DIY Geometric Vase (Psssst the trick is stickers)

How to decorate your patio with beach towels.

Did you see my patio on DIY Network?  I took some indoor furniture outside, new slipcovers were sewn from beach towels and there was some hard core cleaning done.  I’m in love with the end result.  I’m typing this post from the comfort of that very couch.


Not only did I revamp all the furniture I also tried to make the space as comfy and homey as possible.  That includes lot’s of books, pillows and of course my favorite crafty past time – DIY planters.  You might recognize that bikini bottom from the project I did for National Thrift Store Day, but today I wanna chat about the black and white geometric planter I made.



  • Craft glue
  • Glass vase
  • Spray paint
  • Cotton clothesline
  • Sticky back foam
  • Scissors

Step 1

Cover the glass vase in glue – small sections at a time.  While the glue is still wet wrap the cotton clothesline.


Step 2

Cut your sticky back foam into random triangles – big, little and of course medium.


Step 3

Cover the vase in foam stickers.  The more random the better.


Step 4

Coat the vase with your fabric spray paint.  You can also use real spray paint.  Where the stickers are will remain white (hence the resist part of this project).


Step 5

When the paint dries remove the foam and discard.  Fill with dirt, plant and perhaps a sprinkling of hot pink aquarium gravel for good measure.


Bam people!  Bam!  There it is.  Looks so spiffy and smart on my new and improved patio.  Who knew a thrift store vase could look so sexy wrapped in clothesline?  I do love me a good sticker resist project.


Looking for more sticker resist projects (and why wouldn’t you be).  I gotcha covered…
