Teaching Thursday: Spring Yarn Vase By Fireflies and Jellybeans

During National Craft Month we have several craft bloggers stopping by, to guest blog on Paint Me Plaid. Since this month is all about celebrating crafts, we also wanted to celebrate people who craft. All month long we will be introducing you to some craft bloggers. Today we have guest blogger, Fawnda, from Fireflies and Jellybeans.
Hello Paint Me Plaid! I am so excited to here guest posting today! I love all of the plaid projects and I feel honored to be part of this fun blog!
Let me introduce myself to you!
I am Fawnda and you can find me at Fireflies and Jellybeans! I am a thirty-something mom of a son (4 years old) and a daughter (22 months)! My Husband is my best friend and biggest supporter {I am very lucky}! We have all sorts of fun over at Fireflies and Jellybeans! I share crafty tutorials with you, and we have a fun Show Off Your Stuff linky party on Thursdays.

Today, I have a fun and easy spring decor craft for you:

Here is what you will need:
Mod Podge
Paint brush
vase
yarn

Here is how you make your own:

1. Paint on the Mod Podge on the top of the vase down about an inch. You don’t want to go down too far because the Mod Podge dries.
2. Wrap your yarn about the vase over the Mod Podge. Be sure to cover the end and push all the rings together tight.
3. Paint on some more Mod Podge.
4. Wrap more yarn… repeat, repeat, repeat!

5. Wrap all the way down to the bottom of the vase and use Mod Podge to glue the end in the place. I had to hold in in place while it dried. If you are in a hurry you could also use a dot of hot glue.

Add some cute embellishments and you have an adorable spring vase!

Thanks so much for having me over today! It was so fun! I would love to have you come and see some other craft tutorials I have over at Fireflies and Jellybeans!
