Step 1

In a ventilated area (outside is best), spray paint your vase using even strokes. The first coat will be relatively sheer, but don’t fret. Once it’s dry, you can repeat the process, building up the opacity of the glitter however you’d like.

Step 2

Trim your stems according to the depth of your vase. By the way, we found our ROYGBIV array at the grocery store for under $10. Can’t find rainbow flowers? Try putting white flowers in colored water overnight for a DIY palette of pastels.

Step 3

Fill your vase with water, and plop your flowers into place. Arrange them however you’d like — we mixed all of the colors together, but you could also create rows of hues to capture a real rainbow effect.
