Need a pretty Mother’s Day craft idea?

How about making mom a DIY personalized photo vase to display flowers? The best part is, you can pick up almost all of the supplies at the Dollar Tree!

These vases make perfect centerpieces for weddings, graduations, and other festive occasions.

This craft is based on simply using a label or sticker to create a “frame” for your photo after the vase is painted. My Dollar Tree had numerous shapes and options that would work for this project. You can also use a glass jar instead of a vase if desired.

Most of the supplies for these vases can be found at Dollar Tree.

Supplies Needed :


Adhesive stickers form the frame and should be applied prior to painting.

1.) Place a sticker on the outside of the vase where you’d like to display your photo.

Two light coats of spray paint form the perfect finish.

2.) Spray paint the outside of the vase. The key to spray paint is to spray a light coat, let dry, and spray another light coat. (I used Rustoleum spray paint in copper rose and robin’s egg blue.)

Very gently peel the stickers from the glass, careful to not scratch the paint.

3.) Once completely dry, remove the stickers. You’ll now have a little frame for photos!

The photographs are the added touch for mom!

4.) Tape your photos to the inside of the vase.

If using silk flowers, remove excess greenery to showcase the blooms.

5.) Arrange flowers inside of the vase. You can use faux flowers or fresh, it’s up to you! If using fresh, protect your photograph by placing your fresh flowers in a small cup with water first, then place inside of the vase.

Hip Tip: If you use faux flowers from Dollar Tree, combine similar colors, trim them down in height, and remove some of the greenery to give them a more trendy look.

These beautiful vases display families and gorgeous, seasonal flowers.

These dollar store vases turned out super cute!

How fun would it be to display these at a Mother’s Day gathering, and then give them as a gift. I think my mom will like the one with all of her grandkids! So fun! You can also use these as an inexpensive centerpiece idea for weddings, showers, graduations, etc. Such a cute and thoughtful gift idea, too!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
