(craft tutorial) colorful hair tie vase

by Melanie of Reasons To Skip The Housework for See Vanessa Craft

Flowers are the perfect piece of decor – year round – and changing out vases is an easy way to add different touches to the decor each season. For Spring/Summer decor, I used the same Daisy flowers I’d used the previous season, but swapped out the vases with new jars – and added a twist! This would also be a great back to school gift idea for your child’s teacher!

To make these summery vases, you’ll need:

milk bottles – or any smaller vase / jar
2 packages multi-colored hair ties

I bought my milk bottle jars at Michaels – $1.50 each
The hair ties were 2/$5 at Target {although any moms of girls could probably round up enough just looking under the couch!}

I feel silly giving you a tutorial for this project, since it’s honestly super easy!

1. Decide a color scheme / mix of colors for your vases.
2. Group approx. 10 hair ties together and place them on the jar all at once. You can do it one by one, but really don’t need to.
3. Flatten them out and make sure the “seams” are all in the same spot.
4. If you want to secure the hair ties, add a dab of hot glue to each side of the bottom hair tie.

I didn’t glue my ties on, so I’m able to with out colors or designs for each season. They stay on perfectly well, unless you place them too close to the bottom of the jar. Add a few flowers – real or faux, and you’ve got a simple, yet colorful summer vase!
