Valentine Heart Vases
  • Glass vase or container
  • ModPodge
  • Sponge brush
  • White tissue paper
  • Colored/patterned tissue paper
  • Scissors
  1. To start, use your scissors to cut the tissue paper. Cut the white tissue paper into squares about 1 inch in size. They do not need to be even/perfect! Then, cut the colored/patterned tissue paper into heart shapes of various sizes.
  2. Dip the sponge brush into the ModPodge and paint a small area of the glass vase/container. Carefully place a white tissue square over the ModPodge. You can paint an additional layer of ModPodge on top to keep the tissue paper in place. Repeat this process until you have covered the entire outside of the vase with the white tissue paper squares. I recommend adding two layers of tissue paper to create a solid look on the vase. Allow the vase to dry for 10-15 minutes before starting the next step.
  3. When the vase has had time to dry, it is time to add the heart shaped tissue. Using the same technique as you did with the white squares, attach the hearts in a pattern you desire. Allow this layer to dry for 10 minutes.
  4. Finally, paint a final layer of ModPodge on top of the completed vase to seal the entire piece. Allow the vase to dry overnight before displaying. Fill with flowers, candy, or whatever you desire - enjoy it!
