How to Make a Modern Textured Vase

Skip expensive porcelain vases — create your own with a few scraps of lace, inexpensive hurricane vases and white paint. Filled with summer wildflowers, these vases add a modern touch to any home.


Materials Needed:

  • 1/2 yard lace with a finished edge
  • large or small glass hurricane vase
  • matte finish Mod Podge
  • matte finish white acrylic paint
  • 1" foam brush
  • paintbrush
  • scissors

Measure and Cut Lace

Measure the lace up against one of the hurricanes. Cut a strip of lace 4” from the edge, keeping the pretty edge on the strip.



Attach Lace to Vase

Apply a thick coat of Mod Podge on the top third of the glass. Wrap the lace strip around the glass, sticking it to the ModPodge.

Coat Vase With Glue

Apply a thick coat of Mod Podge over the entire glass, saturating the lace. Let dry.



Paint Vase With Acrylic Paint

Paint over the whole glass with matte acrylic paint. Let dry between coats. Paint on 3-4 coats, or until the glass is completely opaque.



Fill With Flowers and Enjoy!

Display your favorite flowers in your new faux porcelain vase.
