Teacher Appreciation Week: Dress Up Vases

 

Just a cute quick idea for giving vases a little bit of pizzazz.

Materials:

Vase (Wal-mart $1)

Yarn/string (left-over from projects)

Beads (dollar store purchase)

Crazy-glue (gel)

(I have a lot of left over yarn from my crochet projects and I love to find any use for little pieces of yarn. )

– Dip the end of the yarn in the glue and quickly pinch and release to make the end stiff enough to string the beads. Once the end begins to fray cut off a little bit so you can keep going.

– Strung about 30 beads.

– Use a small bit of glue to attach the yarn to the glass. (This took some trial and error)

– Wind the yarn around tightly occasionally putting one of the string beads.

-Stop as you get close to the top and glue again. If they are going to get handle a lot, you should add a few more drops of crazy glue.
