DIY Project: Decoupage Vases with A.G. Dow

Here is another awesome DIY project by Blooming Buddy A.G. Dow! Check it out!



Materials Needed:

  • Glass vase (or jar, candle holder, etc.)
  • Mod Podge Gloss or Matte (I used Gloss)
  • Mod Podge Glitter (only if you’d like a glitter finish)
  • Foam Brush
  • Gift wrap tissue paper
  • Clear Acrylic Sealer ( I used Krylon)



Before You Begin: Make sure glass is clean and dry before beginning this project. Cut tissue paper into strips. I cut mine the length of the vase, and made them 1-2 inches wide. Set aside for later.


Step 1: Using a foam brush, apply Mod Podge in sections, being sure to stroke evenly from top to bottom. You will not need a lot of the Podge, because too much will make the tissue strips tear and fall apart when pressing them on. Take a strip of your tissue and stick to the vase.


Step 2: Continue doing this all the way around the vase. I applied two layers of the strips all the way around, but if you’d like a more transparent look, one layer will do just fine.


Step 3: When done with tissue strips, set aside and allow to dry for at least 20 minutes. Then apply a coat of the Mod Podge Glitter to add some shimmer. Be sure to wait 20 minutes before applying another coat if you want more sparkle.


I then set these vases aside overnight to allow them to fully dry. Once dried, I sprayed with a clear acrylic sealer to keep them from feeling tacky and to give a more polished look.



 My Verdict:



I first saw this project while perusing on Pinterest (as usual) and decided to give it a try! These vases are very easy to make, require little materials that are more than affordable and leave plenty of room for creativity! They’re also something fun that your child may enjoy doing with you…Of course, you’ll have to apply the sealer without the little ones around, but the rest of the process is simple and a breeze to clean up!



Thank you A.G. for sharing your project with us! I can’t wait to try it out for myself!
