INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Clean the vases with rubbing alcohol and let dry completely.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Peach Silk to paint all three jars completely on the outside. Rinse brush.
    Step 1 Example
  3. While the jars drying, cut all ribbon, lace, and/or burlap to fit the jars.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use craft glue to adhere the ribbon to the jar. Repeat with lace on top of two of the ribboned jars. On the third jar, adhere the burlap ribbon on top. (See photo.) Let dry completely.
    Step 3 Example
  5. While ribbons are drying, get embellishments ready. (I ripped three flowers out of a bouquet of silk flowers.) Use craft glue to adhere embellishment to the center of each jar.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Once the jars are fully cured, they are ready to display almost anywhere at a wedding.
    Step 5 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

I used dimensional glass vases because when they are painted, they look very vintage.
