Easy DIY Spring Vase Tutorial Project

Spring is in the air and time to brighten up the home after a long dark winter.  I started much earlier than most since I live in the desert and well, winter just didn’t happen this year for us.  Today, I want to show you a great way to dress up  a normally blah looking vase.  I think you will find this an easy DIY Spring vase project.  I am all about easy!

Materials Needed

  • Vase – 7 3/4 inches tall give or take and about 1/4 of an inch in diameter.  A Pirouline tin (that hold those yummy straw cookies works perfect) just look around your home you’ll find something!  The cookie tin however works wonders..
  • Paper Straws – I use Paper Mart for most of my crafting supplies.  Take a look they are .89 cents for 10.  They have a wide selection but you can also find them at Target.  You will need 4 packets of 10 for this project.
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Jute Twine
  • Scissors

Directions

  • Wrap your vase with double sided tape
  • Wrap twine tightly around vase so it sticks to the tape it should like the photo above
  • Take two pieces of double sided tape wrap one piece at the top & bottom of vase over jute.

It should look like this below……

For added charm wrap some twine around the middle and attach a pretty charm to it.  You can get charms at your local arts and crafts store on the cheap.
