  • These vases can be decorated in a number of ways. Use the steps below as a decorative guide and mix up the techniques to create a unique combination of your own!
  • Step 1Paint your vase white. Allow to dry. This is not essential but provides a good base for painting.
  • Step 2Paint your vase a bright colour. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Use glitter and collage materials to decorate your vase in different ways.
  • For less glitter wastage, use a scrap piece of paper folded in half to catch the glitter falling off the vase while decorating. This will make it easy to tip the glitter back into the container ready to reuse!
  • Step 5Attach pom poms or rhinestones to your vase with glue.
  • Step 6Draw zig zags, dots, or other shapes on your vase with CleverGlitz.
  • Step 7Cut leaves for your rosettes out of green adhesive felt and attach to your vase.
