One of a Kind Celebrations: D.I.Y. Decorative Vase & Pots
In this tutorial, we will be using Scotch® Brand Expressions Tape to give your floral arrangements and potted plants a playful (and super easy) makeover.
What you will need
- Vases and plant pots (solid colours with no details will work best for this project)
- Scotch® Brand Expressions Tape (available in stores in May)
- Parchment paper
- Craft punches
- Floral bouquets and small potted plants
- Optional: Markers
To make the polka dot vase, you will need to first create washi tape stickers. Place strips of Scotch® Brand Expressions Tapes on to a piece of parchment paper. Be sure to slightly overlap the edges of each strip (this will ensure your sticker remain in its shape). For this project, we selected a solid colour and a coordinated pattern to create two types of polka dots for the vase. This is also an interesting idea if you are into mixing prints.
With your craft punch in hand, you are now ready to create your washi tape stickers.
Slowly peel the tape off the parchment paper, and start affixing the tape on to the blank vase.
Repeat step 3 until you are happy with the design.
We recruited Jill (aka The Rose Mint; she is also our Exhibitor Relations and Recruitment specialist at One of a Kind) to help with the floral arrangement. For this project, she created a beautiful bouquet using the following:
- Yellow Roses
- Ivory Lisianthus
- Yellow Freesia
- Peach Hypericum Berries
- Assorted greenery
We think this will make a stunning Mother’s Day present!
If you do not have a craft punch, you can simply use the Scotch® Brand Expressions Tape as a decorative border for your pots and vases.
For this arrangement, Jill used:
- Purple Anemone
- Purple Wax flower
- Purple Veronica
- Green Hypericum Berries
- Green Trick Dianthus
- Assorted greenery
This will make a great centre piece for a rustic wedding!
The washi tape stickers are also great for decorating small, potted plants. These will make great teacher’s gifts! By writing on the washi tape sticker, the succulent in the middle will make a great alternative to the traditional table number card.
