Looking for a quick and easy way to decorate this season? These adorable homemade flower "vases" take only 5 minutes to make and are the perfect little quick and decorative project!
I am really loving wildflowers right now and they looked absolutely beautiful in these! I love the whimsical look of lots of different flowers put together and these vases made a perfect new decoration for my little apartment!
These would be gorgeous grouped together as a centerpiece when made with various patterns of paper. I just love the vintage and rustic look of these vases!
What you will need:
- Empty tin can - label peeled off
- Scrapbook/decorative paper
- Craft glue
- Optional: ribbon, twine, lace
Cut paper according to the length of the can. Spread glue on the back of the paper and wrap around the can, gluing around the edges after wrapping. Decorate with additional ribbon, twine, lace, sequins... the options are endless!
Tip # 1: Be sure to cut the paper to the exact length that you want it prior to gluing as it is difficult to shorten the paper after it has been glued! You also don't want the paper to be in contact with water/flowers.
Tip #2: Use Mod Podge to further smooth the paper onto the can! This would add a slight glossy finish as well.
