This is one of those ideas that’s been bouncing around in my head for a long time. I thought up the general concept but never quite got around to figuring out the mechanics. Then I got the opportunity to guest post today at The CSI Project on the theme of spring and I knew it was perfect. Introducing the Spring Cleaning flower vase! [how to make a rubber dish glove vase]

- Rubber dish gloves, $2
- Large glass vase with flared lip, $1

- Glue, on hand
