Easy Yarn Vase for St. Patrick's Day!

Hi! It’s Shannon from Rosyscription!

Are you growing tired of winter? Ready for spring? Me too. I have spring projects on the brain lately. More specifically I have green St. Patrick’s Day crafts on the brain lately.

Maybe it is because the holiday is approaching quickly. Maybe it is because “emerald” is Pantone’s Color of the Year . . . but something about the color green makes me happy and hopeful when it is dark and cold outside.

This St. Patrick's Day craft is the easiest thing you'll ever do! Bring a little luck into your home with Mod Podge and green yarn vase.

This green yarn in my craft stash was calling my name for some time. I loved the color and wanted create something with it for springtime. A pretty green St. Patrick’s Day vase for flowers seemed appropriate.

Want to make an easy yarn vase? It’s so easy and would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays this March.

Yarn Wrapped Vase

Supplied needed:

  • Glass jar
  • Green yarn
  • Mod Podge Satin
  • Small paper tag
  • Orange ribbon
  • Orange marker
  • Scissors

Step One: Working in sections, brush the exterior of your jar liberally with decoupage. Starting at the opening, wrap the yarn around the vase and the glue.

Once the entire vase is covered, you could stop OR brush more Mod Podge over the yarn and add more string in a random, criss-cross pattern. I think this adds a little organic texture to the vase. Continue to brush more decoupage over all the fibers, if desired. Allow the yarn to dry thoroughly.

Step Two: Write a fun or seasonal sentiment on a paper tag.

Step Three: Loop the ribbon around your vase. Thread both ends through your paper tag to secure it around the neck. Trim the ends of the ribbon.

Fill your vase with water and flowers and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day craft!

Note: I just used Mod Podge Satin formula to make this vase. In hindsight, Outdoor Mod Podge would be more durable with the water in the vase.

But I think if you are careful not to get the exterior of the vase wet, any formula could work. (You also could seal the yarn with an acrylic sealer. I kinda like the fuzzy texture of the yarn and I was concerned that sealer would mask it.)

Adding an orange ribbon and fun tag instantly makes this green yarn vase appropriate for St. Patty’s Day without needing to be covered with shamrocks.

And when that holiday is over, I can replace the orange ribbon with a pink one in time for Easter!  (Did I tell you I’m looking forward to spring? Mmkay, just want to be sure!)

Well, if the warmer weather isn’t here yet . . . at least I can craft for it, right?
