Homemade Gift: Club Soda Bottle Bud Vase
Since the move to Tualatin, I've been enamored of plants and mildly obsessed with sustainability. Perhaps I'm inspired by the wildlife preserve nearby, or the cherry blossoms covering the tree next to our balcony? It could also be hormones... Regardless of my motivation, our windowsill is filled with old sauce, pickle, and jam jars in which I've potted various succulents and flowers. And those plants grow; buds become blooms. We eat food; we drink beverages. And now we have cuttings and the perfect glass containers in which to gift them!
The picture above is of a stem clipped from an Easter plant, a recycled club soda bottle, remnants of yarn from finished knitting projects, and a wine charm found in my craft box. It took me about 10 minutes to make, and will hopefully be a bit of sunshine in Jacqui and John's living room for many rainy days to come.
