last minute flower vases

 Spring (and Easter) are around the corner which means flower season is HERE! I love using clusters of vases/flowers when entertaining and I always try to keep fresh flowers around our home but I never seem to have pretty vases on hand for my arrangements. So I asked my mom (the gardener and expert on all things flowers and arranging) to help me come up with a handful of SUPER fast and easy ways to transform things around the house into creative vases. 

Grab that acrylic paint and dip the bottom of a vase or glassware in the paint. The acrylic paint is not permanent but will last and hold up until you wash it!

A cereal bowl (glass, ceramic or even plastic) works great for flower arranging. 
Simply add pebbles or stones, place a floral frog (the best creation ever) in the stones and add flowers- the frog enables you to arrange the flowers upright. 
We added moss to the top of the pebbles.

Use a glass candle holder, shallow bowl or plate and paint with polka dots. 
Add a floral frog, water and flowers. 

Recycle those glass food jars (herb, spices, jam, baby food, etc) and use them as vases.
Use acrylic paint to add letters, words or pattern
Embellish the top with decorative ribbons, lace or beads.

Wine glasses and goblets make a great tall vase for flowers.

SO many everyday things can be filled with flowers. Take a look around your house and see what you can come up with!
