Tips for Making a Pottery Barn Inspired Farmhouse Vase

If you’re looking to create a Pottery Barn-inspired vase using Dollar Tree supplies, there are a few tips to keep in mind.

Take your time with painting to achieve a smooth and even finish. Applying the white chalk paint in thin layers and letting each coat dry completely before applying the next one will give you the best results.

Using a ruler when cutting the faux leather strips can also help you get precise measurements.

Additionally, be careful when using a hot glue gun, as it can burn your skin. If you don’t have white chalk paint, don’t worry – you can use any white paint you have on hand or experiment with different colors to fit your decor style.

  1. Gather your supplies.
  2. Start by applying 2-3 coats of the white chalk paint to the entire vase. Let each coat dry completely before applying the next one.
  3. While the paint is drying, cut two strips of faux leather that are each 3 inches long and 3 inches wide.
  4. Fold one inch over the top of one strip, then fold the remaining inch on top of that to create a loop. Use the hot glue gun to secure the loop together. Repeat this step with the second strip of faux leather.
  5. Once the vase is completely dry, add a small dab of hot glue in the middle of the upper curved section of the vase.
  6. Place one of the faux leather loops on top of the hot glue. On the bottom section of the vase, add some hot glue and fold the faux leather piece back so that it creates a curved handle piece. Repeat this step on the other side.
  7. Let the glue dry completely, then your Pottery Barn-inspired vase is ready to display!
