Charming Burlap & Crystal Glass Vase

This past weekend we hosted a Parisian Bridal Shower for our dear friend, Marcia.  Of course we wanted it to be the most special and beautiful day for her so we gathered the Bridesmaids and Moms and got to work!  These are the simple but sweet glass vase centerpieces we created. Such a lovely little pretty~ Enjoy!   


-Dollar Store Glass Vase (I got this one from Dollar Tree)

-Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun

-Twine (purchased mine from Michael's Craft Store with a 40% off coupon)


-Crystal (or another embellishment of your choice- check out thrift stores, flea markets, or even the craft store) 

-Burlap ~ The only place we have ever seen this French Script Burlap Ribbon is at our store, which we are happy to say you can purchase from our website here! Or you can just use plain ol' burlap!

EASY EASY EASY Instructions~

Cut burlap to size to fit around glass vase.  Hot glue it in place. Cut twine large enough to wrap around vase several times and then wrap around burlap.  Hang your crystal from the twine.  
That's it!  And then sit back and admire your simple, cheap, but super charming little masterpiece!  

Each Burlap Ribbon Spool was enough to make 8 centerpieces!  Everything included you can make these beauties for about $4 each!  

Oh, and we filled the vases with luscious roses that we picked up at our local Produce Junction.  We "flowered" our ENTIRE Parisian Bridal Shower for $41!  

Check back soon for more details and tutorial of the Parisian Shower!
