Wrap a Vase for Christmas

By Partycraftsecrets @partycraftsecrt
Wrap a vase for Christmas It's no secret that there's plenty of wrapping paper floating around the house at Christmas time.  Here's one thing you can do with those left over strips: wrap a vase.

Here's how:

  1. Grab a series of straight-edged vases,
  2. Use strips of wrapping paper (or you can use strips of Partycraft printpaper as I did!)
  3. Use temporary-tac or double sided tape to stick it in place.
  4. Carefully add water and a flower to each vase!

Note: you can wrap a vase with sloping or splayed edges, but the paper will wrap in a shape more like a man's old fashioned neck-collar rather than a straight strip.

Top tips:
  • Match the paper to the flowers, or the colour-scheme of your decorations / tableware.
  • Experiment with placing different paper at different heights, and different widths and patterns.
  • Use decorative embellishments such as stickers, gems or fabric flowers to complete.
  • Cluster the vases for extra effect.
  • Consider making a vase-cuff out of fabric, using ribbons or buttons to hold it in place.
Merry almost-Christmas everyone... and don't forget there's plenty of other Christmas ideas to make in a hurry over at Partycraft Secrets' website! Linda.
