One of my favorite things about blogging is the fun connections I have been able to make with my readers and with other bloggers. I love collaborating with other bloggers and today I am excited to be a part of a fun series, created by Stacy from Not Just a Housewife. Stacy put together a fun challenge where she and two other bloggers take the same accessory and has everyone put their own creative spin on it…hence the challenge Styledx3!
Stacy sent me this lovely vase from Amazon. You can get one here: Ceramic Flower Planter (affiliate). I knew I wanted to plant a little succulent in it because I am obsessed with them right now! I wanted to add some of my own flair and thought about paint dipping it, but wanted to try something a little bit different. I remembered this fun tutorial I shared a long time about DIY water marble fingernails and knew I wanted to try it on the vase to give it some fun color.
I love how it turned out! It is so easy and takes just a few minutes.
You will need the following:
Container (one you don’t mind getting nail polish on)
warm distilled water (works better than regular water)
3-4 bright nail polish colors (newer works best)
1. Add several drops of your nail polish to the water.
2. Gently swirl with your swirl stick to make a swirly pattern or leave drops if you want spots on your container or vase.
3. The water will have a film or residue on it…this is normal.
4. Quickly dip your container in the water and turn it so that the nail polish covers the vase.
5. If you want to add more, wait for the vase to dry and then repeat the process.
6. If you mess up or there is an area you don’t like, simply use some nail polish remover to remove it from your vase.
Let your vase dry completely! After it has dried, plant your little plant or your succulent and place it where you can enjoy your new colorful succulent plant! In this case, my oldest daughter laid claim on it. The other girls want one now too! Isn’t it fun?
Now I am wondering what other items I can marble with this DIY Water Marbling technique.
