Lately, I have been introducing a bit of maximalism into a few of my decor pieces. There is something about patterns on patterns on patterns that gets my creative side all excited. One of my favorite patterns to play around with is florals. So I created this DIY floral painted flower vase to really play up that floral on floral action. The vase came together pretty quickly and now I have a fun patterned piece that really pops on my shelves.

What’s great about this project is that you can easily complete it in about 30 minutes with just a few tubes of acrylic paint. And not to worry if you are not much of an artist, because I will walk you through the simple steps I took to create a cohesive floral pattern.

Materials:
– white ceramic vase (this one is from Target)
acrylic craft paint in 5-6 shades of pink, orange, yellow, and green
– paint brushes of various sizes and shapes
– paper plate or paint mixing tray
– bowl of water and paper towels

Step One: Add a dollop of each color of paint to your plate. Then begin by creating the petals for the biggest flowers and the focal point of your painting.

Step Two: Next, add in the stems, leaves, and small details like the center of the flowers.

Step Three: Next, you will want to add in a few smaller flowers and buds.

What do you all think about the pattern on pattern action of the vase? Too many florals? I love the over the top combo and think the vase will go perfectly in my colorful and patterned bathroom. You can never have too many patterns, in my opinion! xoxo. Kara
