Make Something Monday - Vintage Vase Edition

Today we are going to inspire you to make a new vase from something you already have. I am sure that you received flowers or have an old vase that can use a little updating. The vase that we created in the picture was a square vase and we used a thick velvet patterned paper. We wanted to achieve a vintage elegant look so we added velvet ribbon and some vintage looking broaches.

1 clear vase
Decorative craft paper
Hot glue gun
double sided tape
old broach/pin or applique

1. Take your decorative paper and wrap it around your vase
2. Cut to fit your vase but leave a little more at the top to over lap a little bit.
3. Use double sided tape to secure the paper to the vase make sure that you used enough tape to make this paper secure. The double sided tape is pretty strong to make sure that you have the paper on correctly.
4. Once paper is secure to vase decorate with ribbon and broach as desired

The great thing about creating this vase is that you can just rip the paper off and start all over with another look that does not cost more then $5.00 to $10.00. You can us date this vase for the holidays or just have it match the decor in each room.

Fashion Friday - Spring and Summer Edition

Today we did a dress for the spring and summer bridesmaid. We love this one shoulder hot pink chiffon dress. We think it is elegant and sasy dress. On the one shoulder strap it has an embellishment with hand made-flower Ruffles which adds something special. We really love the pop of color of the dress and for the price you cannot go wrong. Also comes in other great colors to match your wedding theme. Enjoy!
