Revamped With Paper Beads Vase

Posted on Mar 25, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

When I was going through my collections of old magazine for a collage project, I came across Martha Stewart article on how to make carnations with muffin cup liners and you can find the instructions here.  I normally take pictures outside, so I set up a makeshift work area in the family room where it is easy for me to just go outside.  I thought that the paper flowers will liven up my work area.  I used one of those vases that comes when order flowers but it looked like it needed something.  So, step two is dressing up the otherwise boring vase by decoupaging it with tissue paper and painting it with water color and acrylic paint.  If you have been here a few times you know that I will paper bead almost anything.
