Hi there, Morgan here from The Patient Mom blog! Don’t you just love the glass vase from the Spring 2022 Box? It’s such a classic and beautiful piece. I usually display it in my kitchen with the faux lamb’s ear stems.
However, we all know how much I love to decorate for the holidays so that got me thinking about how I might use this vase in my holiday decor? After some playing around with burlap and flags, I came up with the below vase hack that is perfect for Memorial Day! The best part?! You can un-hack it after the holiday! Instructions are below to hack your own.
- Glass vase
- Red burlap ribbon
- White chunky yarn
- American flags
- Patriotic pinwheels
Cut a piece of red burlap ribbon long enough to wrap around the mouth of the vase and cover the twine.
I folded mine in half (the hot dog way) to make it thinner. Glue the ends of the ribbon together so they stay around the vase but do not stick to the vase. That is important if you wish to un-hack later.
Cut another piece of burlap ribbon and tie in a cute bow.
Glue the bow around the mouth of the face where you just secured the other red ribbon.
Fill the vase with chunky white yarn this will help to hold your flags and pinwheels in place.
Insert flags into the vase. I used four flags.
Now, add the pinwheels to make the vase look full.
And now you have a super cute memorial day themed vase that would be perfect on a shelf on a mantle or even as a centerpiece on a table.
