I had this fabric left over from my antique table and chairs overhaul I did last year.
Since my vase (one I’d received flowers in once and never used again…you know the vases I am talking about!) was flat on all four sides, this was four easy cuts.
I sprayed each piece with spray adhesive, applied, and secured with a couple of rubberbands. If you prefer the raw cork look, you’re done once the adhesive dries! If not, continue on…
Using a piece of tape, I secured the selvedge edge of my fabric piece directly to the cork.
Wrapping tightly (think skinny jeans tight) around my vase, I finished the side with tape by stitching it closed.
Using my trusty elmer’s glue and my index finger, I glued the edges down inside and underneath the vase.
Once the glue dries, you’re all done!
Doesn’t my desk look so much more fun now? So much better than any old plastic pen and pencil holder. Oh, and all of those random sticky notes floating around on my desk? They now have a home pinned to my cork container. 🙂
Never miss a thing.
