Upcycled Horse Show Ribbon Collage Vase Craft

If you or your child has been horse showing for any length of time, you know how quickly those ribbons tend to pile up! So, from time to time, we like to create some fun new DIY projects that incorporate upcycled ribbons. Follow the directions below to make your own collage vase with ribbon “bouquet.”

Horse Show Ribbon Vase

First we decided to make a horse-themed collage vase.  We found a vase at a thrift store, and rescued an old horse book out of my aunt’s trash.

To make this craft, you will need:

Mod Podge

To make:

1. Cut pictures that you like out of book.

Book pages

Horse Pictures

2. Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge over the vase (it will dry clear).  Stick pictures all over the vase in collage style.

3. Paint over pictures with a 2nd thin layer of Mod Podge.

4. Let dry.
