Today I am showing you five easy DIY’s that will elevate those boring glass vases we all collect over time. I’ve taken five vases and created five different looks that are incredibly easy to DIY.
Let’s get started!

Scandinavian Style Vase
You will need:
Saw to trim dowels to size
Step 1- Cut your dowels to the length of your vase.
Step 2- Glue dowels all the way around the vase. This is why I like a dual control hot glue gun. I use the lower temp to prevent burning my fingerprints off.
Step 3- Remove any Hot Glue strings that may be hanging.
Step 4- Add flowers, enjoy.
Tip- Keep your dowels as straight as you can as you go, or they will slant, and the last piece won’t fit. All of the options I am showing today will need to be hand-washed, not a big deal for me, just letting you know.
Coastal Style Vase:
You will need:
Step 1- Wrap the Vase with rope to determine how much you will need to cover it.
Step 2- Begin at the bottom of the vase, gluing your way around and up. As you go along, make sure the rope is snug without being tight. This will prevent the glass from showing through.
Step 3- Cover both ends of the rope with hot glue, so they do not unravel.
Step 4- Use your scissors to trim off and tidy up any excess rope.
Step 4- Add flowers and stand back and enjoy!
Tip: The vases I am using are from the Dollar Store and cost $1.00 each. They are leftover from my oldest daughter’s wedding we hosted in our backyard. If you’d like, you can see that here.
On to number three
Boho Style Vase
You will need:
Step I- Wrap the cording around the vase
Step 2- Tie two knots in the cording
Step 3- Glue in place!
Tip: I played with the cording to get it right where I wanted it and I glued the knots in place so they won’t come undone.
I told you these were easy! But even more importantly, they look high-end.
On to the easiest hack yet. I once did this for bridal shower centerpieces and then gave them as thank you gifts for the guests, and they were a huge hit, plus it was so simple!
Glam Chic Style Vase
What you need:
Step 1- I just put the stickers on in a pattern. I was not careful to make the perfect.
Step 2- Insert flowers, and admire!
Tip: The stickers I used are very sticky so if you put one where you don’t want it you may have to use glue goo to remove it.
Below is an example of the dowel vase painted a rosy gold for a more glam inspired feel.
And My Personal Favorite:
Nature Inspired Moss Vase
What you Need:
Step 1- Pull your moss out and separate it.
Step 2- Start gluing the moss onto the vase.
Step 3- Fill in any spaces.
Step 4- Trim the moss to tidy it up.
Step 5- Add beautiful flowers!
Tip: I rolled the vase to flatten it a bit when the glue was dry.
I hope I’ve inspired you to do something with all those glass vases you have been collecting!
Until next time,
