Flowers are a common gift for Valentine’s Day so I decided to make a beautiful decorated vase where they can be placed. Crafting your own vase can be as uncomplicated as you want to make it. I bought NO special supplies for my vase, using just what I had on hand.
Adding different dimensions and layers makes this vase stand out against simpler decor on a shelf or table. Using a variety of textures gives it more sophistication I think.
- fabric, burlap, ribbon of choice
- flowers, fabric or paper
- buttons, beads or rhinestones
- school glue hot glue
Thoroughly clean and dry a vase. Mine has been floating around this household for years, it’s one of my favorites because it’s very heavy and has a blue-gray hue. It’s usually filled with marbles and a fake flower.
Measure out your materials and using school glue adhere it to your vase. I like using school glue because it allows you to remove the materials if you ever decide to makeover your vase. It will simply wash off and you can start over. Layer multiple ribbons or fabric pieces to achieve the look you want.
My paper flowers were made using a paper cutter and quilling tool. These are NOT required at all. I’ve done them before with scissors and rolled them with my hands. Here is a simple tutorial showing you how simple it can be.
Arrange your flowers and buttons the way you want then hot glue them directly to your fabric/ribbons.
Now wait for your flower delivery.
