DIY Gold Striped Vase

Springtime spent outside is just the best.  My favorite spot right now is our back screen porch: away from the bugs but still out in the fresh air.  We have the cutest little table and chairs, which has turned into my main warm weather DIY and craft spot.
My shopping adventures recently have been filled with fresh blooms, so I thought it would be fun for my next DIY project to be a pretty vase to display my favorite flower right now: tulips.  While at Target grabbing supplies for my vase project (a clear cylindrical vase, gold paint, washi tape, and paint brushes), I also headed over to the grocery section to pick up a case of new DASANI® Sparkling White Peach.
In addition to White Peach, I also found other new DASANI® Sparkling flavors that I can't wait to try: Strawberry Guava and Blood Orange.  Right now, you can find all of these varieties at Target for only $2.99 per 8-pack.  The slim cans are great for on-the-go, too.
These sparkling waters are so refreshing and perfect to enjoy ice-cold while crafting.  For my vase, I decided on a design with gradually bigger gold stripes down the vase.  To do this, I started by laying rows of tape together at the top of the vase.  As I continued to the bottom of the vase, the rows of tape got farther and father apart.  Anywhere I placed the tape would be an area where the vase would stay clear.
Once the vase was taped, I painted it with gold paint, making sure my brushstrokes overlapped with the tape to create crisp, straight lines.
For this project, I used three coats of paint.  When the paint was close to dry, I carefully removed each row of tape.  Not allowing the paint to dry completely allowed me to touch up any small areas where the lines were not perfect after tape removal.
I filled the vase three-quarters of the way with water and arranged my tulips, making sure to diagonally cut off the end of each stem and peel off the bottom leaf.  This will allow the tulips to thrive in the vase and last the longest.
Isn't this the perfect spring afternoon project?  The gold paint was the ideal sparkly addition to go along with my DASANI® Sparkling!

I don't typically go for Dasani water, but I love the pineapple sparkling flavor they have, and now I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for the peach! This is such a fun DIY, I have a bunch of plain vases and this would be such a nice way to change them up a bit.

I'm such a fan of the sparkling waters. I credit them to getting me off soda... thank goodness. All that junk I was drinking in those.
