idea theft

Yep, it’s that time again. The time where I steal one of the tutorials from the party, and try to recreate it for myself. The key word here is definitely try. So far, my version has ended up way worse than the original. But, hey! I’m trying here.

Today’s idea came from Chicy Creations. She made these super cute “bloom” vases out of glass bottles, spray paint, and vinyl lettering.

Aren’t they darling? Plus, they were really easy to make (and cheap!), so I jumped all over the opportunity to make some of my own. Since I didn’t have any vinyl, and was unable to find any as quick as I needed it, I decided to go with a textured bottle (IBC Cream Soda).

For some reason, my orange spray paint wouldn’t stick to the lettering on the bottle very well. At first, it drove me nuts. But, as it dried, I realized it gave the bottle a bit more depth and a more “antiquey” feel.

Here’s my finished product. Flowers and all. I picked the sunflowers on the side of the road. I am in love with those.

And, the dark version of the picture, just for kicks:

Those flowers make my heart sing.

Thanks for the great tutorial, Chicy Creations! It was such a fun (and easy!) project!
Be sure to go check out her site, you guys. You’ll find a lot of great inspiration, and I’m sure you’ll come away with at least one idea for a project. Make sure you take a look at her 3D flower art. I was so jealous when I saw it. Why didn’t I think of that?

    You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the comment love. It means a lot to me. I’m SO glad you guys are likin’ this new Stealin’ Friday thing.

    Tuzi Salz, I would definitely be open to selling anything I make on my blog. I have projects spilling out the seams of my house. It would be great to get rid of a few. I’m just not sure if anyone would be interested!
    If anyone is, feel free to shoot me an email.
