Since Spring is officially here, it is a perfect time to surround yourself with flowers. If you are looking for a pretty, new, environmentally friendly vase, here are two great ideas.
Make a Stenciled Flower Vase from Recycled Materials. It is easy and all you need is an empty water bottle, scrap fabric, a brush, paint, scissors, needle and thread, permanent marker, and clear adhesive paper. You can probably decorate the fabric in other ways, or you may even want to use construction paper instead. Depending on the audience, this concept can be applied to all ages and skill levels.
If you don’t want to use fabric and paint, you might want to try this idea from Wikihow. Make a vase out of a plastic bottle with just scissors and some careful folding. The end result is a pretty vase that looks like crystal. It is unbreakable and can even be recycled later. I would love to try this one.
If you do try either of these projects, or any other craft idea, I would love to see pictures!
