This project would look equally nice using a white vase, so while you’re looking for materials at the local dollar store, keep in mind a white or clear vase will do. The pattern used for this Mother’s Day craft is called a quatrefoil pattern and it’s perfect for this project because it’s symmetry is easy on the eyes, but again, you can use any pattern and colour you come across.
DIY Pottery Barn Inspired Dollar Tree Vase for Mother’s Day
What you’ll need:
- Clear or white vase
- Mod Podge
- Sponge brush
- Accessory (a wooden ’S’ is used here)
Firstly, be sure your vase is clean, wash it with a mild cleaner and let it dry completely. This will remove any finger prints, sticky labels and other things that will prevent the fabric from sticking to the glass.
Measure and cut your fabric. Cut it long enough to wrap around the vase and wide enough to cover at least 1/2 to 3/4’s of the vase, length wise.
Thirdly, apply the fabric to the vase using the sponge brush and Mod Podge, begin by applying a layer of glue along the bottom of the vase, it’s easier to do this in small sections, rolling the fabric out as you go, running your finger over the fabric to remove and bubbles or pockets of thicker glue. Once again, set it aside to dry completely.
Once dry, flip the vase upside down and glue the extra length of fabric down onto the bottom of the vase. Set it aside again to completely dry.
Once the fabric has dried you can add your accessories, using the Mod Podge.
