Vintage Inspired Bud Vases


With my friend Izzy’s wedding shower, I had the opportunity to make all sorts of vintage inspired decorations for it.  It was a lot of fun and here’s how I took some plain jane bud vases from my wedding and changed them up to add a vintage feel for Izzy’s wedding shower.

  • Mod Podge
  • Bud vases
  • burlap
  • ribbon/fabric
  • sewing pattern
  • scissors
Game Plan:

1. Cover the outside of a bud vase with Mod Podge.

2.  Wrap the bud vase with an old sewing pattern.  Let dry.

You could also use sheet music or newspaper but I prefer sewing patterns for this project so the light can shine through the translucent paper.

3.  Cut a piece of burlap to wrap around the bud vase.
