Spring Vase Upcycle

3 Materials
20 Minutes

I used fallen tree branches to upcycle a dollar store vase for a fresh spring look.

I had some simple vases I got last year at the dollar store and wanted to add a little spring flair to. They still carry these but you could also use any vase or even a pickle jar!

I went out side and gathered some tree branches and twigs that had fallen from my trees. I also used my floral snips and a glue gun for this project.

I roughly measured how long I wanted the sticks by holding them up to the vase. I didn't measure exactly because I wanted a free form look. A little imperfection is a good thing!

I used my floral snips to cut the sticks to size.

Then I spread a bead of glue along the stick and started arranging them along the vase.

I continued all the way around the vase.

Once.I was done, I let.it sit a few minutes to be sure the glue hardened before I added water.

Next I simply added some inexpensive grocery store flowers.

I love the way it adds a touch of spring to my coffee table! This is so easy, it could be a fun project for the kids to help with!

    Do you worry about bugs or termites with the untreated wood?
