DIY Chalkboard Paint and Washi Tape Vase Craft Project

Two big crafting trends right now are chalkboard paint and Washi tape. So I figured, why not combine the two? Here are some fabulous handmade washi tape and chalkboard paint vases I created over the weekend from a Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino bottle and a Château Morrisette wine bottle. Not only do they look great, but they are a fun way to upcycle empty glass bottles!

To create your own DIY washi tape and chalkboard paint bottles, you’ll first need to select your bottles. Ideally, they will be empty. Rinse them out so there is no residue left in the bottles indicative of their previous contents. Then spray paint the bottles top to bottom with chalkboard paint. I used Krylon Chalkboard Aerosol Spray Paint for this project.

Once the paint dried completely, I then wrapped Washi tape around my bottles. You can use one pattern of Washi tape or several that compliment one another. It’s all up to you!

Next, you can write a message or name or a create a drawing on your chalkboard paint vase. These messages or drawings can be erased and a new message applied as often as you like. Therefore, this upcycled wine bottle vase is perfect for entertaining or as a wedding table centerpiece.

Now all that’s left is to add water and flowers to your vases! Create a simple arrangement with just one or two flowers or jazz it up with multiple flowers, then display.

  10. These are so cute! I have a chalkboard obsession (well, more of a chalk marker obsession). I have a feeling it’s going to transform into a washi tape obsession…..I’m trying to resist! But this is too darn cute:)
