How to Decorate a Vase with Hot Glue – Fun & Simple Crafts

Ready for a super quick craft? Ok.. all you need is a glass vase/jar/cup/wine bottle, a hot glue gun and a can of spray paint. Ready set GO!

Well it might actually take you a few minutes to decide what pattern you will make on the vase with the glue, that is the only difficult part of this tutorial. I had a left over glass vase from the Dollar store and couldn’t quite decide what to do with it. Here is a simple fix. These would also we great gift, as they can be easily personalized and only cost you a few dollars.
Enjoy!!! Thanks for stopping by!

Basic run through:

  • Clean your vase.
  • If desired draw on the vase, a simple pattern or words work best. I just free gunned it.
  • Set your glue gun on medium or low and have plenty of back up sticks.
  • Slowly follow you pattern. Don’t worry if you mess up, when the hot glue dries you can simply peel it off (yeaaaaa!!!)
  • Let the glue set
  • Take outside to a ventilated area and apply two to three coats on the outside of the vase with spray paint. I used metallic paint and let it dry about 5 minutes between each coat to avoid drips.
  • Let the paint set for a few hours
  • Set upon a shelf to admire or gather a handful of flowers and give to your mother or do whatever you like with it 🙂

Now go have fun and paint something! Just remember to save all those old spaghetti sauce jars and wine bottles!
