Some broken vases can still hold beautiful flowers. Read how you can make beautiful and attractive best out of waste Vases to grow flowers using materials available in your house. Do It Yourself!
1. Use a clear glass container for the vase. Fill the glass container ¾ full with marbles before adding the water or the flowers. The sculptures will help the flowers stand up, so you don’t have to fill the vase opening full. Glass containers can be canning jars, drinking glass, water pitcher or cocktail shaker. Objects inside the vase can be buttons, beads, glass globs, pennies, rocks or seashells. Fruit can also be used to fill the jar. They will last about as long as the flowers. You can use fresh cranberries, lemon slices, lime slices, orange slices. Please don’t eat the fruit.
2. Use a clear vase that has an opening about the same size as the bottom. A block type vase will work best. Cut the flowers the same height as the vase. Put them in the jar. Fill with water to just below the flower covering the stem and leaves.
Use food coloring to accent the water. Only use a small amount so that the water doesn’t become too cloudy. If the water is too opaque, you won’t see the leaves. Try using yellow or green for the best results.
Put some small object in the bottom to create an aquarium look. A fishbowl would be good for this idea.
3. Grow grass in a flat flowerpot. Add fresh cut flowers throughout the lawn. Change the bulbs as they dye.
Use long and narrow flat pots for this to line a wall. This can give you a flower garden inside. This would also be great for flowerboxes that don’t get enough sunlight to grow flowers.
