The supplies necessary for this project are really basic. You’ll need 5 small wood frames, a coaster, desired paint in different shades, and a glue gun. You’ll also need a glass or plastic container that fits inside of the completed vase if you’re planning on using real flowers. Begin by painting the edges and one side of one of the frames in the lightest shade of color.
Continue painting each frame a darker shade of the color. If you don’t have 5 tubes of the same color in different shades, you can just wing it by adding a bit of white to lighten the color or more of the darkest shade to darken. It’s tons easier if you just buy tubes of shades to complete the gradient look though! Don’t forget to paint the darkest frame on both the edges and one of the sides.
Allow the colors to dry completely. Apply hot glue to the edge of the coaster and place over bottom of darkest color frame.
Begin gluing frames together with an ample amount of glue from your glue gun.
Continue gluing and pressing the frames together until your vase is almost completed. The final frame (in the lightest color) should be glued upright so that the painted edge creates a finished look.
All that’s left to do is add a mason jar to the center and…
Voila! Your super cute and easy Wood Frame Gradient Vase is good to go! Just add some pretty flowers and nobody has to know that it only took 15 minutes to make.
