Carafe vases are a nice shape and perfect for arrangements of Christmas lillies and berries.
My clear glass carafe vase needed a bit of oomph for Christmas,
so out came the white paint.
All I did was pour a little paint inside and slowly swirled it around the vase until the inside was completely coated.
The paint I used was Dulux Aquanamel in white,
because it is water resistant, and a lovely thick paint.
This makes the coating of the glass exceptionally easy.
It took 5 minutes from start to finish for this glass painting project.
As I have already shared, here in New Zealand it is summer.
Which means no winter berries!
At the moment I have one Ilex 'Holly' shrub in berry,
So what does one do when one must have red berries?
Get out the spray paint of course!
then spray painted them.
After 24 hours drying and fume release time,
place into the vase.
I haven't put water into the vase.
as the spray paint seals the berries with a thick coating of paint, and preserves them.
Place vase on a coffee table, mantel or sideboard,
for a little bit of berry red and white fun.
