St. Patrick's Day Decor

i don't do a whole lot of decorating for st. patricks day .
but...  i did get my shelf all decorated this past weekend!

besides my st. patty's day subway art i have little else as far as decorations go for the kiss me-i'm irish holiday. so i grabbed my trusty topiaries (from target years ago), my new white owl that i grabbed at Christmas time at rod works and some old ugly vases i had sitting under the sink.
[old vases from under the sink-i've also seen tons of them at the thrift store]

i had been inspired by sugar and charm's awesome vase make-over... so i decided to try it out myself.

i totally made mine the lazy/cheap way.
i just poured the paint straight into the vase (it took about 1-2oz bottle for each vase) and brushed the paint around a little.  then i just sat the vase on it's side (rotating it around every couple minutes) and let the paint drip around until it all was covered in a nice thick coat. so super easy!!

and now i have pretty green vases that cost me nothing!
(since i already had the vases and the paint)
((i added a little piece of wood under the one vase because i thought it needed just a tad bit more height))

eta: i used regular acrylic paint. i didn't add anything to it. (i don't plan to put anything in the vases. ever.)

unfortunately i only have two of the paint color names.

(i was being an irresponsible blogger and threw one empty bottle away)
- delta ceramcoat light foliage green
- jo-ann craft essentials grasshopper
- for the third color just pick a darker color that coordinates with both of the others.

do you decorate for st. patty's day?
(have you done it yet?)
