Aren’t these flowers (and vases pretty?) I think so. I made these a little while back (when there was still snow on the ground  and I was just dying for spring to finally be here!) 🙂 Sitting in my windowsill at college, they looked darling and brightened up my day (and the whiteness all around me, including my walls as you can see!) 🙂 Anyways, these vases are great for anytime of year….perfect for all those little flowers your kids may bring you or your honey too! 🙂

Here’s how to make one:

You need:

  • Some kind of bottle: I used an old Tylenol bottle that I removed the label from…..This size bottle works great for little vases….or you could use  a can or maybe  an old mayonnaise jar. 
  • A tid-bit of string or twine you have lying around your house (you know you have some somewhere!:)
  • A scrap of fabric
  • Modge Podge (optional—not used here)
  • Tape/glue

First, remove the label (if possible.) Scrub it off as best as your can. Then dry the container. Decorate the container with fabric and string according to your desires. Tape or glue it on. If desired, modge podge over it. 🙂

Tada! You’re done!

And it only took 5 mins of your time and thing you already had on hand!

Enjoy! I’d love to see pictures of what you did! 🙂

PS. I’m so sorry for not posting much of late….I’ve been very busy with school and work lately but hope to have more “food” (recipes) posted soon. Until then, I hope you enjoy the flowers!!! 🙂
