While cleaning out my craft office, I came across a few leftover samples from our move. Instead of tossing them, I decided to turn them into a craft! Paint samples are free and full of colorful options which means you can use them for all sorts of crafty ideas!
I used mod podge to adhere the paint samples to the vase. I love the way the samples create a gradient, color block effect! This is a very easy technique and took less than 30 minutes to do. Let’s get to making!
Gloss mod podge
Sponge paint brush
8 paint samples
Damp paper towel
Step one: Cut the paint samples into individual color squares. Then dampen the back of the color sample with a wet paper towel to make it malleable. You want the paper to be damp, not wet.
Step two: Paint the back of the sample with mod podge and adhere the glue side to the vase. Seal all of the corners of the sample with your fingers so they are smooth to the vase.
Step three: Paint the top of the sample and the surrounding area with mod podge to seal the sample to the vase. While the glue is still wet, use your fingers to smooth out any corner that may lift. Let dry and retouch with mod podge if necessary.
Step four: Continue the previous steps around the vase.
