D.I.Y. -Budget friendly flower vase

I stopped by the “Dollar Store” the other day and when I saw these little shoot glasses a creative idea came rushing into my mind.

I could almost see them as a “Mini flower vase” for my kitchen window….and at  just only $0.80 cents each glass, I truly couldn’t resist buying them!

  • 3 glass vases of your choice.
  • A string of Natural jute twine.
  • Flowers of your choice.


It was very easy! I hope my pictures speak for itself.

But just in case :

  • Go around the glass vases in a zig- zag motion making loops around them.
  • I did it five times because my jute twine was quite thin, but if you have any thicker twine it will probably look better with 3 rounds.
  •  Tight up every row as you go – ( I left them loose int he picture for instructions purpose only)
  • Make a little knot at the back and hide it under the strings.DIY on a budget flower vase

And it is done!
It ended up looking so pretty that I left it on my entrance table.

Perhaps it’s time to go hunting for more glass jars. My kitchen window still needs a little something !!! ….
