Faux Bois Vases

I loved these vases when I first saw them here at Centsational Girl.  I had to try it myself!  Here is what you will need for this project:
  • Glass vases
  • Silicone paste
  • Frosted glass spray
  • Color of your choice
The first thing you'll need to do is make your faux bois pattern on your vases with the silicone.  I have little to no confidence in my free hand abilities, so I decided to use a dry erase marker to draw my pattern first.

I erased the marker just before I added the paste because I didn't want the blue showing up on the inside.  After applying I thought it looked pretty darn good.

Now you're ready to spray the frost onto the vases.
 After allowing the vases to dry, I think I waited two hours, you can spray the color you decided on for the vase.  I did two different layers of paint and it was enough.

I let the silicone dry overnight, then sprayed the frosted paint on.  You might be wondering why this is necessary, and I thought that too.  I think it looks cleaner if you spray the frost on first.
This is the picture at Centsational Girl that made me want ot make the vases!

 I am so excited, I think they look so cute!
