIY community. Everyone there loves washi tape. Check out the site and see what you think! I'd be ecstatic if you joined—your photos are just lovely.
