The fragile nature of glass means that the material is susceptible to cracks when it is not handled with care. Glass vases are especially at risk because they are typically narrow in shape and have a slender base, which can be knocked over easily and damaged. Fortunately, you can repair your cracked vase in the comfort of your home with a few speciality tools.

Locate the area on your glass vase with the crack.

Put on rubber gloves to protect your hands when applying the repair solution.

Apply the glass adhesive to the crack both on the interior and exterior of the vase. Squeeze the adhesive tube or apply using a cotton swab. This will seal and strengthen the cracked area.

Set the vase aside to dry for 24 hours before using. After this period it should be safe to resume using the glass vase.
