Cleaning thrifted glass vase

It may have dirt, dust, grim and germs from people touching it or just sitting on the self. By cleaning your vase, if you are to use any glue or paint it will adhere better.

2. Let’s Upcycle

At the top of the vase, add a small dot of Quick Drying Tacky Glue or hot glue. Place the end of the twine in the glue and begin wrapping the twine around the vase. I started about 3/4 of the way up. You can start in the center. It depends on your preference.

3. Embellish It

I have a bunch of these wood slices and leaves left over from another project. You can paint or stain your leaf. I am using some left over stain that I had on hand.

The wood slice, I am going to leave raw. I love the natural look of it. Now glue the leaf to the center of the wood slice.

4. Add Twine To The Embellishment

Cut a piece of twine long enough to wrap around the vase and allow for a bow tie.

Slip the embellished wood slice through the twine. You can use my trick by taking a piece of tape and placing it around one end of the twine. It helps to fish the twine through the hole.

To finish it, tie the twine in a bow and trim the ends to the desired length. How easy was this upcycle thrift store vase for fall? It took minutes to make it.
