Painting Glass Vases With Spray Paint
I love flowers and my husband is all the time buying me vases of flowers. My favorite flowers are Daisies. I just love wildflowers and the simplicity of the Daisy. As you could imagine, I have quite a collection of flower vases of varying sizes and shapes. But, for the most part, they’re just clear glass vases. So, I thought I’d try to add a little color to my decor by spray painting one of my glass vases.

Tips For Painting Glass Vases
It really is pretty simple! But here are some tips that will help you have a perfect result the first time.
Wash The Vases Before You paint them
Before I painted the vase, I washed it with dish soap and water and then made sure it was good and dry. Then I took my glass vase outside and stood it on a piece of cardboard.
Use Several Coats of Paint
I used several coats of spray paint, allowing the paint to dry between each coat. Fortunately, it was a warm sunny day so the paint dried really quickly.
After about 3 or 4 coats of paint, my vase had nice even coverage and I let it dry.
I liked the look of the painted vase so much, that I grabbed a couple more vases from the house and spray painted those as well.
Add Your Favorite Flowers
The flowers just seem to pop even more in the blue DIY Spray Painted Glass Vases than in the clear florist vases, don’t you think? This really is an easy project and with all the spray paint color choices available, you’re sure to find something to match your decor just perfectly.
Other Ways To Decorate Vases
If spray painting isn’t your thing, there are lots of other ways you can decorate a glass vase.

Do you think you can spray paint colored vases. I have a big beautiful light mauve glass vase, and a pink crackled vase.
That is an interesting question. I have tried painting a white glass vase before, but have not tried painting a colored glass vase. I would think that you could, so long as the paint is made for glass.
Also, you may want to keep in mind that if the glass is sort of transparent (maybe translucent is the better word choice), that when light shines through the glass, the original color might shine through. I checked with my husband (he’s the expert handyman) and he said to give you this advice:
1. Choose the right paint made for glass.
2. You may have to use 2 or 3 (or more) light coats of paint if the original glass is dark and you are changing to a lighter color.
If you do give this a try, feel free to come back and let us know how it worked for you. We’d love to know! Good luck with your project!

Would you please share which type of Rustoleum paint you used for the cobalt color? Regular, stained glass, sea glass? Something else? Too many varieties out there.
Hi J – it was a Rustoleum American Accents spray paint!
