After my wedding a little over a year ago, not many people had taken home these lovely centerpieces…………
they were all paid for through the florist and not rented or borrowed from our venue. We have been keeping them in our Office/Craft room ever since then. SOOOOO what to do with all these vases?!?!?! I (of course) searched Pinterest for ideas and inspiration, and felt a bit overwhelmed not knowing where in the house I could put it and find a home for, but I realized I didn’t need to make them all the same or use them all at once. I could make them seasonal or even get more creative and give them away as gifts. So here I go starting with one at a time……… today for DIY Friday we are doing a beach theme vase. Sand Dollar & Burlap!
As you can see I have 3 different sizes and plenty of each of them, so for this one I just chose the medium size.
I wrapped a wider burlap ribbon tightly around the vase and cut it accordingly leaving a little overlap to glue the seam; that way your not gluing all over the vase. I used E6000 industrial craft glue. This takes a bit to dry but will dry clear, and I had tied some twine a could times around it to hold the seam closed while it dried.
Then I just simply fed the twine through the sand dollar and carefully tied it into a bow!
And Voila!! The first of many more soon to come!
