This little red bud vase was once a hand soap dispenser in my bathroom. One day when I was washing my hands, the thought occurred to me that it looked like a vase. And after a little brainstorming this is what I came up with. What's great about this vase is you can put flowers in it. Often natural vases are for decorative purposes only. I could also visualize this done with jute string. Directions below.
a glass or plastic bottle(I used a method soap dispenser and took off the lid)
raffia or anything else you'd like to use like lace, string, ribbon, etc.
glue - I used a basic white craft glue
Glue the raffia to the top of the container. Wind the raffia around the bottle and glue as you go.
While winding the raffia, have it overlap a little so none of the bottle shows through. Wind the raffia all the way to the bottom of the container. Done.
