Chalkboard Vase

{Tutorial & Easy DIY}

I’ve mentioned recently my love for chalkboard paint. 
After creating the pumpkin chalkboard, I wanted to paint something else.  Looking around my house for what I already had, I thought it could be fun to paint a vase!
There are lots of different options already on Pinterest, but here is what I did with mine.

What you will need:
* Vase {mine was a rectangular glass vase}
* Chalkboard paint
* Painters tape

I wanted just a portion of the vase to be ‘chalkboard.’  {But you could paint the whole thing too!}
First, I decided how wide I wanted my ‘chalkboard’ strip to be.  Then I put painters tape on the glass above and below the width of the chalkboard size I wanted.

Next, I painted the open area between the tape. 
Let it dry, and then paint another coat with the chalkboard paint.  I ended up doing three coats.

When the paint is dry, carefully peel off the tape. 
Now, put something fun in your vase and chalk-it-up!

I had planned to tie a thin strip of burlap around the vase and put something festive and ‘fall’ in the vase.

Little man, however, saw it and decided it would be a perfect place for his Legos to hide.   
Sure, why not!  
I guess the vase is multi functional!  And, since you easily erase chalk, it can have multiple identities.

What will your vase hold?!
