It’s no secret that we love flowers here at the studio. We would probably have them on every surface of the house if we could, so we are always looking for cute ways to display pretty petals. Here’s what we did to make one of our own:
To be honest, hunting for the exactly right vases took up the majority of the time on this project. You need vases that have thin necks with wider openings at the top (so the rope doesn’t slide off), and you don’t want them to be too big overall so that they don’t get super heavy once you fill them with water. Once I found the perfect vases, we installed a robe hook and tied a long piece of twine several times around the neck of each vase. I gathered all the strands together and staggered their heights before tying the group of strands to the robe hook. Once the vases were hanging, I poured in water with a measuring cup and added some pretty flowers to finish the look.
Once these flowers have run their course I can remove the stems, pour the water into a bowl, and pour the bowl down the drain—this way I don’t have to untie the vases to dispose of the water. Easy!
