Creative Vase / January 24, 2019 / Heidi Rivera.
Fist, you must have an idea already at the back of your mind on the design and appearance of your vase. Decide for a color scheme that you would want to start on. After choosing a color, you can now start to pour the sand on the glass vases. To avoid messing the place, you can use a funnel for easy transfer and pouring of the sand materials to the vase. In case you want to achieve a creative and unique design, you can also try to one color of sand by sections, pouring one color of sand after the other. For added beauty, you can also drop random things in to the vase like small stones, pebbles, cute little shells and other small objects that you would want to place in the vase. After pouring down the sand, you can now close the top of the vase. In doing such you might have to use a sealant for this step. For a more embellishing effect, you can also add colored sands to the sealant to give it a cute finish. You can also adorn it with little shells and stones for added effect. After sealing the top, you can now be proud of what you have done. In just a few simple steps, you have already come up with a beautiful sand art glass vase that you can use as a decoration at home or even as a gift for someone dear to you.
The newspaper is used simply to catch any stray sand that may fall off the plate that your kids are supposed to be holding over, and trust me, there will be stray sand. The newspapers just make it easier to clean up later when the kids are done. I use the plastic cups to hold the glue, which also makes for easy cleanup as well. You will also want to dilute the glue with about a teaspoon of water for every 14 cup of glue you use. This helps to make a thin and even coating whenever the kids are applying it onto the jars.
These tall glass vases can be purchased in the nearest shopping outlet in your neighborhood or to make things more convenient, you can just sit right in front of your computer and do some thorough online shopping.
Tip number one is to think outside the vase. The vast majority of wedding centerpieces are arranged in simple clear glass vases, so if you want to set your designs apart, the first step is to ditch the vases. What else can you use to hold your flowers? Almost anything! Flowers can go in birdcages or terrariums, wooden boxes, vintage tea tins, pitchers, tea cups, or watering cans. A big trend these days is to create centerpieces that do not use a vessel at all. Arrange the flowers in moss or floral oasis foam set directly on the table top or hang blossoms above the tables on clear string. The effect will be unique and eye-catching.
