Delightful DIY Mother’s Day vase

A heartfelt gift for a special mum

Mum – you’re the best! As Mother’s Day approaches, we look around for a gift idea that helps us express our true feelings. It’s not always easy to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift, but this craft project using porcelain brush pens could be just the thing. To create the heart shape, simply paint the vase with a multitude of dots in pretty shades of pink. With edding porcelain brush pens you can draw any design you choose on porcelain or ovenproof glass and show your mum just how much she means to you. The variable stroke of the brush nib makes designing really easy and the ink has a creamy consistency, ensuring an even colour distribution without any drips. Once the design is finished, leave the ink to dry for a short while before baking the vase in a preheated oven. After baking, the design will be dishwasher-safe.
