Pretty Vases & Creative Fillers
Posted By Tipnut On August 17, 2011 @ 11:55 am In Crafty Ideas | 1 Comment
Here are several different ideas for making lovely vases using jars, empty cans, inexpensive glass vases and other crafty materials. I also included a few filler ideas (that work with baskets too), they’re a cheap and easy way to add a pop of color to any room. A few of these have already been featured in other lists here on Tipnut but included here for one handy reference sheet, I’ll be adding more goodies to this page as I find them. Enjoy!
Glitter Striped : A glass vase is transformed with a bit of silver glitter and paint.
Wrapped with Washi Tape : Wrap a clear glass bottle or vase with strips of colorful washi tape.
DIY Blue Mason Jars : Made with Mod Podge or White Elmers’ Glue, food colouring and a clean jar.
More Washi Tape Ideas : Here are a handful of examples to give you some inspiration, all using washi tape to decorate.
DIY Etched Glass : Etching cream and vinyl lettering are used to personalize a plain glass vessel.
Fabric Wraps : Learn how to sew custom-fitting tubes to slide over containers.
Beaded & Painted : Puffy paint is used to add beads to old vases then painted with a matte spray paint.
How To Marbleize : Learn how to marbleize glass jars with 3 or more colors of acrylic craft paint and a gloss or high gloss spray lacquer.
Dipped-Style : No dipping involved, all it takes is a little measuring, taping and paint spraying to achieve this look.
Glass-Tinting : Pretty much the same idea as the blue mason jars above but this might spark some new ideas.
Fabric Covered Balls : Styrofoam balls are covered with squares of folded fabric that are held in place with pins.
Fabric Wrapped : Strips of fabric scraps are wrapped around balls and held in place with pins.
DIY Moss Balls : A bag of sheet moss, 4″ foam balls and spray adhesive are used to make these decorative balls.
Decoupaged : Strips of decorative paper napkins and Mod Podge are used to cover styrofoam balls, sealed with varnish.
