Transform a plain vase into a gorgeous Anthropologie inspired centerpiece with this quick and easy DIY Makeover.
You guys how adorable is this Vase? I recreated this gorgeous design from the Anthropologie Home Decor Section.
I love all their designs and colors and have made multiple DIY projects inspired by them in the past such as this beautiful DIY Anthro Knock Off Painted Vase and DIY Gold Flower Mirror.
Today I am sharing with you guys this bright and vibrant Vase Makeover which honestly is super simple.
You could easily make a couple of these in an hour since it is that simple and quick.
This was my original inspiration and when I saw the pattern and color combination on the Anthropologie website I was sold and just had to recreate this on an empty jar/ vase that I had at home.
As I mentioned in last week’s post (which was my DIY Door Decor post for the holidays) that I am part of a weekly home decor challenge called Deck The Home.
Every week we will be creating projects and crafts around a certain theme leading up to the holidays.
This week’s theme is 2 Hour Holiday Decor and my take on it was to create a gorgeous Centerpiece for a colorful table decor theme.
So let’s jump right into it.
Tutorial for DIY Anthropologie Inspired Centerpiece
So you can choose any vase of your liking for this project. The Dollar store and thrift stores are a great place to find some fun vases as well.
I used an empty jar bottle leftover from something but in the past, I have even used an empty maple syrup bottle for a Vase makeover and it turned out Beautiful.
So get creative and get to recycling if you have a bunch of empty jars and bottles like I do.
I started off by giving the empty jar two coats of this light blush pink color.
This was the closest pink color I could find as the original but you could, of course, lighten any pink color with some white paint to get that exact light pink shade as the Anthropologie Vase.
Let it completely dry before moving onto the next step.
This was the color selection for the paints. Two shades of green, an orange, yellow and of course the base color which was pink.
The thing that I love about this pattern is the simplicity of it.
It does at first seem like a complicated flower pattern but it really is more so of an abstract design.
Just keep the original design in front of you and it makes the whole painting part really easy to follow.
Keep on creating the leaves and flowers all around the Vase.
I just layered on colors on top of the leaves and flowers as I was painting without waiting for it to dry.
This gave it that two-toned layered look. At this point you’re Vase is complete and you could leave it at that but the next step, in my opinion, is what gives it that Anthropologie look.
I apply a thin coat of Resin to all of the Vases as it gives such a beautiful glossy finish.
I have used this on so many projects and just recently transformed a Thrifted lamp and made a DIY Yarn Tray with Resin that you have to check out.
Pour equal amounts resin and hardener and mix it for three minutes.
Using a paintbrush apply a layer of Resin all around the painted Jar.
Let it dry for at least a few hours to a whole day.
This is also an optional step of this makeover but I loved how it transformed it instantly into something much more expensive.
I used the lid of the Jar that I used for this project and gave it a few coats of the metallic spray paint.
When it was dry I attached it to the base of the Vase with some glue.
And here is the final result.
What do you guys think?
