Simple Washi Tape Vases #SpringColors

Teacher’s Appreciation Week is next week at my sons’ elementary school. I needed a gift that would be special and would make the teachers’ smile. And, I needed a gift that would require very little time to create. As I strode by the recycling bin, I grabbed some jars and had a wild idea.
These pretty vases would work for lots of other events too, say, Easter or Mother's Day? Or any day that could use a little brightening up!
Recycled jars
Washi tape
Are you ready? This is complicated, so pay attention! (You know I’m kidding, right?!)
Wrap washi tape around the jar.
Cut the end with scissors, and grab another roll of tape.
Repeat to your heart’s content.
Add water and flowers.
