DIY Scrapbook Jeweled VASES

Here are some very easy and extremely cute DIY decorative vases. ENJOY!!


Here are the materials that you will need:

A Tall Cylinder Vase**Scrapbook Paper**Colored Floral Jewels(Stones)

**Floral Stems**Dried Natural Stems




1.) Put the Jewels in the bottom of the Vase







3.) Trim Scrapbook paper to size. I trimmed it to rest right above the jewels





4.) Place in Vase and let it expand to fit in the vase

I didn't attach the paper because I would like to be able to change the paper out every now and then

****Maybe with the changing Holidays or Seasons****




5.) Put the flowers in the vase

**You may have to trim them down**




6.) Place on windowsill, bookcase, dresser, etc.....
These were the finished look, however I felt like they needed a little something more...




7.) So....

I added some bright RED dried natural stems and it is PERFECT!!

I LOVE THEM!!!




I made all 3 of these for $19.00

I had to make them this.very.instant or I could have gotten these vases at Goodwill for .99 each...ugh...

Vases: $2.00 each
Jewels: $4.00 for 2 bags

Orchids: $4.50 for 3 (1/2 off at hobby lobby)

Dried Natural Stems: $4.00 (1/2 off hobby lobby)

What a wonderful idea! This would be so easily to do seasonally, which is a great cost-effective solution for those of us who don't have an unlimited decorating budget! :) Thanks so much for sharing!

What a brilliant project! (Do you have Dollar Tree stores near you? they sell those vases for a buck apiece.)

Lovely idea - I like how they are changeable, also ... great for the holidays!
