DIY Sunday: Playing Dress-Up with Petals

Vaseskirt

Spring has sprung, and one of the sure signs that everyone’s favorite season is here is the abundance of fresh flowers. Whether at the corner store or the city’s flower market, buds in every colour are making an appearance.

But what happens once you bring that bouquet home? Most of us fill the vase with water, place in the stems, and all efforts there. So instead, have some fun and play dress-up with your petals by making them a little lace skirt. They’re great for brightening up your home, and can make stylish bridal shower centerpieces! This is how:

Tools:

1 Mason jar

1 meter of lace

1 meter of twine or yarn

Velcro stickers

Instructions:

1. Measure the mason jar’s circumference, and cut the lace as well as the yarn slightly longer than that.

2. Slip the lace around the jar, place the Velcro at both ends and let it stick in to place.

3. Once the lace is in place, wrap the yarn around the top-end of the fabric to further secure it and add an extra decorative element.

4. Cut all of your flowers to be the same length, and place them in the jar.

How do you arrange your flowers? Do you have any unconventional ideas or decor items to put them in? Feel free to comment or tweet @ThePoshDish.

Style is served!
