Spring is almost here! That means sleepy little flowers are going to start poking up through the ground, and I can’t wait. I have 25 non-traditional and creative vase ideas to share with you today, so you can also get exctied about spring. I know many of you are a bit more southern than I am, so you can put those to good use today! Heck, I’ve already been splurging here are there on some grocery store bouquets to brighten things up!
Some of these containers also have a food or drink use, so once you use them for flowers, don’t use them for food or drinks any more. Some flowers are toxic, even common ones and they can make you very sick. Even if you clean them, you never know. Once I used a container for a flower or plant, that’s all I ever use it for again.
Take an old banana hanger,lab flasks and a bit of gold paint to make a fun vase!
Use thrift store tea cups and mugs for an inexpensive vase idea.
Instead of throwing out broken, vintage jewelry, use it to decorate vintage vases and milk glass.
Ann from On Sutton Place has some great ideas!
I love how blue mason jars look with flowers in them! And, instead of hunting for vintage ones, you can even buy them brand new now.
No mason jars? Use recycled jelly and pickle jars!
Do you need a pretty vase to give flowers as a gift in? Draw one on a paper lunch bag and put your flowers in a large,plastic cup inside!
Use a vintage and un-used cow creamer or gravy boat to hold a small bouquet of your favorite blossoms!
And don’t forget bowls and urns can be perfect places for larger flowers!
Like this vintage ironstone soup tureen with wild roses as a creative vase idea,
this thrift store bowl for Peonies,
Or a vintage ironstone pitcher.
I love the way vintage silver and galvanized containers looks with bright white flowers.
Mixed and matched vintage bottles are a great way to make vases of varying heights for all kinds of plants and flowers.Even ferns.
If you have a canister missing a lid, keep it around for a few hydrangeas.
A painted CD crate with some glass jars or plastic cups inside is pretty way to show off some spring color.
Hyacinths are one of the first, and prettiest Spring flowers, but those grocery store pots are pretty gross looking.
Group a few in a basket to hide the pots,
Or add them to an inexpensive galvanized pot.
A vintage metal crate also looks pretty with flowers and vintage jars.
And City Farmhouse makes these amazing,personal birch bark vases.
If you have a plain glass jar, it can be wrapped in grape vine,to make a bird’s nest-inspired vase.
You can even dress up flower pots!
Town and Country Living shows how to add a creative touch. They don’t have to be plain old terra cotta anymore!
And, by using multi-purpose paint, a flower pot can be transformed with a boho flair.
