Vases (Test Tube)

Yesterday I wrote a piece on displaying silk flowers and there were lots of them in that lovely garden pot.

However, if you prefer real flowers, today's post is an idea to show you how you can buy a single stem and enjoy it without the need for huge water-filled vases or tubs.

I paid 20p for this test tube at a car boot sale and I knew that it would make a handy vase.

All you will need to follow this blog-make is a test tube, copper wire and some snips.

Simply cut a piece of copper twice the length of the test tube and fold in half.

Wrap the copper around the top of the tube and then twist until both wires are together.

Now make a hook and fold the wire back around the top of the test tube.

All you need to complete your look is a window sucker and a flower head of your choice.

So simple and yet so easy to make. I really enjoyed making it so please feel free to leave a comment if you make you own.

Pop back soon,
