How are you doing today? I’m back at work after a LONG weekend and am not liking it. I want to be home creating! I just need to figure out a way to make my hobby my life, and pay the bills. Oh I can dream!
Summer is such a busy time, but sometimes when I have time to sit and look around I notice things I want to freshen up. You know, those areas of your home where you think needs a little something added to it. I do this all the time. I put together a picture wall, furniture arrangement, or décor grouping and live with it for awhile. There are occasions where that “live with it for awhile” turns into a year. There just gets to be too many items on the to-do list, and I forget. I know you’ve traveled down this overwhelming road with me before. Sometimes I want to change up the whole thing instead of tweaking a little something. Oh the crazy mind full of too many ideas that I have.
Today I want to share a quick vase update you can do. What’s great about this idea is that you could use twine, ribbon, and even paint to get the same effect. I had this plain white vase I purchased from Target a few years ago. I like the plain white, but when I put in the cotton stems it needed something else.
So here is this simple fix that I did with some twine I had lying around. I hot glued one end of the twine to the top of the vase and then just began wrapping. I wrapped over where I glued it in the back.
Wrap as far as you like, then hot glue the end and tuck it in. I love the texture it adds.
It adds a little visual interest with a white vase against a white wall. I like how it looks, and how the twine works with the cotton.
Do you have any vases around your home that need a little something extra? There is so many possibilities using ribbon, trim, twine, paint (lines or patterns), even washi tape. The possibilities are endless.
