How to turn a plain vase into a trendy hobnail vase using simple materials in just a few minutes.
I’ve reached the point where I dream of strolling the aisles of thrift stores again and find myself reaching the bottom of the thrift project pile. Anyone else miss thrifting like I do?!
If I’d known it would be the last time for months, I would have lingered a bit longer on my last visit.
But this vase I found for $7 at the beginning of March was one of my favorite finds in a long time.
Except this shade of pea green wasn’t really my jam. And I kept envisioning it with a hobnail look that I’ve been seeing in a lot of high-end decor stores.
If you have a vase, planter, or canister needing a perk, this is a cute one to try.
DIY Hobnail Vase
(Some affiliate links are provided below for convenience. Full disclosure here.)
- Vase (of course)
- Half beads (glass gems from the dollar store could work well too)
- Super glue
- Spray paint (I used Rustoleum Universal gloss finish in white)
1. This is probably the most Captain Obvious tutorial ever, but I just started attaching the half beads with super glue and placing them in a linear pattern, spaced evenly around the vase.
2. Once it was dry, paint.
Done. Literally two steps and even those were probably totally unnecessary to mention. Haha!
So now that the thrift pile only has 2-3 things left in it, the rest of the decor around our house better watch out. Because if we stay locked up for much longer, nothing will be safe from my paint brush or spray can. 😉
Hang in there, friends!
