I’ve seen this simple marbleizing technique around Pinterest for quite awhile, and finally decided to give it a shot. I had a white ceramic vase laying around from clearing out my mom’s house upstate (she is 100% New York City gal now!). I thought a marbled statement on this vase would look cool with just a few small flowers. The whole process took about 15 minutes. I would rate this a very easy, and very satisfying DIY! Read on for the details…

WHAT YOU NEED

-an old basin or bowl, full of warm water

-nail polish

Next dip your vase into the water carefully. Remove slowly. Voila, your marble pattern is formed! Carefully pat with a paper towel to dry. If there is any area you’d like to fix, use nail polish remover and a cotton ball. Keep dipping until your desired marble effect is achieved. Let dry for 2+ hours.

Voila! That was easy. I would definitely recommend gently hand washing this vase if need be. Try with different colors and on different vases, mugs, jars, etc.

Hi I'm Sarah!

A friend once called me a "crafty ass bitch" and I loved it. I design, make, fix, style, cut, build, hammer, sew, solder, mix, weave, paint, photograph, edit, measure, pour, cook, plan, organize, repurpose & more.

My superpower is freakish amounts of patience. It's allowed me to endlessly tinker with design, DIY, photography and the good old internet--which I'm so grateful has connected us here!

My mission is to activate your highest will of courage, determination & resilience for creating the life you most desire. Stick with me, I've got some awesome things to share!
