Fast, cute vase project – $0

While waiting for the paint to dry on my bigger project, I remembered another idea that I swiped from my mom 😀

She had these tiny little vases in her kitchen holding springs of mint, tiny flowers & other herbs.  They were an odd, yet somewhat familiar shape . . . empty Air Wick plugin air fresheners!

She tied some raffia around the neck to help disguise it, and turned the “Air Wick” to the back.  Make sure you wash the bottles well in hot soapy water or a dishwasher to get all of the scented oil out of the bottle. Here’s my version, featuring some gold coin trim from an old costume project, lavender & mint.
