DIY Milk Glass Centerpieces

I love the vintage, textured look of milk glass vases. The price tag, however, can be pretty hefty when you are planning to use a cluster on each table as your wedding centerpieces. Authentic vintage milk glass vases can cost upwards of $30 or more depending on its quality and age. It’s easy to make diy milk glass centerpieces using ordinary glass – in fact, this project can cost very little if you search thrift stores or garage sales for glass vases. I’ll bet you even have a few glass vases in your house that would be perfect for this project. But first, let’s take a peek at a real wedding inspiration piece styled by Justin & Mary Marantz and spotted via Pinterest from Style Me Pretty.

To do it yourself all you need is puffy paint, white spray paint, and glass vases (you can even use aluminum cans). Take a peek at this tutorial for details by Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This.

What brand of paint did you use!?!?!?!
I tried this myself with a brand from Muchaels, i got a lot of runny marks from the dripping. HELP!


i’ve been experimenting w this and have gotten a lot of drips…any suggestions?
maybe i’m just spraying on too much paint at a time?
thank you!


What a smart idea! I was wondering how was I going find so many milk glasses at different sizes for my wedding…

How about red? I think glossy blood red vases are hot! and has a great retro look to it.


This is gorgeous! Love how you showed us all how to do this as well!
