Good Morning and Happy Friday! I love weekends, don’t you? Somehow Friday morning just feels more relaxing to me even if I have a ton to do and a packed full weekend – it’s a mind thing I suppose but I’ll take it 🙂
Today I want to share my Test Tubes and Bedspring Flower Vase with you. I’ve used old bedsprings before in decor as vases, using a clay pot to hold the plant and tucking it into the spring. This time I had some vintage test tubes on hand so when I saw this idea on pinterest I decided to make a few.
We have plenty of scrap wood laying around so my hubby grabbed a board and cut it up into squares. I sanded them down, rounded the edges a bit, painted them white, and then sanded them a bit more to distress them.
The test tubes were a fun find at a school sale.
You could hot glue the test tubes onto the wood if you wanted them to be secure. I prefer them loose so I can easily fill them with water and then place them back in the spring holder. Also, I can move the test tubes around if need be to display the flowers to their best advantage.
What fun, simple projects have you done this summer?
