I’m sure you’ve seen them at the thrift store, those round vases for $2 or less? Well today I’m sharing how to update a thrifted vase with cane. I saw one at a high end garden store and thought, wait, I have leftover caning material from a previous project.

I was even more excited to try this because of the leftover cane from this side table flip I did a few months ago. I purchased a roll from Amazon.

HOW TO UPDATE YOUR VASE WITH CANE
I would bet there isn’t a thrift store you could go in that doesn’t have a few of these vases on the shelves. My advise is not to pay more than $2 for one, sometimes they are cheaper. I was happy with $1.49,
The first step is to clean off the label from your vase. I did it with a degreaser and razor blade but Goo Gone works well also.
The next step is to measure how high on your vase you want the caning material.
Then cut it with a sharp pair of scissors.
The last step (told you it was easy) is to attach the caning to your vase. I did it with a glue gun, adding a line along the vase and then one on the caning material itself.
The only challenge was my cane was rolled up and it kept bouncing back into a roll. I forgot that when I did my side table, I spritzed it with water and it makes it more pliable. So you definitely want to do that to yours.
HOW TO STYLE YOUR THRIFTED VASE
How easy was that? Such a fresh look for flowers or a candle. Now I have two for $3 and that’s not bad.
This style of vase goes with everything. If can fit into any type of decor. I’m loving styling it with pussy willow branches, ranuculus, tulips, you name it.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you update old vases?
Finding a vase at the thrift store is easy, and you may have some at home you have grown tired of. One of the easiest ways to update an old vase is with paint. You can use chalk paint, or a silk mineral paint.
Another idea is to cover it with peel and stick wall paper. It makes it easy to change it up, especially if you have some leftover from another project.
How do you make an old vase look new?
Adding this caning is a perfect way to make an old vase look new. You could also make it look completely different by adding some embellishments before painting. Think of a clay flower or object like I made in my vintage bunny pots. You could glue on a bunny and then paint the entire vase.
