DIY Confetti Vase

Hi there Over the Big Moon readers! It’s Kathy again from Up to Date Interiors here to share a fun DIY that will make you want to PARTY!  This DIY Confetti Vase was made just in time for my daughter’s birthday and I just love how it turned out.   Best part is, it only costs $1 to make!

Here’s what you need: 

  • A dollar store vase
  • Your favorite nail polish colors

How to: 

Use the darkest nail polish first and create dots using the nail polish brush. To achieve a confetti shape, wipe off excess paint and brush the paint on using a short motion. For more of a polka dot shape, dip your brush and lightly touch the vase with the tip of the brush. 

As you come up the vase, use fewer dots. 

Repeat with the next darkest color and so on.  

Come back to the darkest color for your very last coat of “confetti.”

Let dry for a hour before use!  



It will brighten any corner of a room! Fresh flowers, a branch, or even fun pompom stir sticks or paper straws would be super cute in this. Decorate bud vases with “confetti” for your guests to take home as party favors! 


I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer and have some time to entertain before school starts (or maybe celebrating school starting will be the best time to entertain!).
