If I hadn’t seen these pictures and someone told me they were making a flower vase by gluing dried beans to a 2-liter bottle, I would never imagine it to be anywhere near this pretty. And yet there it is, looking unexpectedly extraordinary! Jeromina from Paper, Plate, and Plane needed an inexpensive vessel to hold the daylillies she clipped from her yard; if you follow her blog at all, you know that this crafty lady has quite a knack for making quirky vases in practically no budget! Hmm… What else could you glue to a bottle to vary this effect? [how to make a bean and recycled bottle vase]
- 2-liter soda bottle, on hand
- Marker, on hand
- Dried beans, on hand
- Glue, on hand
- Spray paint, on hand or $1 and up
- Craft knife, on hand
Total: Free and up
whoa, deceptive! love the whiteout look.
I quite like this idea. My dd goes to school and I homeschool my ds’s, and this will be a fun activity to do with the three of them on a weekend with minimal effort. Thank you for sharing. If we do the project I’ll link back to you.
