Upcycle a Milk Carton Into a Fall Leaf Vase
Unpack the groceries. Drink the milk (or OJ). Clean the carton. Now you're ready to make this very easy and simple fall leaf vase in a matter of minutes. It's a fun way to display your autumn flowers or a potted plant in this trash-to-treasure project! Seriously, what can you make for the price of a liter of milk and the brown paper bag it came home in? If you enjoy a re-purposing project, then this is a good one.
Once the cardboard milk or juice carton is clean and dry, open up the cardboard liter at its seams and cut off its triangle-like top.
Next, take the brown paper grocery bag you brought said milk or juice home in and cut it open along the seam so you have one giant brown paper. Wrap the cardboard liter just like you would a gift box, leaving some overlap at the top and bottom.
From the remaining grocery bag pieces, cut out a handful of simple brown paper leaves. Outline them with a thin point black marker. Glue them onto the front of the cardboard "vase" in a whimsical fashion.
Add cut flowers or insert a small potted plant for easy re-purposed autumn home decorating.
