Stuff a glass vase with newspaper to protect the inside. Wrap elastic bands in a variety of widths around the vase. Spray lightly with a layer of paint. Leave to dry for a few hours and then repeat, finishing with a layer of frosting paint for an opaque finish. Leave to dry fully, then carefully take off the bands. Fill with spray-painted gypsophila.
