Tips for a burlap container DIY

⚜️ Save plain glass florist vases when someone sends you flowers. The container I used was from a gift given to us a few years ago so it did not cost anything. Thrift stores are also a great resource for florist vases or use a discount coupon at a craft store.

⚜️ This project is a great way to utilize fabric remnants, which does not require a very large piece of material. It’s always a good idea to save remnants for projects just like this.

⚜️ The jute rope gives the container a finished look. I found my rope at the Dollar Tree and I only used a very small piece of the roll. Tuck the end into the inside of the container for a professional finished look.

⚜️ Enjoy your new burlap container with pretty fresh blooms. You can use it as a vase or as a drop in cache pot for potted plants or flowers.
