Painted Glass Vials

Painting glass vials to make miniature vases is a snap and oh, so much fun!clear-dollhouse-vases

You know those little clear vials that you find in the hobby shops? The ones that are for jewelry making and can even be found in the scrapbook section of the craft stores? Well, you can paint them for an endless variety of dollhouse vases. They are perfect for 1:12 projects.

To keep the outside pretty and glassy, you will paint the insides of the vials only.  To do that, pour acrylic craft paint into the vase and swirl the paint around so that it covers the entire insides. Pour out excess paint and let dry.three-painted-vases-for-dol

You’re all done. Now you can add an adorable floral arrangement if you like. They come out so cute! (This works for full sized vases as well although I usually resort to spray paint on the outside of the vase for those.)
