Over the years our household has acquired a collection of mismatched glasses and tumblers. And while they work perfectly fine on their own, we've found a another use for them&mdashvases. The wide mouth of the glass works fine for bouquets, but design company, Mono, makes a simple lid to reduce the size of the mouth of the glass to perfectly fit a single stem.

Just place the Mono Conglas on top of a glass of water and insert a single stem through the opening. We received this as a gift and it's become a great way to propagate clippings and hold single flower stem while giving our old glasses a second use.
