Instructions:

  1. Clean vase with glass cleaner and paper towels.
  2. Use circle template and pencil to trace 2”, 1” and ¾” circles on paper. Trace as many as desired. Cut out.
  3. Put two small pieces of painter’s tape on circle, position inside vase and stick to glass. Continue with remainder of circles. Circles will serve as patterns when applying glue and beads.

  5. Working with one circle at a time, squeeze glue generously around inner parts of circles and use bristle brush to help spread evenly within circular pattern section.
  6. Sprinkle beads on top and gently tap with fingertip to set beads in glue.
  7. When all circles are covered with beads, let dry.
  8. Remove paper circles from inside vase.
