Summer’s ending, but your house can still be bright and cheery. This simple DIY will show you how.

If your vases are plain and you want a pop of color, look no further! Here is a tutorial on bright, fun, simple, and colorful vases. Let’s begin…

Getting your supplies: First things first you will need acrylic paint (a different color for each vase). Acrylic paint works best but if you do not have any, regular paint will work as well. You are also going to need vases, size does not matter. You’ll need a sheet of paper or cardboard. The last item you’re going to need is a plastic syringe.

Step one: After you have all of your supplies gathered, you can begin. Pick a vase and the color you want it to be. Next, suck up as much paint as you can with your syringe. Then, squeeze the syringe until one-third of the base is covered with paint.

Step two: Now this is the fun part! Once your desired amount of paint is in the vase, put your hand on the top so that it is completely covered. Turn the vase over and wait until the paint touches your hand and fully coats all the sides.

Step three: Keep your hand on top of the vase. Next, carefully set down the vase on the sheet of paper or cardboard and slide your hand out. Let that dry overnight and in the morning you will have beautiful eye-catching vase.
