Decorate A Dollar Store Vase

It’s time for our monthly blog hop challenge. This month’s theme is a Dollar Store Craft. The participants were challenged to create a project using mostly items from a dollar store.

It's sometimes amazing the things you can do with a dollar store item! Take this plain pink metal vase. Truth be told, I think I've had it for at lease a couple of years. You know how you pick up things and haven't a clue as to what you might do with them. All I know is that it is a good size - bigger than most, in a great color and just a dollar! So I got two! Lol! And who can resist these cool napkins - Keep Life Simple! Amen to that! And the pink in the napkins matches the pink vase! So I won't need to paint! How about that! Of course you recognize the Mod Podge sampler size! In addition, I'm using white twine that I'll braid for this project's trim and also use faux flowers that were picked up at the dollar store, too! All, great stuff found at the dollar store! 

I guess you've figured out that I'm going to decoupage the napkin onto the vase 
by first, lightly applying a layer of mod podge onto the vase. Then cutting out an oval shape portion of the napkin and separating the printed layer from the plain white layer.
 Next, lay the printed side on top of the mod podge, smoothing out using a plastic baggy.

 And let dry!
 Next, cut eight strips of twine, 2 1/2 times the length around the napkin cut-out. Then group in two's and braid. 
 Measure the braided twine around the napkin and apply mod podge to the twine at the beginning and end so it won't unravel when cut. Glue on around napkin motif for border.
And finally, glue-on pretty faux flowers for a lovely effect!
And then add a bunch in the vase to brighten any room!
