I was recently introduced to Adhesive Wood Sheets which are thin sheets of real wood fiber that are sticky on one side to adhere to things. People use it to cover old wood tables and other objects to give it a new look. So I went looking for other projects this material could be used for and on the Sarah Hearts website I found an amazing craft project for Real Wood Textured DIY Painted Vases that I want to share with you. The result is really beautiful and looks like something you would buy in a store. These would make great gifts that anyone would enjoy.
What you will need:
– Adhesive wood sheets
– Glass cylinder vases (I used ones that were about 7.5″ tall and 4″ diameter)
– Craft paint
– Painter’s Tape
1. Cut the wood sheet to fit the height and circumference of your vase.
2. Place the wood sheet flat on a protected table. Use painter’s tape to tape off the bottom third of the vase. Paint the bottom part with craft paint making sure to paint away from the edge of the tape so it doesn’t bleed through. Allow for the paint to dry completely then remove the tape.
3. Repeat for the second (different) color. This time you’ll tape off both the top and bottom lines.
4. Remove the paper backing and stick the wood sheet onto the vase. Use your fingers to align the top and bottom edges. Smooth out any air bubbles with your hands as you stick the wood onto the vase.
