DIY Scrapbook Paper Vase

Spring is here and one of the beautiful things I love about this season are the beautiful flowers that spring up this time of the year (pun intended) 🙂 and instead of having flowers just outside, I LOVE to bring them inside and put them in every room of the house in a beautiful vase.

One thing I look forward to every morning before I get out of bed is waking up and being greeted by a beautiful bouquet of flowers in a vase so lovely that the sight alone will put anyone in a good mood and cause them to enjoy their day. It used to be that having a beautiful vase could be costly but not anymore, especially with this idea that I am going to give you.  Having a beautiful decorated vase in almost every room doesn’t have to put a dent in your wallet. This post is going to show you how you can add tranquility, charm and fun to your rooms by just adding a vase.  And, the secret to it all, we’re using scrapbook paper!  I am so excited and I when I came across this idea I just couldn’t wait to share it with you. So….are you ready?  Cause here we go, as I show you how to add color, dimension and style to your home by simply using a vase. 😉

12×12 scrapbook paper of your choice (decorative designs recommended)
A vase or clear bottle of your choice
Scissors or paper cutter
Adhesive for glass (Mod Podge Outdoor glue & sealant )
Ribbon (optional) for bow
Flowers

Directions:

  • Measure the center of the bottle or vase going around. Also known as the circumference.
  • Cut a piece of scrapbook paper equaling the measurement of the circumference  for the center of the vase / bottle (as pictured above)
  • Place glue one side of the scrapbook paper and firmly press it onto the glass going around the center of the bottle
  • Do one more firm press making sure the scrapbook paper is secure and adhering to the vase / bottle
  • Let the vase sit for about 30 min and glue a ribbon onto the vase / bottle to tie in a bow if you prefer or let your family and guests see your new creation and admire your hard work. ;-).

Now go and get some flowers so you can enjoy your new décor for your home, that will be sure to brighten anyone’s day.
