The rays of sunshine cover your week like a warm blanket and the days are long enough again to be able to enjoy them properly. Flirty summer skirts are out in force again, together with an airy summer scarf. This scarf is for your gladiolus, and you can make it yourself! While this DIY is for people who have some experience crocheting, if you’ve never crocheted a vase before that’s ok! You can find the simple instructions below.
You will need
Your favourite flowers (we used gladioli and sandersonia)
Plastic jerry can
Ball of string in your favourite colour
Hole punch and knife
How to make it
Cut the top off the jerry can with a sharp knife. Then make evenly-spaced holes (2.5 cm apart and 1 cm below the rim) all the way round.
Now crochet a 5 cm trim.
Create a frame on the inside of the vase to keep the flowers upright. Job done! Sit back and enjoy.
For a change
You can also opt to use different colours of string, or to make the trim a bit wider. Do what you want - it’s your vase!
