I used my Silhouette machine to cut the kissing couple silhouettes from black card stock. You could also use a craft knife and some patience. I found the free use images on the internet. I then used some vinyl cut into the shape of a heart as my paint mask. Clean your glass well with alcohol, apply your heart, and burnish the edges well to avoid paint leaking under your masking. I added a heart on both the front and the back so that the vase is the same from both sides.
Then use Americana Gloss Enamels in Indian Turquoise on the entire jar. I also used this same color on the outside of the inner jar. My paints were provided by Decoart but you can find these same paints at Michaels stores near you or you can Shop Michaels Online to find the paints in a variety of colors. My jars each received two coats of paint.
Allow your jars to dry completely before removing the mask. I found it best to cut around the heart mask with a craft knife before removing. Now it is time to add your silhouettes and assemble your vase. My silhouette was a little tall for my opening so I just folded the feet. This is also what I used to tape the silhouette in place inside the jar.
Add a silhouette in both the front and the back heart, then drop in your inner jar, and you have a completed wedding vase centerpiece.
All that is left is to add flowers to the top and enjoy your creation. I love how it is like looking into a window at a couple in love.
Add some other wedding elements to your table and you have a gorgeous wedding reception table for your guests.
