Savin' Maven Monday: DIY Flower Vase

Happy Monday loves...

I hope all of you had a great weekend. Mine was pretty exciting. I did a little shopping and ended the weekend attending Steve Harvey's comedy show.

Today's post is a little bit different as I don't do a lot of DIY posts, however, I sorta felt like I was ignoring my creative nature by not sharing with you all, hence the reason for this post.

When my friends come by to visit they immediately get excited when they see the 4 cans of Pringles sitting on my counter. Their snack radar emerges instantaneously. However, when they get to the cans and find them empty, they yell all types of curses at me. The question that follows is always an inquiry as to why in the h#ll I have 4 empty can of chips....

Why, to make flower vases of course!! How did they not know that!

Anyhow, here's what you'll need.

**Empty Pringles cans-as many as you would like
**Contact paper-I used one roll but the actual amount will depend on how many vases you want to create
**Scissors-I forgot to picture the scissors but I figured that was pretty obvious

That's it! You're ready to begin.

STEP 1: Measure the contact paper and cut all pieces. Once you cut the first piece, you may use it as a guide to cut the remaining pieces.

STEP 2: Wrap the contact paper around the cans until they look like this...

STEP 3: Place flowers inside of your 'vase'.

STEP 4: Place 'vase' anywhere you desire.

excuse the mess in the background-I really need to clean!

How easy was that!? This project cost me all of $6 and 15 minutes. Of course I already had the cans but the contact paper and the flowers both came from the Dollar Tree. 

What do you think?
