DIY geometric painted brick vase


I am so not ready for Fall.

Well, that’s not entirely true.

I do love Fall, and Fall decorating and thrifty Fall crafts, but before I am ready for PUMPKIN EVERYTHING I need some more summer.

This week I popped into JoAnn’s and saw this pretty faux bloom in soft pinks and tan with a touch of gold.  It was in with their Fall decor.  I held my breath by the cinnamon pinecones to protect myself from a full Fall takeover, grabbed my loot and headed home.

I wanted to do something pretty with this fluffy faux rose and it made me think of how pretty something soft like this looks with something more edgy or utilitarian.

Like a brick.

The brick has sat for weeks and I have not been sure exactly what I want to do but it all came together when this flower came home.

Here is what I used to make my Geometric Painted Brick “Vase”:

  • One brick and a masonary drill bit/drill that will make a small hole for your “vase” in the brick
  • Gold acrylic paint
  • Foam brush
  • Tape like painters tape or masking tape
  • Faux flower, bloom or succulent of your choice



I began by make a small hole in the brick just big enough for the flower stem and greenery.

I trimmed them down and they fit perfect.



Next I taped off my design and painted the gold in the areas I wanted to have filled in.

Forgive the photos it was getting dark and I was so excited!!



A little dry time, and I plunked my pretty bloom and greenery into their new home, and voila!

A super easy project that use can use in so many ways.



Thank you so much for reading friend, hugs and more hugs!


Stay crafty-
