Summer time is here so that may mean a little bit of extra time around the house…perhaps a “staycation” has gotten you in the mood to do a little clutter cleanup.
If you are at home with the kids for a fun filled summer break, this project idea could also be a perfect way to spend a few hours.
The easy and least expensive way to do this project is collect all those flower vases you may have been holding on to over the years. Don’t be shy about asking friends and family to check their home for vases that can be repurposed for this project.
Of course, you can always purchase a vase or mason jars…spend as little or as much as you want. That is my favorite way of doing projects. If using ones from home, clean them out to look like new (if needed).
Next, we are going to fill a vase with flowers. You can pick flowers from the yard or buy some for this project. For the extra crafty ones reading this, you can even make them from paper, crochet…let your crafty imagination take over on this idea.
Once you have a vase and flowers, you can embellish your vase with ribbons or brown string tied in a bow. You can also add a home-made or purchased card to add to the vase for giving.
The next step is to gift your vase creation. Think of a person you know who may be in need of your special gift. Perhaps a neighbor, friend, or family member could really use a smile, and YOU can make their day a bit better by dropping off a handmade, heartfelt gift. Give it a try and enjoy the warm and fuzzies you will feel for your kind efforts.
Another way you can gift your flower vase creation is to nursing homes, hospice centers, or hospitals. There are so many wonderful people out there that have no family around. Just pick up the phone and start calling for information on patients in need of a little joy and deliver your projects, maybe even make a new friend..
We would love to hear from you. Let us know how this project idea worked in your household.
Smiles and Good Cheer,
