The great thing about this DIY is that you don't need much for it, and it's a simple way to give your interior an eco-friendly upgrade. You can never go wrong with upcycling, because giving stuff a new and better life is always a good thing to do! As for the contents of the vase? Keep it nice and simple. Choose a single stem of amaryllis, for example. This stately beauty symbolises pride and, as a sparkling flower, provides warmth on cold winter days.
You will need
- An empty bottle, large pot, old vase or other item that you can turn into a vase
- Amaryllis, or another flower/flowers
How to make it
Find an old item (or several items) that can function as a vase.
Fill the items with water and insert a stem or several flowers. We used the amaryllis because it's one of the stars of this season's Trend Collection, and because its long stem makes it a gorgeous solo performer. Also, the vase we used for this DIY is ideal for a relatively heavy flower like the amaryllis.
