Decorating a Vase

November 3, 2004

Small glass vase wrapped in burlap, lace and twine.If you have extra, empty vases, cover them with cloth of your choice. Place a heavy object in bottom to keep the vase from falling over. Buy Styrofoam craft balls or doll heads to fit in the vase opening. Add facial features to Styrofoam balls. Use some yarn for hair. Make a cap from cloth to match the body. It is a good way to use extra vases for inexpensive gifts or knickknacks. I take them to sick friends for a "Get Well," or "Cheer up," gift.

You could pull a piece of nylon stocking over it and paint on that or take a circle of muslim or white cotton and pull it over and gather at the bottom and then glue it in the bottle top.
