Attach Lace to Vase

Apply a thick coat of Mod Podge on the top third of the glass. Wrap the lace strip around the glass, sticking it to the ModPodge.

Coat Vase With Glue

Apply a thick coat of Mod Podge over the entire glass, saturating the lace. Let dry.

Paint Vase With Acrylic Paint

Paint over the whole glass with matte acrylic paint. Let dry between coats. Paint on 3-4 coats, or until the glass is completely opaque.
