An 'Uncle Bens' Flower Vase...
I am having friends over for tea later & when I was grocery shopping I saw these lovely tulips which I couldn't resist! I got home & couldn't decide what vase to put them in & as I was feeling like a mini project I decided to make the vase myself!
I'm going for the easy option tonight ie using ready made sauce, (gotta love Uncle Ben!) & I decided to use the jar the sauce came in for my little project...
I emptied the contents of the jar & washed it out & got to work with my ball of string ... winding it around, gluing as I went...
I added extra glue around the top so it wouldn't become loose.
The finished product:
I'm REALLY happy with how it turned out & it was oh so easy to make - took literally 20 minutes!
While on the topic of alternative vases, I played about with my little rose plant last week...I wasn't sure whether this idea worked or not?!
