Quick and Easy Hearth and Hand Inspired Dollar Tree Vase

Create the look of the Hearth and Hand brass wrapped glass vase for a fraction of the cost. 

How many of you have checked out the Hearth & Hand by Magnolia line at Target?  I've purchased quiet a few items, including the small glass vase with brass wrapblack and cream striped napkinstin container candle, smoke glass jugmedium house lantern and the wood nesting houses.   The line is super affordable and has some great pieces, but I still found a way to create the look for less.

I had the small vase with brass wrap on my nightstand for a few weeks when I realized I could easily create the look using a Dollar Tree vase I had in my craft stash.  This project took all of five minutes and is a super easy way to update a basic Dollar Tree vase.

Supplies for updating Dollar Tree glass vase, frog tape, gold leaf rub 'n buff
I started by wrapping a piece of frog tape around the base of the glass vase, making sure to press the edges against the glass to get a good seal.

I then cut a piece of tape in half and wrapped it about an inch above the first piece.  The last piece of tape was added just above the second, creating one thick and one thin band.

I added Gold Leaf Rub 'n Buff using Q-tips then smoothed it out with my finger for a cleaner look.

I removed the tape when the Rub 'n Buff was dry then smoothed out the tape lines with fine grit sandpaper.

It makes a great addition to my nightstand since it matches the lamp and picture frame perfectly.  (I used the same Rub 'n Buff on all three)

I still love my Hearth & Hand vase, but this Dollar Tree version is a great affordable alternative if you already have most of the supplies.
