Step 3: When dry, take some sand in a bowl. Apply glue on the balloon and cover it with sand from top to bottom. For better results, divide the balloon vase into small parts for proper sand sticking.
Step 4: Allow the sand to dry and settle properly on the balloon.
Step 5: When dry, take white color paint and start painting the sand completely.

Step 7: Take a plastic bottle and cut out its opening curve using a cutter. Placing the marker on the sand vase, make a circular mark on the bottle opening and again cut the bottle. This would give you the lower stand to place the sand vase on.
Step 8: Using glue gun stick the plastic bottle below the flower vase. Again, apply some glue on the plastic stand and cover it using tissue papers cut in different random sizes.
Step 9: Cut the unwanted tissue papers from the vase base. And start with the painting.
Step 10: Firstly, paint the stand of the flower vase with dark blue color. Then color the sand vase in blue color. Give a dark to a light shade of blue as you move upwards while painting the vase.
Step 11: Take your favorite colors to make floral designs on the vase to give it a decorative look. ( You can use different colors to make different designs over the painted flower vase)
