Share the gift of flowers on this first week of May with this modern DIY flower vase  by Laura Parke made by wrapping twine and colored yarn around a glass jar and adding coordinating florals.   This would also make a great Mother’s Day treat too!  For the one I made for a special friend today I did not cover the entire jar with twine.  I wrapped the jar  with twine in two different places and attached just the ends to the jar with glue, then added a few wraps of colored yarn. Such a simple way to add a modern touch to a glass jar.

Another great idea for a simple vase is reusing tins or unique soda cans like these from A Creative Mint (via creature comforts blog).

Happy May Day!!
