Paper Bag Vase
This was one of the funnest and easiest projects to date! Not to mention free and that’s always a win in my book.
It almost reminds me of pineapple skin! Lol.
Start with a bunch of paper bags. Depending on the size of your container will depend on how many bags. I used about six for mine.
I had this jar that I had painted previously. I liked the shape. Really you could use any container.
Start by folding one bag up and cutting your strips. I cut my strips about 2 inches wide.
If your strips are too wide it will be hard to braid them.
I then scrunched the strips into “rope like “ pieces.
I taped the ends together and used packing tape to tape it to my porch. I then braided three strips together and taped the ends again.
I started gluing from the top.
I just kept wrapping and gluing until I got to the bottom.
To hide the ends, I would tear a smell piece of paper and glue and tuck around the starting and stopping ends. This gave it a much cleaner look.
I sprayed it with a clear coat to give it a bit of protection. I then filled it with wildflowers and ta-da! I think it’s very summery looking ☀️
