Textured Snowflake Vase

by Lynn Lilly, Nov 02 2017

Happy Holidays! Merry and bright is my current mood as I am planning for Thanksgiving and multiple holiday festivities in December. As the holidays are nearing my days are filling up, leaving little time for making the perfect holiday decor. I love this snowflake candle holder because it is a 30 minute project and simple to replicate quickly for large tablescapes and gifts!

DIY Snowflake Vase



  1. Create snowflakes on your computer and print on cardstock or draw snowflakes on a cardstock paper. Cut out snowflakes. 
  2. Spray the back of the snowflakes with craft bond and let them sit for 1 minute. Allowing them to sit will lessen the adhesive nature so you can easily remove from the glass. 
  3. Stick snowflakes sporadically on the outside of the vase. Press to make sure the snowflakes adhere to the glass.   
  4. Outdoors or in a well ventilated area, place the vase open end down on a covered surface. 
  5. Spray paint one coat. Wait 5-10 minutes and spray paint a second coat. You will immediately see the snow like texture.  
  6. Wait 10 minutes and remove the snowflakes. If you have problems removing them use a tweezer to pull up the edges. 
  7. Let the vase finish drying for 1 hour. 

Tip: The vase pictured was purchased from a dollar store! Use the project as a candleholder or vase. To add color fill the bottom of the vase with cranberries.
