Knock Out Knock Offs: A four month knock off series! #knockoffdecor Are you ready for the second month of the Knock Out Knock Off series?  This month, we are tackling projects inspired by Zara Home, which has some BEAUTIFUL stuff.  I was immediately drawn to this stunning Zara Home insect vase, but was NOT drawn to the $60.00 price tag.  Here is the Zara Home insect vase that inspired me.

I don’t know about you, but $60 for a vase is just not in my budget.  So, I decided to make my own version for less than $5.00, and I love how it turned out.  Check it out for yourself!

Materials Needed to make a knock off Zara Home insect vase:

  • Any vase that you like the shape of.  I chose this simple “Vasen” vase from Ikea for $1.79.
  • Insect stickers of any shape/size that you like.  Don’t worry about the colors.  I found mine at Michael’s for $2.00.
  • Metallic gold spray paint.
  • Clear top coat.

1) Clean your vase well with glass cleaner. 2) Spray paint your stickers with your metallic gold spray paint.  Allow to dry. Pin now, read later!

    So clever to paint the bee stickers gold, I would have never thought of that! I’d still be searching those sticker aisles looking for gold stickers, ha!

      Hi Amy! Believe me, I did search for gold insect stickers! But when I couldn’t find them, I figured I would try spray painting them. I am still a bit surprised that it actually worked, but now it opens a whole new world of possibilities!

      Thanks, Ashley! I searched high and low for gold insect stickers, but when I couldn’t find them, I figured I would spray paint some. It totally worked!
