A good vase can decorate the interior of almost any room, and if it is made by you, then its value increases significantly. Now we will tell you how to make a vase with your own hands and give several ways to make an original vase: table and even floor.
How to make a vase from a bottle?
For this we need a bottle of any shape, according to your taste, old beads or beads and an inexpensive thin nylon ribbon or a skein of strong thread. Beads and beads can be completely different both in size and in texture - it will still be very original and beautiful. After we have collected all the materials, we proceed to work. First we string on a ribbon or thread beads or beads. You can do this in any order, and if you want, you can follow a certain sequence, for example: yellow, blue, white, green or two red, one white, two blue, three purple - in a word, there can be any order.
After we have strung enough beads, take one end of the thread or ribbon and glue it to the bottom of the bottle. When the glue grabs, we begin to wrap the thread around the bottle with the obligatory fixation using the same glue.Do not cut the thread until you wrap the entire area of the bottle. As soon as you finish the winding, if there are not enough beads, add more, if the thread or ribbon is too long, cut off the extra piece. Now glue the other end and hide it under the beads. By the way, in order to make such a vase, it is not at all necessary to use a bottle — an old vase and a tall glass are quite suitable: there are many objects from which a vase can be made. And most importantly - you really get a unique product, in fact - a work of art.
Another way to make a vase
And now let's try a more complicated option - making a vase, which according to your desire will change its appearance. At first it seems that this is impossible, but nothing is impossible here. As a material, take some old vase that has long been gathering dust in a closet, on the mezzanine, or in the attic. We also need a fabric that would match in color to the interior of the room - especially the wallpaper and curtains. Now we cut out a piece of any shape from this fabric - according to your desire.The main thing is that the fabric covers the surface of your vase. If you wish, you can make a small fringe.
We wrap the fabric around the vase, glue it on top and bottom - here you can use not only glue, but also adhesive tape, and start decorating. Here is where you can roam the fantasy. Decorate a vase with beads or colorful ribbons. For example, you can take several ribbons of the same or different colors, or you can sew them to beads. However, in the latter case, it is better to first prepare the fabric appropriately, that is, to mark on it the places on which to sew beads or beads, and only then put on a fabric with sewn decorations on the vase. And, of course, no one bothers you to do whatever you want with a cloth. For example, in winter you can fix snowflakes on it, and in summer beautiful decorative butterflies or, for example, vegetables with fruits.
How to make a vase with their own hands?
And let's imagine another option, how you can make a vase yourself. Let's try to make an unusual floor vase - square. For this fit a strong cardboard box of suitable shape. First, cover the box with a pre-prepared acrylic primer to ensure good adhesion of subsequent layers.Then we take pieces of old paper, newspapers and other waste paper, grind it and fill it with hot water. As soon as the paper softens, we squeeze and add the PVA glue to this mass. So we got papier-mâché, with which we cover the box. After this comes the turn of the paint - first water-based, which will have the function of a primer, and then an aerosol: one or several times.
Here you can do differently: someone quite monotonous color, but someone wants something more original. In this case, take a contrasting paint and apply it with a sponge on the main color using the so-called pro-blotting or sponging method. You can even try to put some drawing, or create an abstract (read - random form). And the last stage: as soon as the paint dries, treat the vase with varnish so that it serves you as long as possible. As for the manufacture of a round floor vase, the technology is about the same, only as a basis you need to take not a box, but, say, a plastic bucket or bottle. If some moments you do not understand, on the Internet you can find a lot of videos on how to make a vase with your own hands.
