A couple of months ago, I decided to sew some sequins on one of my t-shirts. I went so far as to buy sequins, but… I never quite got around to it. So, when I saw a tutorial for a sequin vase from it all started with paint, I knew I had to give it a try. It’s much more up my alley anyways, (read five minute project instead of several hours of hand sewing). It’s just as easy as she promises, and I love the sparkly colors.

What you need:

1. Mason jar

2. Sequins – I used 1 package of smaller sequins and 1 package of regular size.

3. Modge Podge crafting glue with a brush

What to do:

Brush a thin layer of glue over the inside of the mason jar.

Sprinkle in the sequins and shake around until the sides are coated.

Let dry overnight, then fill with water and arrange your flowers.

Word of warning: definitely wait the full 24 hours. I got carried away and filled my vase too soon before the glue was fully dry – should’ve waited, I had to re-dry it!

In the original project, she uses the beautiful blue mason jars. I’ve never seen those before, and I love the new color. They look vintage and would be perfect for all kinds of projects. What I loved most about this project was the absolute simplicity. I think that these would make great candle holders as well. The smaller sizes of mason jars would be perfect for tea-lights and would be easier to fill with flowers without breaking the bank!
