DIY: Crushed Glass Vase

So, you've found a nice-looking vase, but it doesn't have much of a unique appearance in your eyes. Assuredly something that can hold your floral decorations and serve as an acceptable, if unoriginal centerpiece. You could use it if you had nothing else to fill the space with, but it doesn’t scream creative or festive in any way.

Let’s get to work on fixing that.

Transforming a boring, ordinary vase into a visual masterpiece is a surprisingly simple matter if you have time and supplies on your side. Just follow these instructions and you’ll be on your way to creating a vase worthy of being party’s centerpiece.

  1. Before you get moving with this project, you’re going to need to gather the supplies. To finish this DIY creation, you’ll need a vase, Mod Podge, a glue applicator sponge, crushed glass, and a glue gun.
  1. Now that you have your supplies you can begin the creation process. Set the vase down where it won't roll or move and start applying the Mod Podge with the glue applicator sponge. You're going to want to administer the Mod Podge to sections of the vase one at a time to make the overall project more manageable and so that it doesn't accidentally dry before you have a chance to set the crushed glass.
  1. Speaking of which, now that you have a section of the vase covered in Mod Podge, you can start applying the crushed glass. Just keep dropping the glass over the Mod Podge until you’ve covered all of it. Give the vase a few minutes so the Mod Podge can set and dry, then check to see how much of the crushed glass will fall off. Most of it should remain attached to the Mod Podge, but you will lose a few pieces. However, that's all right, you'll be covering those spots up later. Since you've finished this section, repeat this process until you've covered the entire vase in Mod Podge and crushed glass.
  1. Now that the vase is coated with smaller pieces of crushed glass, you can take the larger and more reflective pieces and start spot checking the sections of the vase where the Mod Podge didn't entirely take. Take your glue gun and apply the hot glue to the places that don't have any crushed glass and use the larger pieces there. This should create a beautiful reflective appearance.

Now that your boring vase has been turned into a stunning display, you’re ready to start showing off all of your beautiful floral decorations to your party guests in style. If this DIY project looks interesting to you, but you don’t have vases to decorate with, that’s all right! Just swing over to Idea Ribbon’s collection of vases and see which one suits your creative needs.
