Halloween decor in less than 90 minutes!

Remember those vases I posted about yesterday? Last week I saw this tutorial on Make it and Love it, originally from Martha Stewart. How cute are those pumpkin jars? Well I decided to replicate them but using these bargain vases instead. And the best part? I did this on my lunch break in less than 90 minutes.

I didn't have any newspaper around so I used trash bags to catch any spills (and there will be spills if you're anything like me).

After adding a little water to some orange and yellow paint I poured it in my vases.

Then you swirl the paint around until the inside is completely coated.

Add a little festive ribbon and some free hand cut vinyl and you're done!

  1. I love this idea and I think we all have some vases lying around. Simple and cheap, that's my kind of craft. I am a new follower from the Thrifty Home Hop. Vicky from www.messforless.net

    I'd love for you to link up to my pumpkin party:
