This decoration can make simple vases look a little bit retro. To make the flower decorations, you need self-drying modeling clay, paint, brushes, glue, glue gun, vase, and knife. Use your favorite flower and use the clay to make it. Start by making the petals and then move to make the single inner petal. Prop your flowers against the glass and leave them overnight to dry. After that, you can paint the flower in any color you want and then leave it again to dry. When the colors are all dried, put on some glue in the back and hold the flower on the vase to glue it better.

2. Nautical Rope Vase



Who would thought that a regular rope could turn out to be such a great vase decoration? You will love this project because it is certainly one of the budget – friendliest, and it will take you about five minutes to make it. It’s great if you need any new home decor ASAP. Besides the rope and a vase, you need a glue gun, glue sticks, and a heavy clip. Glue the inside of the rope and move it around the vase. When you get to the top, hold the rope with a heavy clip to make it more secure and then cut it off. Next step? Place some pretty flowers inside and enjoy your own project.
