Upcycling - Scandi-style vase
45 min Easy

Just as soft colours create a sense of calm and tranquillity, white creates a flawless, textured look. Give old jam jars a whole new look with FIMOair light. Clear lines give them a minimalistic and totally Scandi-style feel. And this DIY home decoration is not only timeless, its white colour means it will fit in with any furnishings.

Step-by-step tutorial

One pack of FIMOair light is required for a medium-sized empty jam jar, or similar. Roll it out into an approx. 0.5 cm thick sheet using an acrylic roller.

Now cover the old vase with the FIMOair light sheet and smooth over the joins.

Use the modelling tool to create lines, dots and other textures.

When you are happy with your project, leave it to dry at room temperature (approx. 24 hours depending on the thickness of the FIMO).
