The moment I saw this beautiful glass vase in HomeGoods , I thought this would be perfect gift for my aunt’s Birthday in the form of Sand Terrarium. It was suppose to be surprise Birthday gift for her but unfortunately I broke it (just a small hole on the lower right side). A fine glass vase goes from treasure to trash :(. Luckily it wasn’t a major damage to the vase but didn’t know how to fix the problem.
Couple of my friends and family suggested me to recycle the vase instead of reusing because of the safety issues. But I was like how can I trash this fine glass vase…why can’t we reuse it 😦
Then one of my dear friend Lori Carrig suggested me to fix the vase with clay and be creative after that. That’s it, perfect idea and remembered how Vidya fixed her broken planter.
First I covered the vase with sellotape where it was broken so that I can get some base to cover it with clay. Then I took the clay and covered up the holes inside and outside.
Now the real work started, I have never used the hot glue gun before, So my cousins jumped in to help me in this project. So sweet of them to help me out, lucky to have them…
It took us almost one hour to wrap the whole broken-messy part. Finally we finished covering the damaged part with jute twine…Not bad right???
my first DIY project and had loads of fun with my cousins while doing this project….a fine glass vase from trash to treasure.
