Take an old vase or milk bottle. Use a foam brush to cover it with a mix of half white glue and half water. Cover it with torn paper with Victorian prints and paper doilies, using more glue as needed. A quick spray with spray shellac of a coating of a quarter white glue and 3/4 water and you're done. Bonus if there's some angel-dust glitter to sprinkle on. Takes minutes. Decoupage was big in those days as it was a way for them to use fabric and paper scraps, and the Victorians were surprisingly industrious.
