Easy Decorating: Chic and Stylish Vases

Make a Glistening Statement with these Refurbished Vases!

Today’s project is all about reusing what you already have in your home, for nothings quite more satisfying then taking something old and making it new again! Take a look around and ask yourself, is there anything in my home that I haven’t used in a while? Once you’ve identified those key items, determine which items are completely useless and which, with some work, may actually make a beautiful décor statement.

We decided on some old vases that were lacking any color and design. Using three of Fablon’s Premium Special Effects Liners, we were able to give them not only a new look but also bring a stylish touch to our existing décor.

The soft iridescent glow of the sticky back plastic added a touch of luxury that brought high-fashion detail to these once plain vases. Whether for flowers, greens, kitchen storage, or just for decoration, this simple decorating project was not only easy but helped us re-purpose those once forgotten items in our home.

After you’ve chosen your design and the item you would like to cover, take your folder or book and place it on top of the sticky back plastic. Trace the exterior of both the front and back covers with your pencil and then cut out your outline using a pair of scissors. Remove the liners backing and smooth into place. Any excess material either trim with your scissors or a craft knife. If you would like to cover the interior of your notebook or journal, just repeat the steps above!

IMG_3748

Creating your own work of art doesn’t mean that you have to be an artist or a painter; you can create something beautiful no matter your expertise! In the do-it-yourself era, it’s now more common to make it yourself then it is to actually buy it.

Today we tackle the project of creating our own modern wall décor using Fablon’s Barcelona Window Film. By taking an old picture frame and simply adding a touch of design and color, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we had an instant masterpiece on our hands that looked beautiful enough to sell!

Project Tools:

Barcelona Self-Adhesive Window Film

Craft Knife/Scissors

Empty Frame

Marker for tracing

Step 1: Measure the width and height of your frame (for this project we measured the height and width of the 9 individual panels)

Step 2: Using your measurements, trace an outline of your frame on the backside of your film (we traced one panel outline and then used that to trace the remaining 8 panels)

Step 3: Once you’ve cut out your outline, make sure your frame has been cleaned and then remove the film’s backing and smooth into place

Step 4: Remove any excess material using a craft knife (make sure to pay attention to the design and colors of the film, we used different parts of the design to make sure our final picture blended together seamlessly)
