Candle Jars: Vinyl as a Stencil

Hi again, it’s Kaysi from Keeping it Simple!
Today I am going to share with you how I used vinyl as stencil on some glasses vases I got from the dollar store.  I love the look of these vases and the designs that they have now!

This is how I made it:
I took a vase and then I cut several 12” strips of vinyl.  The width of them varied from 1/4” to 1/2”

I then put the vinyl around the vase, making sure to push down hard to get all the air bubbles out.

Then using some frosting paint, I spray painted the vase all around.

Once the paint was completely dry, I peeled off the vinyl.

I added a little tea light to it.  And that’s it, super easy and simple.

I liked the look so much that I decided to do the same thing to a couple other vases and just used spray paint for some added color!

Thanks for having me here today!
I would love it if you followed along.
