Hi ladies so here is a DIY project that I've been working on today. I went on Dollar Tree website...
So I recently came home from a visit with my future sister-in-law (who got married 2 years ago) and she has given me 24 of these fantastic tall (16") cylindrical glass vases. I love them - they're great... but now I'm faced with my next question...
.... how to make them work? I've seen lots of people fill them with water, orchids and floating candles... or tall, minimalist floral arrangements, however I am making my flowers (see below) out of paper. My paper flowers are not minimalist or 'contemporary' in any way. They're crafty and 'peony-like' in their shape with full appearance.
Does anyone have any suggestions about how to make use of these glass vases I've been given so they compliment the flowers I'm making?
A few ideas I had:
- fill the vases with the flowers
- have branches in the vases and glue my paper flowers to the branches
- find some very long stems for my paper flowers and decorate the vase with ribbon or paint so as not to see the stems.
I need more ideas and hopefully a little feedback. Help me girls!
