My Version- French Fabric Wrapped Vase

Well I got myself right onto making this project that I posted about the other day.  Here is the picture of the vase I decided to replicate.

A quick trip to JoAnn's and I found some burlap 
printed fabric.

I hadn't used Mod Podge since the 70's so I did a little reading up on it and found some simple directions and I decided I could handle.  
That's my vinyl tablecloth I use for my projects!
Here it is drying.  I folded the edges to the inside and I created a seam on the back by folding in it's edge.

The print is a bit more bold than the one I found that I had decided to replicate, but I wasn't 
concerned that it was a precise match. 
I also put some Mod Podge on the jute twine to keep it from moving around and the ends from fraying.

This morning I set it up on the kitchen table in a 
little vignette.  The sun came through and 
played a roll in it too!
I tried some dried hydrangeas in it but it didn't do much for me so I decided to put this 
topiary ball on top of it. 
So there you have it!

  1. Perfect! It looks great! I really like it with the topiary ball on top, too. It's like something you would see in a fancy schmancy store! :-)

  6. Hi Liz,

    This turned out great! I saw the one at Michael's also, I like yours better! You're so lucky your Joann's has that burlap print, ours only has the key print one. I'm hoping they restock soon, I want to make a table runner! Have a great weekend! ~Marcy
