Grab a clean glass jar or a bottle. Cut a strip of cardstock and wrap it around the jar neck.
Fix the cardstock on the jar with some tape.
Put a cloth or some paper inside the jar to prevent the concrete from dripping inside your container.
Mix the concrete (I suggest you use this one) and pour it around the jar neck. Add concrete until it reaches the jar top.
Hit the bottom of the jar to level the concrete and to take off the air bubbles.
Take off the cloth and let dry for 1 or 2 days, refer to the package instructions to find out the drying time.
Once the concrete is dry, remove the cardstock.
The cardstock I used has a white side who stayed stick with the concrete. So it was a little tedious to remove it. Use better the brown side or some plain cardstock.
Sand the concrete to have a smooth and clean finish. Then pass a wet cloth on the vase to remove the dust.
Grab some acrylic paint and add some color to your vase. I only applied one coat as I wanted the concrete texture to remain visible.
Remove paint stain with a clean cloth, let the paint dry and done!
