I've lumped together a couple of similar ideas here because you need much the same materials. I like these because you can use recycled or natural materials which are inexpensive. You also don't need many skills to be able to do these and it's relatively quick.
For this first idea you'll need:-
- a vase (straight ones are easiest)
- glue that will stick on glass
- strings of beads (these could be old jewelry you have lying around) or you could string beads yourself
All you need to do is attach them to the vase using the glue and hey presto!
For this idea you need all of the above except the beads, but some gorgeous handmade paper. You simply measure the circumference of your vase and cut your paper. Put glue all over the paper, evenly and don't miss any areas and then attach to the glass ensuring there are no air bubbles by smoothing it out with your hands. Et voila!
2 very inexpensive gift ideas I'm sure you'll agree. Now who would not be happy receiving one of these! :-)
