How To Make A Recycled Vase

One of my favorite ways to decorate the house is with fresh flowers. There is nothing more beautiful than to watch flowers you've bought grow in your own home. As a way to end our "going green" week, we thought we would share a way to make an eco-friendly and reusable vase.

What you will need:
  • A rinsed out milk carton (any size)
  • Wrapping paper of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Double stick tape

How to:

First, cut off the top of the milk carton. An easy way to do this is to completely open the top, then cut down and around. If you want, you can make a cool rim (zig zags, wavy, etc.) Make sure to leave the bottom half at the height you want. Discard the top. Wrap the wrapping paper around the entirety of the vase and stick it on with the double stick tape. Fill it up half way with water, and add your favorite flowers. Voila! There it is - your very own recycled, reusable vase!

Have a great weekend and don't forget to check back next week!
