I made a "Sign Post" of some of the places we've been lucky enough to visit. I used scrap wood and painted (with craft paint), the destination and miles from our home and screwed them into an old post we already had. I love the Caribbean colors and it makes me smile, remembering the fun we had on each trip!!! :D
I am calling this a vase, but it's actually a sleeve! I wanted to keep the bottom open so that I could decorate easily with real flowers by putting them in a glass jar and covering it
with the wood sleeve. This took me around an hour start to finish and I love it! If you don't have scrap wood laying around, the cost of wood is still under $8. You can see the full tutorial at http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2013/04/scrap-w...
