Recycled Vases for Spring

Vases

Following on from our mini-makeover post yesterday we thought we should share some ridiculously simple ideas for some springtime recycled vases to brighten up the corners of your home. Super easy to make and they look ace too.

Taking an old tin and cleaning it up to use at home is always a winner. We chose a Brasso tin mainly because it was almost finished (and it’s been under the sink since 1986).

We cut up an old Vanish spray bottle for its beautiful bright pink colour to match our Spring bluebells. We peeled off the label, hacked off the neck and bob’s yer uncle, a bright pop of colour on your mantelpiece. It works a treat with our other makeshift vases, ours were a combination of random ceramics, ice-cream sundae glasses and an elephant teapot thrown in for good measure.

Happy making! x
