Pretty vase in three simple steps!


I have always been inspired by cute mason jars decorated with twine or yarn. I decided to create a design of my own using yarn. I attached the yarn to this glass vase with watered down Elmer's glue.

I drew a pattern in the wet glue to guide where to put the yarn.

I added white paint to Folk Art #484Acrylic Paint, Brilliant Ultramarine (my favorite color) paint and added water so it would be easier to paint around the yarn.

Then I sprayed the vase with two coats of clear polyurethane.
