Hey, hey crafty friends! I’m in Utah for SNAP Conference with 400 creative bloggers and having a blast meeting bloggy friends in real life! Today I have a quick project to share that’s perfect for Mother’s Day. It’s a faux etched vase that I made with frosted vinyl.
Remember the Mother’s Day flower vase from last year? I recently saw it in my mother’s living room and wanted to make one for my home as well. This time around I used frosted vinyl to create a faux etched design on the vase. The vinyl is a light, transparent silver that appears etched on glass and mirrors.
To make the faux etched flower vase I used a dollar store vase, frosted vinyl, adhesive pearl embellishments, and a flower punch. This project really couldn’t be any simpler to make, it took me maybe 10 minutes from start to finish.
I used the punch to cut flowers out, about 15 total, then stuck them on a vase. Usually when working with vinyl you want to use transfer paper but since this flower design doesn’t have intricate detail I just peeled the back off like you would with a sticker. A pearl embellishment fancied the vase up a bit and that’s it!
