Hello everyone. I finally got in the crafty spirit! I love ripping fabric into strips. I'm not sure why I find this so fun and inspiring. In the past I ripped fabric strips and wrapped them around a hanger for a little boy. Now I'm going to make some for grown ups!
This project is for a vase. This was such a simple and fun project. I hope you give it a try!
The supplies you'll need: fabric, Aleene's tacky glue, vase (or even a jar), scissors. I ended up not using the sealer.
I love the batik fabrics.
Start ripping the fabric into strips that are approximately 3/4 inch wide. Pull off the stray threads.
Isn't this a pile of goodness! Now you start the process of gluing the strips onto the glass. I put down a layer of newspaper to protect my table.
You may be able to see that I overlapped the strips by just a tiny bit. I love how the light shows through the fabric. When the fabric made it's way around the glass I cut it and glued down the ends.
Continue wrapping the fabric until you come to the end of your glass. This vase had a little lip on it and I didn't try to cover it.
The finished project. This was so simple and fun! This one was a gift for a friend of mine. They would also make wonderful Mother's Day gifts!
Yep, I'm going to make one for myself. I bought a fat quarter and I think I'll have enough to make two of the vases. The vase is just over seven inches tall and 3 1/2 inches wide.
I didn't realize how well the colors in the fabric matched my lazy susan until I took this photo.
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
