Now that it is spring, even though it is supposed to be summer you may find yourself looking for vases and containers which you will use for numerous wild flowers you are planning to pick, once it stops raining, snowing etc.
If you are do not plan to pick any flowers you can make them too:
All you need is some tissue paper and pipe cleaners for flowers and toilet rolls and fabric/paper scraps for the vase. A little glue may help too.
Roll up a few pieces of tissue paper and tie them with pipe cleaners
In the meantime using fabric scraps, ribbons or fun paper glue designs onto the toilet paper roll
If you are planning to use them with real flowers you can fold a mini cup into the opening. The mini cups are like the ones available at your dentist office, only for kids, available at the grocery store. Kids love them, or at least mine do.
The great thing about these is that you can barely see them and the trim adds a nice dimension to the “vase”
You could also use some spice containers, especially the McCormick spices work well, leaving a little glass detail to the design. At least this way you will know when you run out of water.
Use your paper flowers, fake plastic flower pens or real flowers to put inside vases. These were 3 year old made but I am sure with some nicer fabric and maybe some demure colors maybe you can make some adult worthy containers.
Either way now go and pick some flowers, run through the meadow even if you will still get wet.
