Embellish bowls and vases with lace
This technique has become very popular recently, and rightly so. Because this creates magical creations that captivate with filigree ornaments. Vases, bowls or candlesticks – anything is possible with lace and clay. You can use crochet doilies for the beautiful motifs, which you will surely have in your closet from Grandma. In addition to clay, air-drying modeling clay (cold porcelain) is also very suitable.
So every piece becomes a real masterpiece
Simple step-by-step instructions
Great upcycling idea for vases made from glass bottles
Crafts with glass bottles or glasses is another great thing that you should also take advantage of when decorating the table yourself. For this simple upcycling idea, you actually need a few empty, transparent and clean glass bottles and acrylic paints of your choice, and you're good to go.
Shake a little bit of each color into each bottle and turn it several times until the color covers the entire inside of the bottle. Then let the bottles dry, neck down, on a wire rack. Then the DIY colorful vases are absolutely ready for use.
