DIY Friday: Colorful Vase

Craft a centerpiece with pizzazz

Want a way to add color and print to that glass vase? Fabric and ribbon is an inexpensive and cute way to dress up a clear vase for your table centerpiece. The picture above is actually done with a cloth napkin!

Here is how to do it:
Unfold a napkin(or fabric), and set the vase in the center. Pull the napkin edges up, gathering the fabric, and tuck them over the lip of the vase. Make sure the napkin isn't touching the water or the cloth will become soaked. Wrap a ribbon around the neck of the vase and tie it in a bow.
