Monogrammed vases make a great gift for just about any occasion. Personalize with your letter of choice, fill with fresh flowers, and make someone’s day, even if it is your own.
First, wash your vase and dry completely. You can remove any unwanted finger print or smudges with rubbing alcohol.
For my letter, I used glass silkscreens from Martha Stewart. They’re self-adhesive, washable, and completely reusable which is great if you’re making more than one vase. If you’re tight on cash, you could use blue painters tape and an x-acto to achieve a similar look.
Apply your stencil, making sure there are no large air bubbles. Because the letters are self-adhesive, you can reposition the stencil a few times until you get it perfect.
Apply your paint with a sponge brush. I wanted a delicate feel for my letter, so I used a translucent glitter paint. If you want your letter to really pop, I recommend using Pebeo Vitrea 160 paint (seen in this project).
Peel off your stencil while the paint is still wet. Air dry your bake (based on your paint’s instructions), fill with flowers, and enjoy!
