Yarn-Wrapped Vase Makeover

I've got the home decor bug lately. I wrote up a list of all the little things I want to do to spruce up the house, and it was two pages long! I tend to get obsessed and then overwhelmed, so today I'm starting off with something small. I got this vase a few weeks ago out of a dumpster from an undisclosed location, and decided to give it a little face lift.

I grabbed some yellow and grey yarn and my trusty glue gun and went to town. I just started at the bottom, made a line of hot glue, squished the yarn into it and kept repeating until I got to the top (with a few color changes along the way). Easy as can be! It took me less than an hour, and look how cute it turned out:

Now I have a fun little vase that will brighten up any space, just in time for spring flowers. This would be a great gift for Mother's Day, too.


  1. Cute vase :) this would make a lovely housewarming gift too! And a great way of using up leftover yarn stash!
