I was so busy this weekend and today, I haven't gotten as much
crafting done as I'd like. But how cute is this...
I found the plans for this at A Craft a Day. She used a different style vase with a glass. You can find her tutorial here:
She has a fantastic blog with crafts and tutorials to make it easy for people like me, who just want to add a little fun to life, to be crafty, too. Please go check it out.
Here is the glassware I had when I started. Well, actually, even though I have several vases, nothing worked, so hubby and I went to the Salvation Army store. This glassware cost me $1.96.
Then I placed a smaller vase into one of the larger vases...
WHAT is wrong with this picture???
Right, well, I couldn't put the candy in!
The lip of the smaller vase matched perfectly to the lip of the larger vase.
So I tried a Starbucks Frappaccino glass... It worked!
Ta Da! I just added the candy and I was done. But I didn't have any fresh flowers (which really is the point of the vase...) but I did have fake flowers so I stuck them in. It doesn't loose its charm, and when I can get to the flower shop this weekend I'll pick up some great smelling carnations. And I will finish my other vase when I finish my Frappaccino ;-)
I hope you get a chance to be creative today!
