Decoupage Vintage Vase ~ At the beginning of the week I showed you the BRAND NEW Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Crafting Line and now it’s time to show you what I made. I had a very plain looking vase laying around and decided to give it a nice vintage feel. It was quite simple to do since I had all the necessary products on hand.
Decoupage Vintage Vase
– Decoupage Paper Cutouts – Botanical Floral by Martha Stewart Crafts
– Multi-Surface Durable Gloss Finish by Martha Stewart Crafts
– Multi-Surface Durable Matte Finish by Martha Stewart Crafts
– Decoupage Brush by Martha Stewart Crafts
– Craft Squeegee by Martha Stewart Crafts
Step 1: Select the paper cutout that you would like to apply unto the vase. Step 2: Apply a coat of Multi-Surface Durable Gloss Finish onto the surface of the vase. (I used Gloss because the vase had a shiny finish and I didn’t want to make the surface look dull with the matte finish). Step 3: Apply a coat of the Multi-Surface Durable Gloss Finish onto the back of the paper cutout. Step 4: Place the paper cutout onto the vase and use your fingers or a craft squeegee to remove any air pockets between the paper cutout and the vase. Allow it to dry for 1-2 hours. Step 5: Apply a coat of Multi-Surface Durable Matte Finish over of the paper cutout, leaving a 1/4 inch border to seal the edges of the paper. (I used Matte because the paper cutout was matte and I liked the look of the matte over the gloss.). Allow it to dry for 1-2 hours. Step 6: Repeat Step 5.
And voilà, you have yourself a Decoupage Vintage Vase!
Isn’t it FABULOUS? I seriously LOVE IT! I’m hoping to find a few more vases in the similar beige tone so that I can decoupage them with the other designs found in the Botanical Floral decoupage set.
Hope you are having a BEAUTIFUL day!
P.S. I’ll be linking to these Parties.
