Tips to Create Vases

Updated:2014-04-11 14:02:56
For over 25,000 years, humans have been creating vases and other pottery. The pottery held food items, water and objects. Like those ancient potters, you can make vases with items in your environment, such as paper and a tin can, and techniques you already know, like paper mache. The vessel will hold water. Plus, you will reuse products that might have ended up in a landfill to make a one-of-a-kind --- unless you decide to duplicate it -- vase.

Instructions as follows:



Firstly, prepare your workspace by clearing at least a 3-by-3-foot space on a flat surface and gathering paint, brushes and paper. Keep the container, water, glue, decorations and a brush out of your work area for efficiency. For the paper, you can use computer paper, tissue paper, tablet paper and even newspaper. Avoid newspapers with bold, black ink as it might appear through the paint.
Secondly, paint the paper any color. You can create a mosaic pattern or use blotches of plant. Let the paint dry for about an hour, though the time varies by type of paint and paper
Thirdly, Tear strips of paper about 3-by-1-inches long. Create a large pile to make assembling the vase easier.
Fourthly, clear your workspace of the paint and extra brushes. Gather the glue, water, bowl and container. The container can be just about anything. For example, you can use a tin can, jars, glass or plastic bottle.
Fifthly, roughen the surface of any glass or plastic bottle with a scouring pad to give the glue a better surface to adhere to.
