DIY Shower: Tape Vases


Thursday, February 3, 2011


Another favorite of mine! Ashley Ann Photography and her blog Under the Sycamore. She has the most beautiful photography, some great finds and more than a dozen DIY projects. For Ashley's Tape Vases tutorial, all you need is an empty bottle, some colored masking tape and fancy ribbon. I wasn't sure where you would get colored masking tape, but luckily found some at my local office supply store. You can also order some online for super CHEAP. Fantastic for a baby shower table setting!

From Ashley Ann... When I said these would be simple FAST projects I wasn’t kidding! I don’t drink my coffee black, I girlie it up with cream & syrups. The syrups always come in great bottles…perfect for bud vases. Here is a quick craft for keeping glass out of the trash and cutely displayed instead! I am almost embarrassed to actually post this because it is so simple, but hey this one is for the moms that have about 4 minutes to craft…

Materials:
Bottle
Colored Masking Tape
Scrapbooking Paper
Double-sided Tape
Ribbon
Flowers

Step-by-Step Instructions:
1. Get your bottle
2. Clean your bottle
3. Wrap several layers of masking tape around it, trim tape with an exacto knife
4. Add a band of scrapbooking paper, use double sided tape on one end to hold it together
5. Add another layer of tape to keep the paper secure
6. Add some cute ribbon trim. I used a paper trim and held it in place with double sided tape
7. Add a thinner piece of trim and tie in a knot
8. Find some pretty flowers

And you have one cutely re-purposed syrup bottle… and one that matches my blog background
