Place it on a shelf, or in a small tray with seashells. It’ll look stunning!

Prep the Vase

It’s a good idea to wash the vase first. This way you can get any grime or greasy fingerprints off the vase before you begin.

Attach the Rope

Begin by applying a strip of hot glue along the bottom rim-side of the vase and attach the rope with the glue.

Be careful because the glue tends to dry quickly on the glass, use short strips, maybe 1/4 of the way around the vase at a time.

Continue Attaching Rope

Working your way around the vase, continue with the hot glue and rope.

When the rope ends, simply begin with the new rope right where you left off.

Continuing to hot glue rope further around the vase

Keep going until you’ve reached the top of the vase.

Snip the excess rope after wrapping completely to the top.

Fit Floral Foam

Trim the floral foam to fit into the bottom of the vase.

Otherwise, you can use real flowers and fill the vase with the appropriate amount of water.

Add Flowers
