DIY Gold Polka Dots

September 05, 2012

I haven't had a DIY for some time now and I really was missing a project.  I like to have projects and little craft to do on the weekends.  I have two of these vases and thought they would look darling with some polka dots.  I  needed a little something for my desk.  I love how it turned out!!

 I used my circle punch and scrap paper to create a painting template for the dots.  I then taped them to the inside of the vases aligning my dots!  Then, I painted on the outside!  After the paint was dry to the touch, I placed the vases in a cold oven and turned it on the 350 degrees.  As soon as the oven reached the desired temperature I turned it off and left the vase in there to cool down.  Sort of a "cure" process.  I would not submerge my vases now that I have painted it, but rather hand wash it lightly.  All together from start to finish, this little diy took about an 2 hours to compete.  Super easy and a beautiful addition!  

Love the look with the hydrangeas!

Do you have any DIY to share?  I would love to hear what you have made lately!
