I honestly have about 5 clear vases stored in a kitchen cabinet right now that once housed pretty flowers. Well, the flowers have since died, and now I am stuck with just the vases. I very rarely throw these vases away because I feel bad getting rid of something that has nothing wrong with it. There is always that chance I may use the vases again, right? I wouldn't want to risk getting rid of them and then realizing I need them for something later on. I know you feel me. :)
In an effort to appease my husband, I wanted to try and repurpose one of the vases to clear up some cabinet space. I was going to add spray paint to my vase, but decided against it. Then, I was thinking I would pour acrylic paint on the inside, but I wanted to use my vase to hold flowers and didn't think the paint would hold up in water. So, I decided to decorate the outside of my vase with paper!
I started with a few pieces of colored cardstock and with a little help from Mod Podge, I glue my papers to my vase and then covered it with patterned paper. The best part of this project was ripping the paper pieces; it was so easy! I picked a pretty flower patterned paper to add some design to my solid colored paper.
How would you design your new vase?
