3 DIY Vase Makeover/ Decoration Ideas

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all staying safe and healthy!

Like many of you, I have been DIYing up a storm and “ain’t no stopping me now, I’m on the move” lol

Today I am be sharing three DIY makeovers. Yes, you read that right, three!

The first one is a Dollar Tree Vase makeover DIY, the second is a Dollar Tree candle holder/votive makeover and the third is an upcycled hand soap bottle makeover. The hand soap bottle was so cute and made with heavy glass and I just couldn’t part with it.

1. DIY Flower Vase Makeover

For this project you will need:

A Tall Glass Vase

Painter’s Tape

Small Rocks

Metallic Gold Spray Paint

Hot Glue gun

Hot glue sticks

Follow the instructions below to update a plain glass flower vase:

  1. Find the midpoint length-wise of the vase and mark it with a strip of painter’s tape.
  2. Begin to adhere rocks to the vase with hot glue, starting from the bottom. Use larger rocks at the bottom and work your way up to the painter’s tape using the smaller ones. (My rocks are gold because I previously used them for another project)
  3. Cover the top half of the vase with more painter’s tape, scrap paper or a plastic bag and spray paint the bottom with your gold spray paint.
  4. FYI, I decided to add a stripe of gold later to the top half of the vase because I felt like it was a bit bare.

2. DIY Candle Holder/Votive Makeover

For this project you will need:

A glass candle votive

Rectangle beads or any shape that will has at least one flat side

Hot glue gun

Hot glue sticks

White spray paint

Follow the instructions below to make an update candle vase votive:

  1. Adhere beads to the candle holder in any pattern you wish using hot glue
  2. Spray paint the votive using white spray paint

3. DIY Ginger Jar/ Chinoiserie Vase

For this project you will need:

An empty bottle or vase

Modge Podge

Paint Brush

Blue and white geometric fabric

Pearl beads

Hot glue sticks

Hot glue gun

Follow the instruction below to make a Ginger Jar Vase/Chinoiserie Vase:

Note: I used a angled bottle for this project, but you don’t have to. I previously made another ginger jar vase where I used a curved vase. Find the tutorial here if that’s what you have. This version was easier and faster because I was able to use one piece of fabric, compare to the other.

  1. Cut enough fabric to cover your glass bottle with a bit of overlap for the end
  2. Apply mod podge with a brush on one side of the bottle
  3. Lay fabric on the side on which you applied mod podge
  4. Repeat step 3 and 4 until all the sides have been covered
  5. Overlap the rest of the fabric
  6. Gather the fabric as the top of the bottle and glue it down using hot glue
  7. Glue pearl beads around the top of the bottle or leave as is
