Vase in the WindowGoodwill always has a bunch of glass vases for sale. I decided to dress up one of these vases by wrapping it in colorful yarn. It turned out really cute!


Approximate Time: 20 minutes


Supplies for yarn wrapped vase.


  1. First, clean and thoroughly dry the vase.
  2. Starting at the neck of the vase, apply a thin layer of Modge Podge and adhere the beginning of the yarn. Using a paint brush apply some addition Modge Podge on to the yarn end to help hold it in place.
  3. Applying Modge Podge to vase.

  4. Begin wrapping the yarn around the vase, while holding the glued end of the yarn in place so that it doesn't slip. After you have gone around the vase 5-6 times if is probably safe to let go of the end.
  5. Wrapping yarn around vase.


  6. I recommend applying the Modge Podge no more than an inch or so at a time as it will dry out while you are wrapping. Continue applying Modge Podge and wrapping the yarn until you reach the bottom of the vase.
  7. Continuing to wrap yarn.

  8. It is important to keep the yarn taut as you wrap it, to ensure that it stays tight to the vase and adheres well.
  9. Apply a little extra Modge Podge where the yarn ends and cut the yarn. Hold the end in place for a minute so that it adheres well. Allow vase to thoroughly dry.
  10. Applying Modge Podge with paint brush.

  11. Once the vase is dry, you may want to spray the vase with clear coat. Modge Podge is water-soluble, so clear coat is recommended if you plan to put water and flowers in your vase.

Note: This same technique could be used on many different glass jars, for other uses. Have fun!
