As I was watering my flowers the other day I couldn’t believe my eyes. I think all of the flowers and bushes in my yard have tripled in size this season. I decided to cut myself a bouquet of flowers. While I was searching for a vase I stumbled across several vases taking up a lot of space and not being utilized. So, it hit me … for my DIY Quick Craft I was determined to find a use for all the glass vases and showcase my garden jewels! This month’s DIY is inexpensive and easy to create. I would love to see your finished quick craft. If you create this craft or any of the crafts featured in the DIY Quick Craft, please take a picture and email it to me at jhodges@CAWLM.com. Happy crafting! Supplies Glass vases (I used a variety of sizes and shapes); acrylic paint (choose a variety of colors); paint brush; water tubes (to insert in the vase with the flower); your favorite fresh cut flowers; newspaper How-To 2 min: Wash the glass vases. 5 min PER VASE: Pour paint directly into the vase, let it run down the side and rotate side to side to evenly coat the inside of the vase (add more paint if needed). 15 min PER VASE: Turn the vases upside down to drain the excess paint on the newspaper. 1-2 DAYS: Let dry. 2 min: Cut flowers and use the water tubes in the vases.
