Make a beautiful tablescape with vases you have written on. METHOD: Wash the vases with dish soap and let dry completely. Paint them with chalkboard paint and let dry for at least 3 hours (shorter drying time for other materials). Wrap with jute twine, tie a bow and finish by gluing a wooden ball to either end of the jute twine. Write on the bottle with a Chalk Marker. GLASSES: We wrote guests' names with a label maker and glued them to the glasses with sequins. They make beautiful place settings and are a smart way to keep track of whose glass is whose!
