Jars as Vases
One of my little tricks for flower vases is to use old jars. I was having a hard time finding shorter jars that were inexpensive when I looked at the pickle jar I was about to recycle. It is a really cute jar.
I cleaned out the jar and soaked of the label. It was only after I had collected 3 in a very short time that I realized how many pickles I actually eat! At least the label on these says they don’t have any calories.
I have since started collecting any small empty jar that catches my eye. There really are a lot of cut jars out there. I like that they are low down. I tend to put 3 to 5 small faces across the table. This makes now bunch of flowers go a long way and it still lets everyone see each other. One of the best parts is that I don’t keep them long. Oh, there are a few, like the pickle jars that I hold on to, but usually I collect them for a party or gathering and then recycle most of them. This saves so much space in my cabinets.
