Decoupage Vase

Spring is FINALLY in the air.  Daffodils are blooming and vases are waiting to be filled.  Plain glass vases.  Plain glass vases that can easily be transformed from drab to fab.


Want to transform your own drab vase to a fab vase?

Gather the following supplies:  a glass vase, decorative paper {I purchased mine from JoAnn Fabric}, scissors, paint brush, Mod Podge and flowers.


Start by trimming the paper down to an appropriate size for the vase. 


Spray the back of the paper with Easy Tack Adhesive to help secure it into place.  *I learned this the hard way.

When your paper is securely in place, apply at least 2 coats of Mod Podge over the decorative paper.


Patiently wait for the Mod Podge to dry.


Then, fill your vase with some beautiful flowers and admire.


And...this vase and those beautiful daffodils really do make me happy 'just because'.

  5. Oh, I love that! It's so simple, but yet really elegant! I want to do that! I don't have Easy Tack, because I'm always overzealous and bought this dizziness-inducing spray glue, but I'm sure I could sort it out!

    Very nicely done!

    1. Or some of thos $1 store glass plates....then turn them into the 'Pinterest fave'. The $1 store plate & candleholder cake plate! Of course, to actually serve food on them you'd need to line with plastic wrap, I guess...but would still work..oh, and using doilies!!!

  17. I've seen so many white "lace" vases in the stores! One piece of pretty (and inexpensive) scrapbook paper and you've taught us all how to transform these ordinary vases into beautiful art! Perfect project for my new mantel :)

  34. Love this! I'm not a hardcore 'scap-booker' but I do use the books of themed paper. Oftentimes they'll include a piece or two of beautiful, extra heavy scrolled paper, that I really didn't know what to use for. Now I have a use for those, and some of the 859 floral vases I have! Also, what kid wouldn't love taking card stock and cutting a snowflake into it, then doing this on a vase or even a $1 store glass plate, for a beautiful, hand hewn, holiday gift for Nana!? They could even take a patterned piece and snip out pieces to do the same. Your fantastic idea spawned baby ideas for me! Thanks to a fun, creative and energizing read this morning!!
