Hey, guys!! It’s Anika from Anika’s DIY Life back again with a quick and easy project. I hoard glass bottles and vases. My garage has an entire shelf full of bottles and I love giving them fun updates like this 5 minute marbled vase and the upcycled spice bottle “wind-chime”. Recently I turned my attention to this bottle vase and decide to make a Faux Stone Vase from a Recycled Bottle.
I bought the bottle vase at a yard sale about 8 years ago for $0.50. At the time, it “kind of” fit in with my decor, but over time it started to look out of place and needed an update. Nothing a little bit of spray paint and clay flowers can’t fix. Want to see how to create your own Faux Stone Vase from a Recycled Bottle with 3-D Clay Flowers?

- Old vase of your choice
- White spray primer
- Stone spray paint (I used Charcoal sand)
- Oven bake clay
- Colored spray paint of your choice (I used Candy Pink)
- Hot glue gun
Step 1 – Use rubbing alcohol or lemon oil to remove any sticker residue. Clean the vase well with soapy warm water to remove any old dirt and grime.
Step 2 – Give the bottle a couple coats of spray primer. Allow to dry. Coat the bottle with a few layers of stone spray paint. (Tip: when using the stone spray paint, use quick short bursts. This gives the best coverage and texture.)
Step 3 – Mold the oven bake clay into flower shapes. You can make flower petals by rolling a ball, then press it between your fingers into shape.
Step 4 – Bake flower petals in the oven per manufacturer instructions. After they cool, spray paint them to your desired color (or leave them the color of your clay.)
Step 5 – Glue the flowers onto the vase using hot glue.
What do you think of the Faux Stone Vase from aRecycled Bottle? That’s a big change. I love the texture of stone and the chic vibe of the pink flowers!
