Step 1

Wrap the vase with veneer

Roll veneer around a cylindrical glass vase and cut it to length to allow a 2-inch overlap. (You can trim the veneer to the height of the vase or leave it slightly higher than the top of the vase.)

Step 2

Brush stain on veneer

Leave the veneer unfinished or apply a stain (we used Sunbleached). Wipe away the excess stain and let dry.

Step 3

Iron veneer ends together

Check that the steam feature is turned off on your iron and let it heat to the "cotton" setting. Roll the stained veneer around the vase and use a hot iron to bond the veneer to itself.

Step 4

While the adhesive is still hot from the iron, roll the vase to place the seam against a hard surface and press down to seal the outside edge. Continue pressing until the surface cools.
