Dollar Store Home Decor Vases


  • Glassware/jars (from a dollar store or dollar bins at your local craft store)
  • Enamel paint, in colors of your choice
  • Paintbrush
  • Washi tape, in 3 coordinating colors
  • Craft knife


  1. Wash and dry the glassware.
  2. Paint the insides of the jars using glass enamel paint if you intent to fill the vases with dry goods. Paint the outsides if you intend to fill the vases with water.
  3. Center and press a strip of washi tape running vertically from the top to the bottom of the vase. Add a strip of coordinating tape parallel to and other side of the strip. Note: on a smaller vase, three strips across may not fit. Locate the center, and place two strips vertically, about 1/8″ from the vertical center line.
  4. Continue adding strips of tape until each vase has 2 to 3 parallel strips down the front.
