Celebrate Spring with a Chalkboard Vase

15 Apr

I love flowers. In the Spring and Summer I pick them in our yard, and in the winter and fall I buy $6 bouquets from our local grocery store.

For a beautiful Easter centerpiece, a Mother’s Day present, or a fun surprise gift for a friend, create a chalkboard vase.

1. Buy some chalkboard paint.

2. Choose your container: a glass Mason jar, empty wine bottle, or even a bucket.

3. Clean the inside and outside throughly.

4. Paint. Depending on the look you’re wanting you can choose to paint the outside or the inside of the container. You will probably need two coats for perfect coverage. (If you plan to write on the chalkboard paint, be sure to choose the outside of the container for your paint!)

5. Write your message-and enjoy!
