Recycled Flower Vase : Pot Pourri Holder..


I love this vase. So many different ways to use it. I brought from Ikea years ago. It only cost a £1.00 too.

So far it has been a vase for all my beautiful flowers that I have been brought me over the years. One time I popped dried pasta into to make an Autumn fun feature around Halloween with a candle in the middle. Whoo, and now I have turned it into a pot pourri holder.

A simple makeover to match my mood!! Also to match the season. Easy eh!?

Upcycling is so much fun and easy to make some look different without spending lots of money.

Do you like to upcycle too? If so, what kind of things do you like to upcycle.

  5. Loving the fresh and up-to-date look you've given it with just some garden twine. Lots of people slate Ikea but I think they do some really classic and simply designed items which last - as you've proved! Thanks for linking up to #pocolo x
