How to: DIY Vase

As I was eating my fish and chips on Friday night (treat night), I was looking at my nearly finished vinegar bottle thinking what a nice vase shape it would make for my tables as its long and slender and would look lovely with a single bloom inside. I have been collecting jars and milk bottles over the past few months to use as vases; I think they add a really nice touch to a table, all mix and matched shapes and sizes and fit in perfectly with our homemade feel.

Simply:

1. Take off the label by removing as much as you can by hand, the rest with warm soapy water and a scourer

2. Remove the cap

3. Wash out thoroughly in the sink

4. Use something decorative to wrap around like a ribbon or jute twine (I picked this up from Wilkinson at £2.00 for 250 metres)

5. Tie in a bow or wrap around and fix with superglue

This took me 10 minutes to do and I think looks like a really nice addition to my ‘vase’ collection

Would you give something like this a go?
