Your Wedding DIY Decor: Glitter and Glam Vases

This D.I.Y. project can be completed in a single afternoon, and could be used to make glittery vase centerpieces that add a sparkle to your reception party! The concept is very simple, and I will walk you through the steps. Once you know the basics, you might decide to add a little bit of your own fun twist! Let's start with the basics.

Step One: Gather Your Supplies

For this project, you can use clear glass vases of any shape or size. The number of vases that you gather up is up to you! In addition you will need Mod Podge, a disposable container, a foam brush, painter's tape, a drop cloth or throw-away paper, and a single color of glitter.

Step Two: Prep And Mod Podge The Vases

Clean and dry each vase. Put a line of painter's tape on the place of your vase where you want the edge of the glitter to be. Next, paint on a thick layer of Mod Podge, using your foam brush. Only paint up to your tape line, and leave the bottom glue-free as well.

Step Three: Add The Glitter

Next, sprinkle the glitter on over the wet glue. Keep on sprinkling the surfaces until no more glitter will stick on. You want the glue to be saturated with glitter!

Step Four: Cover It Up

Once this dries, you will coat the glittery area of your vase with another layer of Mod Podge. This time add some water to the Mod Podge so that it is thinner. This coating will keep the glitter from falling off over the course of your event, or while transporting your pretty vases.

Now that you know the basics, here are a few variations that you could try:

You can put the glitter on the top of your vase rather than the bottom, create stripes with your glue and glitter, or add rhinestones to the final product. I think this D.I.Y. project is a gem, because it so simple and quick, and creates such a pretty end result. Do you like this D.I.Y. wedding idea? Let me know in the comments section below!
