So we originally tackled these babies way back when (you can see the original post here), but they were such a huge hit that we thought we’d attempt round two. We’ve updated them slightly, with a few extra tips and tricks so that you can really shine as a do it yourselfer.
Glass vase (we got ours at Michael’s)
25′ cotton clothes line (available at Home Depot)
Hot glue gun
Hot glue sticks
Liquid gold gilding
Put small amount of hot glue on one end of your rope and press firmly at the bottom of the vase. Wrap the rope around the vase, and when you reach the opposite side, place a small dab of glue on the vase. Keep wrapping and when you reach the beginning, put another dab of glue on top of the rope and against the glass and press the rope in.
Use the paintbrush & gilding to trace a thicker line inside the diamonds on the edges of the vase. Then paint a smaller filled diamond shape inside the center diamonds. Let dry, then fill with your favorite blooms!
