Crystal Embellished Believe Vase


Crystal Embellished Believe Vase

Jazz up your home decor with this Crystal Embellished Believe Vase. It's one the easiest crafts around. You can take your plain glass vase and turn it into a dazzling accent piece for any room in your house. Pick a word that has a special meaning to you and draw it on the side. Once you've added a few crystals you'll have a stunning piece of DIY home decor to put anywhere. With a bit of sparkle, this vase will add a touch of glam to any room you put it in.

Crystal Embellished Believe Vase


  • Elmer’s CraftBond® precision embellishment glue
  • Elmer’s painters pens in color of  your choice (white used on this project)
  • Glass vase, cylinder shape 
  • Various sized crystals
  • Tweezers


  1. With the Elmer’s Painters Pen, write a word in cursive on the vase, vertically. Laying the vase on its side on a tabletop can make this process easier. You can freestyle the word or use a flexible stencil.  Allow to dry.
  2. Add thicker details to the letters using the Elmer’s Paint Pen. Allow to dry.
  3. Add dots of Elmer’s CraftBond® Embellishment Glue to the vase where crystals should be applied.
  4. Use the tweezers to add crystals to the dots of Elmer’s CraftBond® Embellishment Glue. Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes.

  5. If you get glue on the glass by accident, wipe away with a damp paper towel. If the glue has dried, use a razor blade to remove it. Draw the wording with a permanent marker onto the glass before using the Painters Pen if you are concerned about getting the cursive writing correct. Use a darker Painters Pen to cover the permanent marker markings. Use glass cleaner and a soft towel to clean the vase before use.

You could probably even print out your word and tape it to the inside of the vase to use as a guide. Very cool project.

Very pretty. Would love to make these!!!

This is so bright and cheery, just love the colors!

This needs to be on the entertainment center in the living room. There is so much you can do with it, not just holding flowers. Colored stones, coins, candy, wishes, so many ideas...

Love this. I need to make these for Christmas.

Cute! I love it.

I would love to make these in different colors for every room in my house...

I love this project and the effects from the room lighting is awesome. I did one in silver for my tree room and the tree lights are reflected in the vase so looks like the vase has the same lights in it

My daughter and I will be trying this project this weekend. It looks fun and easy and something that we can do together.

this looks like something that my daughter would enjoy as a decoration for her wedding. Must try soon

So pretty, and I love the butterfly! I make a lot of crafts, especially at Christmas for gifts and sales. I never knew about this embellishment glue, I so could have used this on products this season! Next year; you can BELIEVE I will try it for sure.

An easy project with a pretty and functional result.

Great gift for any holiday!

Very elegant. I'll have to try this.

Sounds like a fun project!

This looks like an enjoyable project to do with my grandkids! Nothing makes a better gift than the creativity of children. We could have a lot of fun with this, not just the decoration but also the filling of the vase with fun and interesting items. :)

I would definitely make this as a gift for Mother's Day


What a great idea to dress up an otherwise plain and boring vase. Love it!

This is a very cool idea and would be great for writing names or holidays on the vase.

I like to bring flowers to special people. I could use this to decorate a recycled glass jar. No need to spend money on a vase. I could also decorate bud vases I buy at tag sales.

This is a very pretty project. I like using pain pens. They are less messy and easier to use.

So beautiful!

Such little details turn them into beautiful projects.

Beautiful!! :)

How simple and yet beautiful!

Gosh, wish I had seen this earlier. This would be perfect to hold homemade cheese straws for a party I am hosting this evening!

Such a great idea!

A perfect idea for all those clear vases that seemed to have multiplied under my sink.

This idea would be nice on generic, plain glasses for a party - customized with each guest's name so everyone can know which glass is his/hers.

I have not tried this yet, but I bought some small mason jars with fruit decorations on them. My plan was to paint the fruit on the jars to match my kitchen decor. The jars are still in the box cause I haven't found the right paint. This would be a perfect gift!!!

I have a full shelf in my kitchen cupboards filled with glass and crystal plain vases. I never thought about decorating them with words and crystals. This would look fantastic.

This would brighten up someones day.

Very cool! Would be great for any occasion!

Can't wait for the weekend to try this with the grandkids! This is going to be lots of giggly fun!

These would make lovely centerpieces for a bridal shower or wedding. Personally, I'd have to take care as to what I put INSIDE, so my cats stay safe....

I agree maybe as a gift.
