Upcycled Spring Floral Bouquet – An Earth Day Project

Upcycled Spring Floral Bouquet

Burlap and buttons make a great wrap for a bouquet that will last longer than a week. I love fresh flowers, but they do not love my budget. A more budget friendly idea is the tin can that I repurposed.

Tools and Materials:

Sizzix Tattered Florals and Leaf  Die Cut

Beacon Adhesive – FabriTac

Jute Cording,  Burlap, Styrofoam, Krylon Spray paint, Westcott Scissors and kraft knife.

Buttons – Tangerine Tango, Class


Clean and dry tin can. Spray paint can. Let dry and repeat.

Use Krylon to Paint Can

Place floral foam inside can.

Place Floral Foam inside

Cut burlap to fit. Adhere burlap with Quick Grip.

Cut Burlap to Fit Can

Slide buttons on to jute cording. Wrap cording around container. Adhere buttons into place. Add a second layer of buttons where desired and glue into place.

Recycled Can - Earth Day Project

Add flowers into container.

This recycled tin can vase will work for any type of flowers, fresh or hand made.
