Christmas Tissue Paper
Blings on a Roll or any decorative Christmas Item sticker,
button or ribbon
Old towel and sponge for clean up (Mod Podge can be pretty
Craft Glue (can obtain from any craft store)
Craft Glossy Finish Spray
Clean Vase before applying tissue paper.
Cut into small pieces or large depending upon size of vase.
Apply Mod Podge (either Glossy or Matte) and adhere
tissue paper pieces until vase is covered.
Allow to dry by either using a hair dryer or waiting
1 hour. I allow to dry over night and then I look
for any places on the vase that might need some more
'touch ups' with tissue paper. Holding up to a light
source will help greatly.
Apply decorative items; coat entire vase with Mod Podge
and allow to dry.
Finish the vase with a glossy, quick drying spray (I use
several varieties from craft stores)(
Enjoy! These vases make beautiful gifts. This type of
craft is not done properly in a day; unless you have the
time. It normally takes me 2 days to complete to see
the end result as a gorgeous handmade item that can be given
away to family/friends OR sold at craft fairs or on your web site.
