  • 2. Intro
    • Have you ever wondered what to do with all those glass vases you have left over after someone brings you flowers?
    • Here’s a fun, easy idea for transforming that plain, glass vase into a beautiful work of art that will make your table look special!
    • The most common question about this projects is where to get the specialty art papers. At the end of this ebook, there is a list of resources.
    • Send me photos of you work! I will put them on my website. Here’s your chance to share your creations with the world!
    • Questions? Email me at [email_address] , or contact me through my website, www.LoriKreinStudios.com
  • 3. Supplies and Prep
    • You will need:
      • Decorative art papers (mango leaf and banana leaf work well for these)
      • Glass vase (any size or shape!)
      • One inch, flat paint brush works best, scissors
      • Acrylic matte medium mixed with water (3/4 medium, ¼ water)
      • Paper towels, small container of water, rag or old towel
    • To prepare for this project, cover a table with newspaper or an old tablecloth. Freezer paper taped to a cookie sheet works well.
    • Wear an apron or old clothing.

  • 4. Cylinder Vase
    • If you are covering a cylinder-shaped vase…
    • Lay your paper on the table.
    • Lay the vase onto the paper, sideways.
    • Cut the paper approx. 1” large than the vase (top to bottom)
    • Roll the vase across the paper to determine how much you will need to cover the vase.
    • “ Draw” a line, with water, along the paper where you want to tear it.
    • Remove the vase, and tear the paper so that you have a square or rectangle that will cover the vase.
    • Spread matte medium across the paper.
    • Begin rolling the paper onto the vase, smoothing it down as you go.
    • When you have covered the vase, fold the paper onto the bottom of the vase.
    • Then, wrap the paper down over the rim on the top.
    • Be sure to press along the paper as you go, to remove all air bubbles.
    • Place the vase on a surface upside down to allow to dry.
    • When dry, coat with two layers of water-based poly urethane. Allow to dry between coats.
    You can find lots of decorative art papers on the internet. Some companies offer a sample book of the papers they sell. This will make it much easier for you to determine the texture of the various papers available.
  • 5. Curved Vase
    • If you are covering a curved vase…
    • Tear the paper into small pieces, approx. 2” square or odd shaped.
    • Spread the matte medium on the pieces of paper, and begin sticking them onto the vase.
    • Overlap the papers. If you’ve torn the paper, the edges ahould blend nicely.
    • Continue gluing paper onto the vase until every surface is covered, making sure you smooth down every piece to remove all the air bubbles.
    • Place the vase on a surface upside down to allow to dry.
    • When dry, coat with two layers of water-based poly urethane. Allow to dry between coats.
