Sew and Tell: fabric covered vase


This is a quick and easy way to change the look of your décor to match the seasons.


Simply wrap a vase you have on hand with fabric and embellish with seasonal accents. The vase I used is cobalt blue but the size and shape were perfect to hold my fall foliage.


I wrapped the vase in a circular piece of fabric and tied it tightly with string.



I used pretty trim to wrap around some eucalyptus pods and hot glued them to the fabric. I thought they looked like little flowers and loved the burst of color.


When I’m done with this look, I’ll simply remove the pods and fabric and reuse the vase. You can use any type of container to achieve this look – just dig through your recycling bin for water bottles, cans and jars.

  1. Great idea! I have several generic glass vases - it never occurred to me to wrap them in fabric. I see lots of potential for them now.

    Thanks for the inspiration! Pinning this so I don't forget. :)
