I hope I am not rushing things for you, but after having my Christmas decorations up until the first of February for my holiday photo shoot, I need a little bit of spring! And I am so excited about this project because...unlike the $89 Pottery Barn version…mine was free!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Baby Kitty2Baby Kitty was the one who first spotted it in their catalog…a pretty glass vase with a mercury glass base…and we knew that had to be our next project!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Spring Vase4Here’s how I did it:
  1. I already had some mercury glass candlesticks that I found at Goodwill year before last…when the mercury glass craze began.  Mine were only 99 cents each…and after three years I am calling that free! I also had a vase that was the perfect shape…leftover from a sweet gift of a bouquet of tulips.
  2. I liked the shape of the candlestick turned upside down, so I remove the felt cap on the bottom.
  3. I simply hot-glued them together with a small bead of glue around the top edge of the candlestick using the low temperature setting…and voilà!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Pottery Barn Inspired Spring Vase3And finally…just fill it with your favorite things! I used some eggs as a little preview of Easter just as they did in the Pottery Barn catalog, but I can also see it filled with lemons this summer…or acorns and little pumpkins this fall. I am going to have some fun with this copy-cat vase! And…best of all…mine was free! Woo hoo!
