Just last week, I was invited to SA Live and wanted to share with you one of the DIY’s that we created. I’ve made these fun Christmas vases before but it’s been a while, and I wanted to share them again. They make great centerpieces, candy jars and much more. Don’t forget to keep your eye out for the upcoming post featuring the other crafts I made on SA Live. You can see the video below. How much money we spend on items like vases every year is ridiculous. This is what has prompted me to really try and become more of a DIY enthusiast. I know a lot of you will be saying this vase project can hardly be considered a proper DIY project but it’s always important to remember starting small is nothing to be ashamed of. I’m a relative newcomer to the DIY world but I must say I’m enjoying every minute of it! In fact, I’m hoping to be able to take on a more challenging DIY project very soon. Any DIY enthusiast reading this will know the holy grail of our hobby is creating something of your own using a welder. Having sussed out a Dekopro welder online, I am fairly confident I would be able to give making my own bbq pit a good go. I will definitely be keeping you posted on my progress and I’ll try to fit in some blog posts about the dos and don’ts of welding at some point in the near future.
A fun fact: You can make these for under $15. Don’t forget that you can get creative and do not have to follow these instructions completely but you can make your own.
Materials you will need: I’ve included Amazon links to make it easy to purchase. However, you can head to your local Walmart or Hobby Lobby and find everything you need.
- Painters Tape
- Modge Podge
The first thing you will want to do is take your vase and painters tape and create your master piece.
For this project, I didn’t just put the Modge Podge on the vase and sprinkle glitter. I mixed the glitter and the Modge Podge. The cool thing about going about it this way is that when the glue dries it will keep all the glitter from falling off. No glitter mess! Keeping The Husband happy.
Last, thing you will want to do. Peel off the tape. You will want to do this right after you’re done painting. You want the glue to still be wet. If you wait too long it will start to peel off the glitter and mess up your straight line.
You are now finished and have a beautiful Christmas decoration. I hope you enjoyed and don’t forget to come back for the other two DIY projects from the segment.
