This might be the easiest project to add a pop of glam to a plain old glass vase! Wanting to add some more gold accents to my space I took a round vase that I already had and added some fine gold glitter to it! This can be done on pretty much any vase, even mason jars! Oh the possibilities and colors!! All you need to accomplish this is a vase of your choice, painters tape, mod podge, a brush and any type of protective finish.
The first thing you need to do is decide where you would like the glitter to be and tape off the rest. You can always of course get crazy and glitter the whole thing, eliminating the tape altogether!
Next just brush on the glue to the section you want to glitterize. Yeah, I made that word up.
Sprinkle on the glitter and then tap the vase to remove the excess glitter.
Quickly peel the tape off before the glue dries so that you could keep a straight line and then add some new tape over all the exposed glass. Take the vase outside and spray a nice coat of your protective finish so that no glitter with sprinkle off.
Once it’s dry take your tape off and insert flowers!
The perfect touch of glam!
It has been a crazy busy week for me and I’m so happy that it’s Friday! I’ve just about finished all of my holiday decorating and I can’t wait to share some of the cute crafts I did this year! With the holidays here I thought today’s throwback would be a Christmas one! I’m bringing back a post I did on some cute Christmas center pieces. Come back on Monday where I will be decking the halls for the last installment of the Dare to DIY series and if that weren’t enough I’ll be back that same day with another post on a great handmade gift! I’ve teamed up with 8 other amazing bloggers to bring you 9 Handmade Christmas Gifts which is hosted by Tamsyn from Max and Me.

After decorating my living room there was one piece that was pretty bare and that was my coffee table. I had this over the top idea of a runner with garland draped all across with beautiful glowing candles until I remembered that I have a kitty who will easily find it as a play toy. Then while at Joann’s fabric store picking up some burlap and I came across some vases that were 4 bucks and I had a great idea! I hit up the floral isle and grabbed some faux garland that was 60% off and some berries also 60% off and headed home. I laid out all my material and started getting to work on putting everything together.
The first thing I did was measure out the burlap that I wanted to wrap around the vases. I knew I wanted the larger vase to have a wider cut then the smaller vases so I kept that in mind. I just wrapped the fabric around and marked where I needed it cut. I made sure to leave a little extra because I used a straight pin to hold it in place.
Then I pulled out my wire cutters and snipped off pieces of garland to put in the vase. Each vase got about 7 pieces.
After that was done I just began placing everything inside the vases. I used flameless candles and a pencil to help me push things down.
I placed the berries inside and then the greenery. When that was finished I wrapped the burlap around and that was all. Once I cut the pieces off of the garland it took me minutes to finish up. They sit beautifully on my coffee table now!
