Making Homemade Decorations for Your Home

Taking the time to add decor to your home can elevate it to a new level. The hard part is that decorations can be costly and decorating a room can become expensive fast. I like to take less expensive items and make them into something else! One of my favorite homemade items is my Elevated Glass Vase.

To make each of these it cost $2 plus the cost of a little glue. There are many different types of glue you can use, so pick out your favorite brand for this.

This project started with a tall straight vase. Get creative. Vary colors, styles, and heights of vases. Then you need two shorter candle holders as shown here.

You simply glue the candle holder to the bottle of the vase. I like to put the vase upside down and apply the candle holder that way.  Let dry and fill. I have filled with shells, christmas ornaments, marbles and more. This is a great way to add color through decor.

I have also taken candle holders and attached to plates to make a cake plate or an item to display or serve on.
