An Easy Vase Redo

What a beautiful day it is today! I’ve got my windows open and the sun shinin’ in. I’ll be heading out in a bit to enjoy the sunshine. This morning, though, I had the itch to craft.

I haven’t done any projects in quite awhile so when I have the itch, I go with it!

About a month ago, I got this horrible vase for 97 cents at my local Goodwill. The guy wanted $3 for it and I said, “not a chance,” and haggled him down! Loved the shape, hated the color.

Just look at the close  up! Ick….

At first, I wanted to spray paint it. Then decided that jute might look nice. I’ve had this jute from Hobby Lobby for about 2 years. Got it from Hob Lob with a 40% off coupon. Cost me like $1.75 for the whole thing.

so, I just took my glue gun.

And glued away.

About 4 episodes of Pretty Little Liars later…

A brand new vase! For only $2. . . . score! Still not sure where I’ll put it, but for now

That was my bouquet from our wedding. I used silk flowers and am glad to be able to keep it. One day, I may put them in our children’s room.

Do you like it with the flowers?

What should I put in it?

    Great idea! I like the flowers. I’m a big branch person too so you could try those too to give it some height! It looks great! I would love for you to stop by and link up to my Ten Buck Tuesday link party (it lasts all week)!
