Materials Needed

In case you haven’t been following me, I recently attended Haven conference in Atlanta.  Haven is a bloggers conference for DIYers, you can read about it here if you’d like. At Haven , the sponsors provided many goodies in the ‘swag bag’, including this pair of tin snips or tin snip scissors. How to Use Tin Snips

For this simple DIY tutorial, I will show you how I added a little fancy flair to a simple glass vase.

The Project

Since the sheets are flat you will need to curl it a bit to wrap around your vase.  Make sure to trim the other end leaving enough to clasp them together.

Nest, hook the other end inside the folded edge.  Once hooked together you can press and flatten the seam closer to the vase. By doing this you are also locking the rough cut edge on the inside.DIY Using Decorative Tin
