DIY Glitter Vase Gift

This is a great craft and is so very simple to do. I saw this done on a TV home decorating show and couldn't wait to try it. I will be hosting my oldest daughters baby shower in June this year and thought this crafting project would be great to make a few of these and give them out at game prizes for her guests.

The estimated cost to do this really was just an estimate to try . I know not everyone shops at the same place for crafting supplies. However if you ever have the chance and have a value store like Dollar General or Dollar Tree I do encourage you venture in sometime and take a look around. I know you'll be surprised in just what you might find.

And for me I am always on the look out for the best affordable items as I have a very tight household budget. All the glass vases, glitter (pk-6), foam brushes (pk-6) and glue (pk-6) I bought at the Dollar Tree and my cost for three vase projects came to $6.


Time required: 1.5 - 3

Difficulty: easy

Cost: $5-10


  • Elmers Glue
  • Glitter
  • Glass Container your choice


  • Clear work area
  • Disposable tablecloth
  • Small Foam brush
  • Dry small Paint brush
  • small container cup for glue
  • bowl of water
  • Clean dry rag for any clean up
  • square or oblong pan to catch loose glitter

Step 1: Set-up your work area

Step 2: Apply glue onto glass a section at a time.

Step 3: Sprinkle glitter to cover area of glue Apply glue again to new section of glass Once complete let glue dry before you start second layer of glitter

Step 4: Apply glue half way up glass Repeat sprinkling glitter until you completed all areas around glass Once complete let glue dry before you start third la

Step 5: Layer one on the right. Layer two on the left.

Step 6: Apply 1/3 way up glass from the bottom Repeat sprinkling glitter until you completed all areas around glass

Step 7: 1st stage to final stage

      A fun project for the family or classroom. You can get creative with these as gifts for each individual also.

      These would make great gifts as well as look great in my girls rooms! I think I'll make a summer day project out of it and let them make them for their own rooms.
