DIY Color-Glazed Stacked Vases

There’s no better excuse to switch up your home décor, than a change of season. #amirite?! This year, I’m bringing in a seasonal vibe with DIY vases made with a big ol’ haul of drinking glasses found at the thrift store. I, Erin, love thrift shopping, because you never know what gem you’re gonna stumble upon, which is what makes it so much fun. 

Today, I am so excited to show you how to make these DIY color-glazed stacked vases. The color-glazed mix-and-match cups end up creating a festive platform to show off your favorite autumnal elements (for me that’s got to be white berry branches!) around the house. 

If you’re decorating on a budget this Fall, then you’ve got to check out this project…

Start off by washing the thrifted glasses with soap and water.

After they are prepped, then paint the outside of the glasses (including the bottom) with glass paint. For a more translucent look, mix the glass paint with paint thinner. Then, allow the glasses to dry on wax paper for 24 hrs.

After they have dried for 24 hours, then bake glasses at 325 degrees F for 40 minutes.

Once dry, place the small glass upside down and apply glue to the base of the glass. Next, place larger glass right-side-up on top of the small glass, so the bases are touching. Set aside to dry for 24 hours.

And that’s it! Fill with water and add florals like berry branches, sunflowers, dried wheat and even feathers!

Aren’t these DIY color-glazed stacked vases worth the wait?! I may be just a tad biased (ha!), but I think so. I’m super inspired by emeralds, ochres and blushes this season, hence my color choices for these. What color schemes are you decorating with? Would love to hear what colors are inspiring you this Fall!

    These vases are so pretty and I like that you can make them in so many different colors. I also love how affordable they are to make!

    These are so lovely. I love the pink especially. I want to try this but have a question. Would this project work with textured glass? I have glass cups with beaded glass dots along the outside. The beads are raised from the cup giving the glass a bumpy texture. Can you bake textured glass the same way you would regular smooth glass? Thanks!

    • Hi Erin! Thanks for the question! Texture glass should be fine when you bake it. Are the bumps on the bottom as well? If so, I wouldn’t recommend glueing them together like we did. Glazing them and baking in the oven would be fine though! Have fun :)

    This is such an awesome and simple DIY! I’ve actually been looking for blush colored drinking glasses. Since this paint is going on the outside of the cup, would they be safe to use for drinking? Thanks!
