Painted Vase DIYGreat news:  One of the best shapes and sizes for this painted vase DIY is a large nuttela jar.

Yay!  Great excuse to break out the chocolately spread whenever you feel like it. (As if an excuse was required).

These are perfect for gifting a simple bunch of flowers cut from my garden – though as I’m not the most green fingered, I often supplement with flowers or foliage that I’ve bought.

Giving flowers in a ready made vase means your host doesn’t have to stop and look for a vase if they are in the middle of cooking.  They are also perfect for new home when vases may still be in the packing boxes, or new baby – when you receive lots of flowers at the same time.

Materials and tools required:

  • Jam jar -washed and dried.  Any largish jar is fine, but the nuttela ones with their flatish sides are perfect to embellish.
  • Paint and brush or sponge for applying
  • Masking tape
