I always see those skinny milk glass vases at the thrift shop for pennies and it seems like such a waste to leave them there. I also have a HUGE stash of vintage jewelry. This is a great upcycle craft, because it uses two vintage items together that make something brand new!!! Vintage jewelry and milk glass vases!!! And I don’t know about you, but I see those for under a dollar all of the time at the thrift stores. I think these would be really cute for a bridal shower/centerpiece idea too.
Vintage jewelry pieces, old earrings, brooches, etc.
Super bonding glue like E-6000 or the less stinky Elmer’s Pure bond
Vintage milk glass vases
Start by washing the vases to get off any dirt or sticky residue and let air dry upside down.
Then remove the backs off the jewelry pieces. I do wear eye protection for this because those bits can go flying every where!
Once the backs are removed, you are ready to glue! I found laying the vases on their backs works best, you can also use a little low-tack painter’s tape to keep the pieces on place while the tape sets.
Then they are ready to go! It takes about 24 to 48 hours for the glue to cure to use them.
And I also clustered some of the earrings too. This is a great craft for all of those broken jewelry pieces too.
These are very pretty with the earrings stacked on top of each other.
I clustered about 4 earrings on this vases. I love how it looks! I can’t wait to get some blooms in them from my garden.
Or at this rate, Trader Joe’s.
I now am going to start scoping out the vintage jewelry even more!
