Florida Gardening: DIY Vase

Team leader, The Wooden Bee, has a passion for gardening and nature. She blogs about gardening with her children and recently shared this easy DIY vase idea!

We love upcycling materials around the house. One weekend while playing in the backyard, the little gardeners gathered up a bunch of sticks from our rain tree.  We decided to glue them to a washed tin can to make a little backyard vase.

We left the sticks different lengths to help arrange and hold the flowers.
We doubled up the stick layers to cover the aluminum.  You could also paint the tin can for a little extra color to show through.
We've been enjoying flowers in our eco-friendly little vase all week!
