DIY Succulent Vases

It is time to look toward spring and summer and update my coffee table vignette, so I decided to get crafty and create these easy succulent vases to add some greenery to my interior. These are faux succulents, so I can’t kill them!
I began with a variety of empty pantry containers. Much like I made my coastal napkin rings, I used hot glue and began wrapping my first container with rope. I just kept wrapping and gluing, making sure I squeezed the rope tightly together as I added more rope to the container. When I got to the top, I made sure that I wrapped the rope around to hide the metal rim at the top of the container. The next step was to stick a piece of floral foam down inside the can without having it rise above the top edge of the vase. I added moss onto the top of the floral foam, filling the spaces all the way around the edge of the can.I “planted” my little faux succulent and it looked great! Time to start more!
For the third vase I decided to mix in some sections of hemp rope with the larger gauge rope for a little interest.
Some empty containers, some rope and a glue gun and glue can create some beautiful vases. You can use these for fresh flowers if you are using cans or other waterproof containers.
