For the price of a carton of milk or juice and the brown paper bag it came home in, you can make a very easy and simple vase in a matter of minutes. Display your cut flowers in a fun DIY re-purposed vase today!
- Cardboard carton of milk or juice
- Brown paper grocery bag (or butcher paper)
- Thin point black marker
- Craft glue and scissors
- Piece of tape
Open up the cardboard liter and cut off its triangle-like top.
Open the brown paper bag and cut along the seam. You want to use a front or back section for its size. Wrap the cardboard liter just like you would a gift box, leaving some overlap at the top and bottom.
With the cardboard liter wrapped, cut slits at each corner and fold the extra paper into the inside of the liter. Secure with glue. Repeat for the bottom of the liter.
Cut out a handful of simple brown paper leaves. Outline with a thin point black marker.
Glue the leaves onto the front of the cardboard vase. Cut out thin strips for stems and outline with a thin point black marker.
Insert cut flowers or a small potted plant.
