New Year's Eve Centerpiece

Ring in "2012" with all of those unwanted and outdated vases that have been just sitting around in the basement! I did add a few filler vases from my local Goodwill for a grand total of $1.25 for all four vases! My big purchase was the Universal spray paint - three cans and still have plenty leftover for yet another project! I added the tin house numbers for under $7.

Consider adding in fresh flowers such as white peace lillies or simple red roses! Adding candles inside the "2012" front vases luminates the numbers nicely. If you wanted to keep it simple, you can just spray the four vases and glue on the 2012 and use that as a hostess gift as well!

Project Steps
*Wash & Rinse your vases. Dry well
*Cover nearby items with drop cloths or old sheets to protect them from spray mist
***QUICK TIP: Stuff each vase with newspapers so you do not spray the inside of the vases. This allows you to fill with water & fresh flowers or candles
*Apply Universal's Primer - for all surfaces
*Allow to dry 24 hours
*Apply two light coats to each vase in Universal's Gloss Black, Gloss White & Metallic Titanium Silver
*Using a hot glue gun, glue on the 2012 numbers to the front of the vases
*Fill with candles & flowers
