Vase Variety

Decorate for your next patio party by picking flowers from your own backyard. Gather tiny glass bottles, and scatter them down the center of your table on a matching runner. Each of the vases should hold one to four stems of your favorite flowers. Guests will enjoy the variety of colors and scents.

Floral Monogram

This bright DIY monogram can be made with fresh or faux ranunculus flowers. Shape a letter or symbol out of cardboard and glue together. Fill your letter box with small jars, and accent with one or two flowers per container.

Carnation Container


Assemble this vase quicker than you can pick carnations. Gather any glass or plastic cylinder vase, hot glue, and rope. Wrap the cylinder in the rope, gluing as you go. Add water and flowers when complete. Pair two or more vases for a stunning centerpiece.
