Faux Ceramic Decor DIY

I have a TON of above the cabinet space to fill in my home, but not much of a budget to decorate with.  I love decorative ceramic vases and jars, but even on sale, they can get pricey.  So, in my usual DIY fashion, I set out to find a way to make my own!
This post first appeared at Dollar Store Crafts, where you can find me with a new tutorial every Tuesday.

Supplies Used:
  • Wine bottles
  • DecoArt Stucco Texture Paste
  • Stencil
  • Paint


Step one:  Use a palette knife to spread a thin layer of the paste over the jar.  Let it dry.  If there are rough or uneven edges, sand the surface lightly before moving to step two.

Step two:  Hold a stencil on the bottle.  Use a palette knife to smooth a thin layer of paste over the stencil.  Remove the stencil.  Repeat until you have the desired design.  Let the paste dry.

Step four:  Paint the entire bottle.  I used a deep turquoise crafter's paint.


My first bottle is done!  I can't wait to get started on the next one.  I've been saving bottles and jars for a while, and now I have a use for them.  This would be a beautiful way to decorate a plain glass vase, too.  Have fun crafting and creating!
