I’m so excited to yet again be collaborating with some amazing fellow bloggers! We are starting a new monthly challenge called Create & Share. We are going to focus on either one item or a specific decor style. This month’s item was this cute little vase from Amazon. This White Petite Wall Mounting Ceramic Vase retails for $9.99. It’s super adorable and very versatile. With that being said our challenge was to do with it as we pleased.
Since I got a little chalk spray paint happy in my previous post about DIY Wall Art I thought I would continue the trend to this challenge. It was a fairly quick and simple DIY project…which is soooo nice because I’m mostly redoing furniture and that’s not always the quickest of projects! 🙂
I started with a couple coats of Rustoleum Chalkboard Spray Paint. I liked the clean look of the white but I thought it would be fun to do the chalkboard so that I could switch it up with how I use it and it could be personalized.
I then used a Liquid Chalk Paint Pen to write “Basil” on the front of the vase. My husband is 100% Italian and an amazing cook so basil is used quite frequently at our home. If you use it a lot I highly recommend heading to Trader Joes because they have fairly large basil plants for only $3.99. It always lasts forever for us…when we water it! We can sometimes forget to water plants. 🙂
I cut a section out of the plant out and inserted it into the vase. I then used a suction cup with a hook such as these to place it firmly onto the window by our sink. I figured if it is in a place that I’m at multiple times a day I’ll water it right?!
Well here’s a test to see how long I can keep this plant alive! 🙂 Wish me luck! Now head on over to my friend’s blogs and see what amazing things they did with their mini vases!
