Graphic Bud Vases

Graphic Bud Vases Beauty Shot

Is there anything better than black and white (or "Coconut"!) with a little splash or color thrown in? I think not. These graphic bud vases are simply paper, all designed-up with stenciled Gelatos designs, and taped to a glass votive making it really easy to dress-up your table top for a dinner party.

Instructions to make a graphic bud vase:

  1. Cut black paper into strips that are sized to wrap around a small glass votive holder. Graphic Bud Vases How To
  2. Lay a Mixed Media Stencil onto the paper, hold in place, and color over the stencil with Gelatos®. I used the Color of the Week, Coconut, as my main color and then added a burst of color with Passion Fruit.
  3. Lift the stencil carefully off the paper.
  4. Wrap the paper around the glass votive and tape in place. Fill the votive with water and place small cuttings of flowers into it.
