Vases : 5 easy & inexpensive dress it up ideas
Spring has sprung or in some cases is springing, that means time
to break out the flower vases for all those pretty blooms you want
to showcase. I've come up with 5 easy and inexpensive ideas to
dress up your old tired vases. These are ideas that recquire 2 vases.
one larger than the other. This is so you can add water to fresh
flowers in the smaller vase without messing up with the decor items.
1. STREAMER WRAP - simply tape the end of the streamer to the
bottom of the larger vase, start twisting and pushing down lightly,
wrapping around the inner vase. When at the end tape at the top,
to keep in place. Streamer comes in at $1.00 or less at that.
2. TABLE CLOTH COVER - if you've just discovered you ran out
of tissue paper, consider using those $1.00 disposable table
cloths. Also comes in various colors and sometimes designs.
All you need to do is cut a small portion of it, i unfolded
mine only once, so I would have a double layer. Then push it down
into the larger vase with the smaller vase and trim off the excess.
3. GIFT BAG COVER UP - do I really need to give directions for
this. Ha! Place inside the large vase then place small vase inside!
Gift bags come in various occassion themes and shopping in dollar
markets, means you can get them for as low as $1.00.
4. EASTER GRASS STUFFING - just because Easter is over,
doesn't mean you can't still use those pastel colored grasses, it
is spring after all, who says you can't use green grass all year
round too! Bags of those Easter grasses usually come in at $.60
and after Easter Half off, right! Stock up! Just stuff the grass
in between the two vases.
5. YARN WRAP - This is by the most expensive as a skein of yarn
comes in under $5.00, however if your a crafter or know someone
who knits, you could always ask them for their leftovers and that
would Make this a free project. Tape the start of the yarn to to the
bottom of the vase then wrap around the smaller vase. Tape at the
top to help keep yarn in place. If you want a tighter look tape as you
go along in intermittent places. Use transparent tape, so you wont
see it. I did mine loosely, but you can tighten yours, if you like. With
the yarn wrap you can use one vase instead of two. I used two to
give more dimension and visual interest.
Hope you enjoyed these 5 low-cost easy ideas to kick it up a notch
for those bouquets you'll be showing off.
Keep it easy and cheap!
