DIY Glitter Vase

Glitter vases

I know I said this is a glitter vase, and people typically put flowers in vases, but I happen to like candles more. This will work for whichever you prefer. I like this one a lot because it was really easy and, of course, cheap. I made these 3 glitter vases from materials from the Dollar Store for about $6. Altogether, not each. That’s my kind of DIY project!

Things You Will Need:
Glitter Washi tape

*I got two different sizes of tape: one was about 2″ wide, while the other two were about 1/2″ wide.

*Don’t forget to put down newspaper before you get started. The tape I used wasn’t sealed, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be cleaning up glitter for the rest of my life. You should see my table and the floor below. Fair warning.

Step 1:
Pick a vase and wrap your first strip of 1/2″ Washi tape around the bottom of it.

Tip: If you’re worried about getting the tape straight, wrap a rubber band around the vase to get a straight line. Then, you can position the tape below the rubber band.

Step 2:
Wrap another piece of your 1/2″ glitter Washi tape around the top of the vase.

Step 3:
Repeat, but wrap the 2″ glitter tape around the middle. Then, a contrasting color of the 1/2″ tape in the middle of the tape you just applied.

Repeat the process for the other two vases and you should have a cute little set like in the image above.

If you’re using candles, light em up! They look so pretty!

There is something about glitter and candles that makes me happy 🙂

If you can find bigger pillar candles, that might look cute too. Do you think adding glitter to the candles would be too much? I considered that.

Happy crafting!!
