Crafts: Using Chalkboard Paint to Personalize a Vase

I have seen chalkboard paint used many ways and thought I'd try my hand at blocking off an area on a simple vase I had and spraying it with a few coats of chalkboard paint.  I would recommend covering the entire vase with painter's tape or paper as the spray does find it's way to uncovered areas especially when spraying in a cardboard box.  It does however, come off easily with a scrubby sponge.

After seasoning the chalkboard area on the vase with the side of a piece of chalk, you can write any message you like depending on the occasion.   This would make a nice addition to a gift of flowers for an event or as a hostess gift.

Cute vase! I love chalkboard paint on just about anything! Is the spray version washable? I'm made some with acrylic paint on a wine glass and I have to hand wash it.
Thanks for sharing at Round Tuit!
