Try This: Easy Decorative Vases

This DIY vase is beautiful and crafty.



Inexpensive glasses are transformed into vases with a simple wrap of handmade paper made using everything from cucumbers to kohlrabi.
Susan Wasinger
1. Measure and cut handmade paper (available at specialty paper and craft stores or online) to the right height for your tall, straight-sided glass with a craft blade or scissors. You can leave the top edge irregular or cut it straight.

2. Thoroughly paint the back of the paper with white glue or Mod Podge, a nontoxic acrylic d├ęcoupage medium sold at craft stores. Be sure the adhesive goes all the way to the edge.

3. Smooth the paper around the glass vase. Press firmly as you go to remove air bubbles. Let dry before using.
