DIY Vase With Handles – Easy

Sharing is caring!

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 3: Prime Vase

When it comes to spray painting glass, it’s always a good idea to prime it first. I roughed up the surface with some sandpaper & then spray painted it white with a primer.

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.
