If you are looking for some affordable ways to decorate your home, then you may want to consider turning those plain ordinary vases into cute creative vases. To make a more creative vase, all you need is a few simple craft items and a little imagination. Here are some creative vase ideas you can try at home.
There are a variety of different containers that you can make creative vases out of. Those old square cookie or candy jars, round fish bowls, tall plastic or glass drinking glasses, actual vases, and other options work great. Choosing different shaped containers will give you more opportunity to get creative with your decorative vases. Let’s look at what you can do with the different shaped containers.
3 Ideas for Creative Vases
Square containers give you a lot of opportunity to get creative in making a vase to decorate your home. Here is a look at some other cute creative ideas.
The Popsicle Vase
With just some popsicle sticks, paint, and glue attached to glass, you can make some beautiful creative vases. Simply glue the popsicle sticks to the flat sides of the vase, and once the glue dries, paint the sticks with the color and design of your choice. You can choose polka dots, words, or any other design you choose.
The Rope Vase
Another idea for creative vases are rope vases. These are created out of larger round containers. All you need is a rope, a hot glue gun, glue sticks, and a clip. You simply start at the bottom of the vase and hot glue a small amount of rope and attach it to the vase (or round container). Continue to glue and wind the rope around the container until you reach the top. Clip the top of the rope to the top of the vase until the rope and glue sets completely, and then cut off any excess rope. This type of vase is great for beach-oriented or rustic homes.
The Colorful Straw Vase
You can make a cute vase with plastic straws, ribbon or string, and some double-sided tape. Take a round glass or plastic container, place double-sided tape near the bottom, the middle and the top of the container, and then place the straws on the tape until the entire vase is covered. Then tie the ribbon or string around the straws to add a little more pizzazz. The great thing about a straw vase is that you can choose straws for any season or holiday of the year, including black and orange for Halloween, orange and yellow for Thanksgiving, red and white for Christmas, or pastels colors for spring. You can even use red, white, and blue straws for Independence Day.
The great thing about decorating your home with creative vases is that you can use your imagination to create any style of vase that will go with your home’s décor. This means that you can have one of a kind vase that will make for great conversation pieces. The best part? Your kids will love these easy arts and crafts projects!
