Mod Podged Vase for Fall

This week’s CSI Project theme is “Mod Podge.”  I love Mod Podge!  I glammed up a plastic, throw away urn from a church basement into a cute vase for fall.

This urn most likely originally held funeral flowers.

The materials list for this project is short and sweet:  urn, scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, and scissors.
Cut the scrapbook paper into small squares and apply to the vase using Mod Podge. 
I made sure to smooth each paper down with my finger as I applied it to keep bubbles from forming under the paper.  I started at the top and worked my way down, alternating paper colors to create a pleasing pattern.  After drying overnight, my glammed up urn was ready for flowers.

I love the look of my new urn and plan to use it all fall for decorating.

  1. I really like what you did with the vase! Cute papers and I especially like the arrangement. Maybe you could do a flower arrangement post one day 🙂

    Oh Paula Sweetie…
    Now how cute is that? Does it say Fall or what? Who would have thought you could take that plain old white plastic vase and turn it into something so Darn Stinkin Cute? I LOVE it.

    Thank you so much for sharing the idea. I recently bought some Modge Podge that has glitter in it. It could make one really pretty for Christmas like this.

    Again, thank you for sharing. It looks so beautiful with the flowers you selected and sitting in your living room. DDG.

    Country hugs sweetie…Sherry

    Hey Paula!
    Glad you liked my armoire…it really did get saved from the trash..cause I was about to toss it out! lol
    Lovin’ your vase..another one destined for the trash. Don’t ya just love re-purposing things instead of throwing them away!

  13. My Cottage Charm says:

    by the way…I meant destined for the trash BEFORE you got hold of it! lol 🙂 I think it’s just lovely now!

  14. Thanks for stopping by.

    You are all about fall, arent’t you? I am not quite on the ball yet, but I’ll get there. 🙂 I love this vase and I really love the possibilities that Modge Podge presents. We could create any look!

  15. Hi found you from Serenity Now’s blog roll and so glad I did. I’ve NEVER modpodged before. I know where have I been. I love the way this vase came out. I have a little birdhouse for my daughter’s room. We’ve built it, we’ve spray painted it pink. But now I need to decorate it. I’m thinking a combo of hand painted elements and modpodge should so the trick…now if I just can get the courage to take the plunge:-) I guess we can always spray paint again as needed!

  16. Wonderful! I dont know if I would have patience to lay on each square…but it sure looks gorgeous. Good for you!

    Have a great weekend.

  17. Great idea, turned out beautiful!

  18. LuckyStarErin says:

    awesome! this caught my eye at the Creative Chick Parade!

  19. I love this! I was admiring it before you told how you made it!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉


  1. […] something new.  That’s exactly what I did for my dining room table.  I started by filling the Mod Podged Fall Vase that I made back in 2010 with dried Hydrangeas from my […]
