DIY CENTERPIECE FOR ANY OCCASION

I love sparkle, and I love to "bling" things out when I get the chance.

I purchased these 4 inch square vases from the dollar store, and they looked, well, just plain.
I wanted to add some individuality to them.
I came across this wonderful roll of what looks like diamonds on a mesh background.
Love the sparkle!

Cut it to size and glued it to the vase.

Added some hydrangeas and some pink roses and, ta da.....done.  They look gorgeous.

Take a look.  What do you think?










Here are the 4 inch vases and the diamond mesh roll.

  3. Love them Angie --- they went from drab to fab! That mesh is super cool --- where did you find it? Is it costly? It's be so pretty to use at Christmas!

  4. Thanks Jen! That mesh is really nice. I have seen it used for so many things. It comes in many different colours. The one I used was silver. It comes in gold, blue green, red, purple. I don't know where you live, I am in Toronto, Canada and I got them at Creative Bags. The role is 10 yards long and cost $29.00. It is 5 inches wide, and you can cut it to any width and length you want.
    It would be really nice for Christmas!
