How to Make a Hexagon Vase Tutorial

1. Clean glass vases to prepare them for paint.  First, wash with warm soapy water and dry.  Next use rubbing alcohol or a glass cleaner to remove and lingering fingerprints/oils.

2.  For blue vase version:  Starting near middle of vase draw equally spaced vertical lines around vase with puffy paint.  The height of the vertical lines depends on the height of the vase and how many rows of honeycomb are desired.

Easy way to update a simple glass vase and add some texture/design!

3.  After first round of vertical lines are painted, drop down approximately 1/4-1/2 inch and begin painting a second row of vertical lines in the middle of the vertical lines above. Continue around vase.

4.  Repeat step 3 down the vase.  Allow paint to dry completely before moving on.

5.  Starting with top row of vertical lines, paint chevron pattern to connect each vertical line to the next.

6.  Working down the vase connect the top of each vertical line to the base of the vertical line to the right in the row above and then back down to the top of the vertical line below and to the right.  All that’s a fancy way of saying zig and zag your way up and down between the rows of vertical lines so they’re all connected.

7.  Continue painting these zig zag lines around and down the vase until you reach the bottom.  Allow puffy paint to dry completely.

Note:  For the white vase version follow the same steps but start the vertical lines at the very top of the vase and end the vertical lines at the base of the vase.  For this version I made shorter vertical lines and also placed them closer together for a tighter honeycomb pattern.

8.  Turn vases onto mouths and spray with desired color spray paint/primer.  Follow manufacturer’s drying time for subsequent coats.

9.  Top vases with clear gloss spray paint for a polished factory finished look.  Again, follow manufacturer’s directions for drying times and additional coats

    I was going to throw away all the plain ugly vases that come from the florist shops. I must have a hundred. On second thought, I think I’ll just keep them and have some fun! Thank you for being such a great inspiration!
