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.
At the top of the vase, add a small dot of Quick Drying Tacky Glue. Place the end of the twine in the glue and begin wrapping the twine around the vase about 3/4 of the way up.
With some left over stain and a wooden leaf, the leaf gets a quick stain. Use an old rag to apply and wipe off the stain.
Glue the leaf to the raw wood slice. You can purchase a bag of these predrilled slices at a reasonable price. These are great for tags and Christmas ornaments too.
First, add a piece of twine at the top of the vase. You need to make sure that it is long enough to tie into a bow with tails.
04 ADD TWINE TO THE EMBELLISHMENT
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..
