Decorative Ribbon and Doily Vase

This beautiful vase intrigued me.  I had to try to re-create it.  Of course, I didn’t read the instruction’s first. I just saw this picture and thought,,, hey… I can do this…

Like always, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.  I assumed that by looking at this briefly that it was decoupage.  I assumed that clear craft glue had been brushed on the clear vase and a decorative fabric or doily had been stuck to it. It would have to have another coat of glue for a finished affect. I’m sure that there are those of you out there who can work with that stuff with great success, but it left my vase stiff and shiny.  And it did not look at all like the picture. 

Then I read the directions.  The doily had been stitched on to the vase.  Place the vase in the center of a round doily and fold the edges up, and stitch them together.  Then tie a decorative ribbon bow around the top of the vase.  The clear glass vase will disappear and you will have a stunning vase like this.  All your guests will secretly touch it to see how you did it.
