DIY Pyramid Stud Trim Vase

Sometimes I need to remind myself that simple DIY projects can have the same impact as the more complicated ones. Case in point:

I DIY'd a pyramid stud trim vase in about 5 minutes using these 3 supplies I had on hand:

  • A vase
  • Pyramid stud trim (I got mine at Joann's)
  • E-6000 glue (hot glue works too)

Oh and scissors! They're only needed if you have to cut down your trim though. I happened to have some extra pyramid stud trim on hand that was leftover from my HomeGoods console table makeover so I just used that. If you have to buy some trim, you could always measure the diameter of your vase first and then buy that specific amount.

To start, wrap the trim around your vase to see how much you need:

(If you bought the exact amount of trim needed, skip down to the gluing step.)

Cut your trim down to size:

Put a little bit of glue on the end pieces of trim:

Stick the glued edge of trim to the vase:

Put some more glue on another strand of studs about 1/4 of the way from the first glue band:

I put glue on my trim at 12, 3, 6, and 9:

You could always glue every row down if you feel like it. I didn't because I was worried that glue would seep out around the studs and make a mess even though it dries clear.

After you've finished gluing the trim on, fill your "new" vase with water and some fresh flowers while admiring your 5 minute DIY project :)

What's your favorite kind of DIY project? The fast and easy ones or the more complicated, thought out ones?

I'm sharing this project on Our Fifth House!
