Want your own? Then let's get started!
1. What you will need for this project...
♥ A Vase
♥ Decoupage (Modge Podge)
♥ Some Scrap Fabric
♥ Paint Brush
Note: Most of these items were purchased from the dollar store. =D
Don't have Modge Podge?
2. Make your own decoupage! Here is what you'll need...
♥ Air Tight Container
♥ Paint Brush
♥ White Glue
♥ Warm Water
Mix into your container three parts glue to one part warm water. I used a four ounce glue bottle which required two and a half tablespoons warm water. Mix throughly, close lid tightly, and set aside for later.
3. Tissue Paper
This is a fun part to get kids (if you have them) involved with. Time to rip up the tissue! Tear your tissue into a variety of different shapes and sizes.
Now that you have all your tissue pieces it's time to begin frosting your vase.
Apply a thin layer of glue mixture and place tissue paper over. Coat tissue paper again with the decoupage. Repeat process until you are satisfied with the appearance of the vase. Once you are happy with the frosted hue of your glass, cut your hearts out of the scrap fabric. I made one large in pink and two smaller in purple.
5. Time to add some heart to your vase...
Starting with the largest heart apply your glue where you'll want the heart to be. Place heart over glue and press gently. You'll want to add another hefty coat of glue over your heart. Do not be sparing with this step. You will need to completely saturate the fabric in order to get a good hold on the vase.
6. Repeat with the smaller hearts...
Once you have all you hearts down you will need to apply another thin layer of glue mixture all over the vase. Let dry over night.
This is a great project for the whole family to get involved with. Let the kids help create it and Daddy fill it. =D Allow your man to save the money and buy extra flowers instead. The Babes never gets vases (he thinks they're all so boring) so I love this DIY.
Hope you all enjoy this sweet little do-it-yourself and I promise to post more easy tricks in the future!
