Today , class , we're turning ordinary cardboard containers that you lot could rescue from your recycle bin , into vases.

These vases tin can display real or artificial greenery together with flowers -- those finishing touches that every staged room needs.

My dressed-upwardly cardboard boxes tin too stand inwards for decorative holders in your staged kitchen or bathroom , like the ane at the left holding cooking utensils.

I'k a fan of cheap props because it means y'all tin can pack up your valuable too fragile belongings , as well as be prepare to act when your home sells. If y'all are staging a vacant menage , it'second easy to phase with these inexpensive as well as lightweight props because you lot tin toss them when yous're done. No commitment.

Meanwhile , they await downright pretty.

Here'second what yous ask

  • Rigid boxes amongst simple lines , similar milk cartons and oatmeal boxes. The bigger , the improve.
  • A wallpaper sample volume. Discontinued books are costless at paint stores , wallpaper outlets together with from interior decorators.
  • Scissors -- a abrupt , pointed duad.
  • Metal ruler.
  • Utility knife or X-acto knife.
  • Surface to cutting on , such equally a self-healing mat , or a cut board.
  • White mucilage.
  • Glue gun as well as mucilage sticks.
  • Oatmeal Box Vase
Choose the cardboard container you want to encompass. In this instance , I'k using an oatmeal box.
Choose the wallpaper you want to function. Wallpaper companies have already coordinated their lines and so you lot select 2 unlike patterns from one color system.

Choose ane wallpaper pattern for the background together with 
ane for the border. Or , merely get amongst 1 design.

Remove the newspaper y'all've chosen from the wallpaper volume. 
Use your utility knife , and then yous become a make clean edge.

Mark the newspaper to the perfect size , allowing 
for an overlapping seam.

Cut the paper amongst your knife , using the metal straightedge.

Test to live certain it'second a good match. Trim if necessary. 
If yous make a mistake , it'second tardily to just select 
another sheet of newspaper alongside a like design.

Test the border strip to be sure it fits.

If necessary , bring down the edge past cut away parts you lot don't want. 
This pace isn't ever called for merely on this design , I liked the await.

Heat your mucilage gun. Wrap the newspaper about the box together with 
double-cheque superlative and bottom alignment. Run a line of mucilage 
down the box to seal 1 border. Wrap the other border over the glue. 
Press amongst your fingers to flatten , keeping them away from the paper's border.

Flip the wallpaper border over on a disposable sheet of 
wallpaper. Run a occupation of white glue around the edges of the border.

Smear the mucilage about then it goes to the edge.

Position the edge where you want it on the box. 
Place the best-looking role of the edge away from the 
visible vertical seam of the offset layer of wallpaper. You're done!

Milk carton vase

To the right is a movie of our milk carton , all fancied upwardly. I used a xanthous wallpaper to wrap the entire box , and then glued a edge to the summit department. This wallpaper edge was already trimmed , saving me i step on this vase.

If y'all are using a milk carton , cut down away the peak constituent amongst pair of scissors. Be certain to launder milk containers , pass on them a bleach rinse , in addition to allow them dry good.

If you lot desire to use your "cardboard vase" for fresh flowers , but place a glass or plastic container inside to hold the H2O. For silk arrangements , you may desire to place floral foam in the base of the container. 

I hope you lot'll take fun creating these gratis containers to role for staging your home.
