Harlequin Pattern Vase

Back a couple of months ago, I bought 5 of the same ceramic vases at AC Moore for $2 each... one of those vases turned into something for Valentine's Day and I decided to indulge in a current fascination for my second one.

A Harlequin Pattern.

Ever since I used a harlequin patterned fabric on one of the 3 boxes I can't get the pattern out of my head.

So, I broke out one of vases, some vinyl and my cricut and got to work.

 

 Materials used:
  • Ceramic Vase
  • Black Vinyl
  • Cricut
  • Computer to create the pattern
Step 1 - Measure the vase to determine how big the pattern needed to be. Turns out, it needed to be about 7.25"x14.5".
 

Step 2 -  Create the pattern on my computer, to be cut with SCAL.

 
 
Step 3 - Cut on the Cricut and apply... now, I should have applied using the same method I did with my letter plates...  So lets just pretend I did that, instead of realizing far too late that I didn't have any more contact paper to use as transfer paper.

And here is the finished vase, I absolutely love it...

 

  

Including the cost of the vinyl, this vase cost less $3 and if I outgrow my harlequin phase, I can just take the vinyl off and turn the vase into something else.
