Holographic Vase DIY

Holographic Vase DIY (click through for tutorial)         There are certainly some trends from the 90s that I am not that excited to see when I spot them returning to stores, but let me assure you that the holographic look is not one of those trends. I'M INTO IT! It totally gives me that feeling of sorting through my crazy stickers and Lisa Frank stationery, and I love all the pretty pastels that holograms can make at one time. I found this holographic vinyl online that's actually used to cover headlights, but I thought it was so pretty that car maintenance shouldn't be the only use for the material. Perhaps a vase shall I make?? Done!

Holographic Vase DIY (click through for tutorial)Take your vase and cover the inside rim with painter's tape. Since you only want to paint the outside of the vase, use more tape to create a barrier and completely block off the inside of the vase.

You could also do this for a planter with a different shaped container (although I think round containers show off the hologram best) and add some greenery to the top. I definitely want to hunt down some bigger sheets of this so I can cover larger items as well! Wish me luck! xo. Laura
