I just came across a fun idea for making something new from Christmas ornaments. Since I’m currently in Christmas-decorating mode at our house, I thought I’d share this inspired idea with you…
These little vases would be so cute used as place cards for your holiday dinner or lined up on a window sill. They could be filled with water and stuffed with real flowers or used dry with faux or dried florals. You could even use them as a photo holder by inserting a wire in the vase!
I found two different ideas for keeping the ornaments in place; they are round, after all. This one, featured on the By Number 19 blog,uses a hand-crocheted “stand” to keep the ornament from rolling around:
For those less-crafty folks out there, Better Homes & Gardens website featured this ornament vase idea. Here, they simply glued the ornament to a small round mirror to stabilize it:
I just love this idea! I have some vintage glass ornaments that could be featured in this way. And, every time I visit local stores during the holiday season, I love looking at the new ornaments in all the fun, new holiday colors each year. This would be a great way to add some trendy fun to my holiday decor. Depending on the colors, I could see these little bud vases making an appearance at my Easter table, too.
