How to jazz up an old vase with painted raindrops

Create with paint! Projects from Habitat by Resene

Plain glass vases can be lovely to look at when full of flowers, but a little on the dull side when empty.

Why not turn your glass vase into something that always looks gorgeous?

Step 1-2

Vase detail


Resene Spring Wood

  1. Clean your jar and allow to dry.
  2. To create the raindrop effect, simply use a detail brush and testpot of Resene Spring Wood and dab straight onto the vase. You can either keep to rows of raindrops like this one or opt for a more random raindrop effect.

Top tip: Add a few raindrops in a contrasting Resene colour for an interesting decorative effect.
