Upcycling: decoupage vases

I saw some decoupage vases online the other day and wanted to give decoupaging a try. My first attempt looked similar to a grade school craft. You know, when you cover a jar with torn pieces of tissue paper with a lot of glue. I decided to go with the “less is more” rule and started over with a new design.

For the first vase, I cut thin strips of rice paper and decoupaged them in a vertical stripe pattern.

The small vase is a shout out to the bunting / garland craze and the third vase also uses thin strips of paper but in a sun burst pattern.

You can use your vases for decorative objects or storage containers.

A little tissue paper, glue and a jar and you can take a grade school craft to a new level.
