My Herb Vase How-To
I saw this beautiful vase on Lisa Porter's blog (one of the loveliest blogs out there , by the way) not too long ago. I was so in love with it I had to give it a try.
Here's my first attempt...a little sloppy , I know, but the next one will be better.
Everything you need:
a receptacle ..I just used an old drinking glass
Lamb's Ear , several ( the plant please..not the animal)
Misc. other plants ( the tiny flowers I used are actually weeds)
double stick tape
There really is not much need for instructions....Just tape around the glass....
add more tape.....
Add leaves and flowers or herbs in a way that is pleasing to you...
And voila !
I think it's pretty as is. I'm going to use this one to keep my cut herbs in water on the windowsill.
But next time I'm going to make some for table decorations for a party.
Her's an even easier idea. I wrapped one row of tape around a votive holder and added hydrangea leaves. Tied a piece of raffia around it to finish it off.
I have a party coming up in August and I will make a bunch of these for my screened porch.
