It’s time for another Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge!! I’ve paired up with an amazing group of talented ladies to bring you a monthly thrift store challenge. Each month we will create a new home decor piece from an item(s) we’ve found at a thrift store, yard sale, resale shop etc. There is no budget or specific theme so we are free to let our creativity run wild!
Meet the Hosts
You can also follow our board on Pinterest for more upcycled decor inspiration!
I actually am rather tardy to this party this month. Our Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge is set for the last Thursday of each month, but some personal issues kept me off track last week and I wasn’t able to post. But you can still pop around to all the great crafts and blogs!
For my upcycle, I decided to give a plain glass vase a facelift. I’ve had this old, thin cardigan in my fabric stash for years. The fabric is so pretty, so when it ripped and I couldn’t wear it anymore, I stuffed it away for a future craft project. Today I finally did one!
For your own fabric wrapped vase, you will need:
Fabric of choice
Double sided tape
Ribbon or other adornment
- Cover your vase in fabric. I used a sleeve from my cardigan, which worked perfectly. I slid the sleeve up from the bottom of the vase, and leaving a few inches on both top and bottom.
- You could Modge Podge the whole vase, but with the thin material I was using, I elected to only Modge Podge the inside top of the vase.
- I folded over the open ends into the vase and smoothed it out over the Modge Podge.
- Cut off the excess fabric on the bottom. Modge podge the bottom of the vase and fold over the fabric to secure it. Let dry.
- Using either more podge or double sided tape, decorate your vase with ribbon or other adornments.
