DIY vase from the dollar store

DIY vase from the dollar storeAre you looking for a quick and easy gift? Or a way to add a little “shazaam” to your home decor? I don’t know why I’m even asking that – of course you are! A DIY vase just like this one would also work for parties or wedding centerpieces. Though unless you love brights like I do, you’ll probably want to go with a different color palette (please e-mail me to be best friends if you would have this at your wedding).

It took me about ten minutes to make this minus dry time, so if you need several, it won’t take long at all. Click through to see how I made it.

Gather These Supplies

Supplies CollageStart with a clear glass vase as well as your paper and embellishments.

Cut the Paper AgainMeasure and then trim your paper to fit your vase – I cut the paper a bit shorter so that some glass would be peaking out on each end. Leave a little bit of length horizontally so that you can have some overlap after you Mod Podge (but not too much, try for 1/8″).

Spread Mod PodgePlace a medium layer of Mod Podge over the back of the paper. Work quickly so that the Mod Podge doesn’t dry before you get the vase down (you’ll have bubbles!).

Roll the VasePlace the vase down and start rolling – smoothing as you go. Use your hands to smooth thoroughly. Let dry for at least 15 minutes.

Paint the OutsideCoat the outside of the vase with two coats of Mod Podge to seal. Let dry.

Measure the ribbonUse the craft glue to adhere the ribbon to the top and bottom, covering where the paper meets the glass.

Glue the EmbellishmentsAdd flowers and buttons with craft glue. Let dry.
