What You Will Need

  • $1.99 container from Goodwill
  • $1 skeleton from The Dollar Tree
  • Americana gloss enamels for glass in white
  • Hot glue and a glue gun


  • I was inspired by this original Pottery Barn vase but $99 was not happening y'all. So, I came up with this budget-friendly option that anyone can make. Start by painting the container with white paint. It actually took 3 coats to get really good coverage. Allow the vase to dry well in between coats.
  • After the container dries, cut the hand off of the skeleton with a pair of scissors and use hot glue to put it on the front of the vase.
