Aeons & aeons ago I made a stick vase/lantern. It still makes me smile Smiley when I look at it. But it's all on its own one side of the landing whilst the other side looks bare Sad.

I don't have sufficient prunings to make another similar one, so I had to think of something else. Undecided

Well, I use a lot of string in the garden, maybe one of those string vase things would be appropriate. So I tried it. Wink Easy enough to do, especially because I chose a very straight sided jar.

It's nice, but doesn't feel finished yet. It needs some ornamentation, but I haven't decided what yet. Maybe something to bring outside in?

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo

I am glad you posted this! It is simple and elegant... just what I am looking for to put in my garden. I like to have cut flowers stuck in the beds, in with the tomatoes and broccoli. nice job. I wonder if a pattern of acorn tops glued on might look nice.

um,   yay?

Actually, having had it for a while now, I find it looks it's best full of marigolds and anything I tried to decorate it with just looked bitty and contrived. How I love garden flowers inside!
