Getting Lippy: A Simple DIY Vase

Decoupage Lip Vase

Hey guys, cialis sale sales remember decoupage? This one goes out to you long-term crafters who were swept up in the ole Modge Podge craze of ’99. Man, discount viagra decoupage was the rage! And I was feeling a little nostalgic for it this week. Unfortunately for my collage abilities, I’m not an avid magazine subscriber. So I hit up my local MCC thrift shop. The sweet elderly clerk thought I was buying 5 year-old trashy magazines to get caught up on my hot celebrity gossip. I quickly defended myself by saying I was using them for a collage…hmm…then I had a flashback of my 13 year old self pasting celebrity cut-outs onto my school binder. But don’t worry – there is no Lance Bass in the making of this craft. NOT that I was into him…no offense, Lance.

So how do we make decoupage current, you may ask? Just inject a bit of quirk, a dash of pattern and a lot of lips.

You Will Need:

-Glass Vase


-Rubbing Alcohol

-Modge Podge

-Acrylic Paint


1. Read all of your hot celebrity gossip…the trashier the magazine, the better. Also, we want lots of make-up ads, people. They’re the best for brightly coloured lipstick kissers. I tried to refrain from the overtly sexy lips…but it’s up to you! Anyway, find ’em puckers and cut ’em out.

2. Wash glass vase with warm soapy water. Dry it and wipe the inside with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any grease marks.

3. Apply Modge Podge to the front of the lips and paste them on the inside of your vase. Seal the lip cutouts with a generous amount of Modge Podge. Don’t worry about getting it on the glass, as the paint will cover it up. Let the Modge Podge dry thoroughly.

4. Once the Modge Podge is dry, paint the inside of your vase, covering the cutouts. You might have to do several coats – but let the paint dry between coats.

And here’s our sassy little creation! This vase is perfect for housing a cutesy succulent. (But make sure not to get the interior of the vase wet, as we used water-based paint.) It’d make a great candle holder, too. Or it’s bold enough to stand alone – no practical use necessary, just pure decor. I love it. Decoupage is cool again. For real.
