Make Over a Dollar Store Vase with Hot Glue!

Kathy from The Budget Decorator gave a dollar store vase the easiest makeover known to man – with hot glue! Kathy simply turned her vase while putting lines of hot glue around it to create texture. This is the perfect pick-me-up for any plain glass candle holder, vase, etc. Kathy has plenty to be proud of with this vase. Like she says, “It looks about as close as you can get to the original vase!”

Kathy was inspired by the Spin Hurricane Vase from Crate & Barrel.
