With today being Valentine's Day, this DIY idea from Creature Comforts comes at just the right time. If you are planning a special meal at home, or just want to decorate a bit with something new, this easy project turns ordinary cans and bottles into festive vases perfect to create a special display for your loved one. These are wrapped in leather, but the idea can be applied to ribbon or twine — just about anything that suits your style.
• Tin can(s), emptied, cleaned, and dried | Make sure to use the variety with the pull-off top so that you are not left with any sharp edges. You can also use a glass cup in place of the can if you prefer. • Sharp craft scissors • Realeather Craft Lace in Metallic Gold and / or Silver. Be sure that your leather cord has two flat sides (like a fettuccini noodle...not round like a spaghetti noodle). • Hot glue gun (low heat) and glue stick(s) • Fresh flowers (and water)
