Beautiful Vase / February 1, 2019 / Saylor Vincent.
The best thing about growing your own plant rooters in water is that you will not be bothered by bugs, pests, no dirt, no mess and best of all you don't have to remember to feed them. The only maintenance you need is to check the water level once a month, and top up if necessary. It's virtually impossible to mess up. The water should be changed once a year, along with trimming the roots to keep your plant healthy and happy.
When working with glass vases, always be sure to clean your vase prior to starting your project. Unwanted fingerprints and other blemishes can ruin the results pretty quickly. Begin by adhering the pine tree gel clings to the outside bottom of your glass vase. Be sure to space the gel clings evenly around the vase creating a border. Repeat the same step again to create a second border right above your first layer (for photos see below). Next, begin layering the inside of the vase starting with snow flurries, then a layer of bright white blanket type snow, and finish with small pine cones towards the top of the vase, leaving 2 inches of UN-layered space (for photos see below).
"You don't like it," said the child in unmasked disappointment. "Of course I like it," rebuked the teacher. "I love it." "Your vase is absolutely beautiful," exclaimed the teacher. "Did you want to draw some flowers in it, too?" "It won't hold any water," replied the child wistfully.
This is a very easy to make craft. Hollowed-out eggshells make naturally beautiful vases for tiny flower arrangements. Save that egg shell from breakfast and make a sweet little posy vase for tiny flowers. This looks lovely on the breakfast table, on a breakfast tray or in any corner that needs a little splash of bright color.
