Easy Halloween Holiday Craft: Pumpkin Vase

‘Twas the night before Halloween and all through the haunted house, Not a creature was living, not even the mouse, The windows were decorated with pumpkins…

It’s kind of a last minute Halloween craft, but it’s one that is worthy of sharing with you! If you need to spruce up a party table, need a cute centerpiece, or can use this idea to re-create something for Thanksgiving or Christmas, go for it! This simple (and CHEAP!) craft requires just a few ingredients and few hours of your time…at least until the paint dries.

Halloween Vase


Here’s how to get started:

I purchased the glass vase and Halloween pumpkin stickers at my local Dollar Tree for only $1 each.  The sticker sheet had more than enough stickers to make up to four or five vases, depending on size.  Purchase spray paint that works on glass, and any brand will work.  Instead of real candles I purchased a package of battery operated tea-light candles.

Supplies:

  • Halloween/Fall themed stickers
  • spray paint
  • tea-light candle or battery operated small candle

Instructions:

1. Place the stickers on your vase in a location of your choice.  For this vase, I wanted a design around the center.  You can keep your design all on one side.  Wherever you place the stickers the paint will not cover that section of the vase.  This is the area the light from your candle will shine through so make sure your stickers are at least two inches above the bottom of the vase or you will see the candle inside.
2. Press the stickers down firmly on the vase to make sure no paint seeps through the sides.  I used the thick foam stickers from the dollar store instead of the thin paper ones.  This way I knew I could easily remove them after painting, and I had no worries about the paint leaking through.
3. Place your vase upside down on a surface that is okay to paint.  You do not want paint to get on the inside of the vase so putting the top down is imperative.  If paint gets on the inside, it will block the light from shining through your Halloween design.
4. The vase required two coats of paint.  I sprayed the first coat lightly to avoid any paint runs or drips down the vase.  Let the first coat dry before adding a second coat.

Once the vase is fully dry you can remove the stickers.  Peel them off easily so to not chip the paint.
