I want to share how I made this DIY Vase with handles. Recently, I was out shopping at Michaels and found this really cute vase with handles but for $40 I figured it would be really easy to recreate myself.
I already had a vase I picked up from the thrift store for super cheap that I knew would work perfectly for this DIY.
Here I will show you how I created this DIY Vase with handles pretty easily.

DIY Vase With Handles Instructions
Step 1: Pick Out Vase
You can use an old vase you have laying around, or head to the thrift store and probably find one that will work for you.
Step 2: Gather Supplies
Here are the supplies I used for this DIY vase with handles:
Step 3: Prime Vase
Step 4: Create Design
In order to get the look I was trying to recreate, I drew some lines on a piece of painter’s tape. Then, I cut it out and put it on the vase where I wanted it.
Step 5: Spray Paint Bottom
In order to protect to top of the vase, I put a plastic bag over it and then secured it on the vase with some more painter’s tape.
Then, I simply sprayed two coats of multi-texture spray paint to the bottom of the vase.
Step 6: Add Leather Handles
For the handles, I used 1/2″ leather cord and some hot glue. These handles are purely for decoration so just a dab of hot glue worked. (Just make sure people know not to pick it up from the handle!)
Once the handles were dried, I added a small sew-on snap with hot glue to complete the look.
Step 7: Add Some Greenery & Enjoy!
Lastly, just add some greenery to the vase and that’s it! I choose to go with eucalyptis.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out this vase with handles. Hopefully it inspires you to get creative with some vases of your own!
