I love red, white and blue projects in the summer so when I found some clearance vinyl at Hobby Lobby in red, white and blue, I had to get it. All together it was around $10 and I will be able to make multiple projects with it. Today’s project was just an idea I had in my head that I wanted to try out and I love how it turned out!
Today I am part of a really fun Patriotic Blog hop with some amazing bloggers.
All of the patriotic projects are listed at the bottom of this post and they are so good!
Thank you to Pasha from the Pasha is Home Blog for hosting this wonderful patriotic hop!
Patriotic Vinyl Vase Supplies
Red, White and Blue Basket Weave Vase Tutorial
I love a good weaving project and this clearance vinyl was screaming to be a basket weave, don’t you think?
To get started…
Measure and cut your vinyl into 2 inch strips leaving 2 inches at the top uncut as shown here.
Next, fold the vinyl in half to cut the colors into 2 inch strips.
This time you will cut all the way through so that each 2 inch strip is separated.
I used my rotary scissors and straight edge on my cutting mat to make sure my strips were even.
Fold every other strip up toward the top of the piece of vinyl where it is solid.
Lay down one strip of white vinyl making sure that it’s pressed up to the top tightly.
Then lay down the blue strips.
Lift the opposite blue strips and lay down your red vinyl and repeat this until you have as much of the weave as you will need for your project.
Add a little dot of hot glue to the end pieces of the red and white strips so they don’t move around, and then trim them to be even on the edge.
I used painters tape to hold my vinyl down on my glass vase until I was able to make sure that it lined up with the bottom of the vase and then I hot glued the vinyl in place.
Roll the vinyl weave all the way around and trim it to fit.
Hot glue the other end to the glass vase and to the other end of the vinyl as well to secure it.
Trim any excess from the top and bottom.
Fill with your favorite flowers and water and enjoy!
