Hi everyone! I have a fun project for you today! A Fun DIY gold washer vase!
I found a really nice glass vase at Goodwill the other day and thought it could use a little bling. this was a really easy way to upgrade a really inexpensive thrift store find!
I had a few packages of hardware store washers tucked in a drawer that I laid out on some newspaper outside.
The received an upgrade with a bit of gold spray paint left over from this project.
After they dried, I laid them out and played around with a few patterns. I decided on a random polka dot style pattern.
I found it was easier to apply the glue to the vase, then to the back of the washer and put the two together. I used a product called Welbond, it’s a non-toxic all purpose glue and it dried fairly fast as well.
Once one side dried, then I flipped it over and did the other side, I only had one washer that fell off and I had to re-glue it. I dind’t think that was too bad.
Once all sides completely dried, they were ready to go for some flowers! the glue is supposed to be water-proof, but I probably wouldn’t submerge the vase.
I cut some green lacecaps and cone flowers from my yard.
After I took the pictures I noticed a small hitchhiker, which caused my girls to freak out and yell “Earwig! Kill it! Kill it!”
They are such pacifists.
I like the modern look the washers give the vase, and it was such an easy upgrade! The gold is so pretty and adds a really nice flourish!
