How can DIY get anymore stunning? I love your vases. I had no idea you could be so creative with the gold leaf paint. I love the scrollwork you used to create your design. I think the gems just add more appeal to the vases too. What great ideas for some fun luminaries or flower vases. You could use it for either decoration.

These are beautiful. I would love them done in a cobalt blue. They have that depression glass look. Read the directions and they are a very simple project. You can get the vases at the dollar store. So that's a big savings. Everything else us equally inexpensive. These will make beautiful Christmas presents.

This is such a cool idea to dress up your home for the holidays! A cheap and easy homemade centerpiece!
