How to Make Sparkling Vases
Here at Scarves Dot Net, we love glitz and glamour. From sparkling scarves to sparkling centerpieces, we want it all. Granted, you can buy all the expensive glittered “conversation starters” you want. But, what’s the fun in that? We recommend DIYing them to really give people something to talk about without breaking the bank.
Follow these simple steps to create your own perfect table toppers (like glittered vases), and add more sparkle to your life!
What You’ll Need:
- Mod Podge
- Vases (Ours were Goodwill finds!)
- Paint Brush
Step One – Mix your Mod Podge and glitter. We used a ratio of 1/4 cup Mod Podge to 4 tablespoons glitter. (You will want to use plenty of glitter, so don’t be bashful!)
Step Two – Paint your vases, entirely covering each of them in one coat of the mixture you’ve prepared. At first, the vases will simply look white, leading you to think, “What have I done?!?” But…
Step Three – Be patient, and let your masterpieces dry. Let them dry overnight, just to be safe.
Step Four – Repeat these steps to make sure there are no non-glittered spaces!
Extra! Extra! We put some amazing DIY flowers in our sparkly centerpieces to complete the look. Just watch this video, like we did, to learn how to make the flowers. Go glitz or go home!
