Give a second thought before throwing away any used glass bottle next time. I recycled some of mine into this vase using some simple and fun techniques.
Since it’s the season of Fall, I was inspired to make a Fall themed vase.
“Autumn is the second Spring where every leaf is a flower.”
To make this vase, you will need:
- A bottle ( I used a beer bottle)
- White glue
- Fall themed paper napkins
- Mod Podge
- Foam or a flat paint brush
Before starting, wash your bottle well on either sides with warm soapy water and let it completely dry.
Wrapping with yarn
Apply glue on the bottle and start winding the yarn around it. Make sure you don’t leave any space between two layers while winding. Glue small sections so that it doesn’t dry by the time you reach there with your yarn.
It will look like this once you are done winding till the rim.
You can use the vase as it is!
Some découpaging will make it more decorative and eye-catching for sure!!!
Cut out the desired patterns from your paper napkin. With the brush, apply little amount of Mod Podge on the yarn and gently press your motifs on it without any air bubbles. Then apply one or two coats of Mod Podge over the motifs and the entire vase so that the napkin motifs and the yarn get thoroughly adhered to the vase.
So why buy expensive vases when you can make such lovely ones at home without shelling out $$! Some interest, time and creativity is all you need to invest 🙂
