Introduction: The "Green" Green Vase

It is super easy to turn any plastic containers you may have around into vases and decorate them to match your decor. These vases are waterproof and washable on the inside, a definite plus if deciding to do a live flower arrangement in them.

You will need:
A plastic container
Gesso
Paints
Something strong enough to cut the top off your container
Sandpaper or sanding block
Paint brush(es?)

I show the original container, label removed.
Next we have it sanded. I sanded both horizontally and vertically to give the gesso a nice texture to stick to.
Remove the top, sand the edges.
Two layers of gesso.
First layer of paint, a base layer that will get covered by other colors later.
...and a finished vase. It could also, obviously, be sealed.

Thank you. I'm hoping to figure out what kind of flowers to put into it... nothing is striking me as "right" so far. But maybe I just haven't given it enough thought yet.
