This cute and easy DIY Craft graduation vase craft, features a trash to treasure bottle, the graduate, as well as using the tassel for a lasting gift idea.
I love making crafts, but I rarely have time for it these days. I love making handmade things for friends and family for Christmas, but that is about the only time I seem to get to do it with my busy schedule and life. Ha!
Plus I am a little rusty.
However, I wanted to make some centerpieces for a graduation party, so this is one of the finished products. We have recently remade these for our Fathers day BBQ, complete with pics of daddy and kids, and grandpa and kids.
When I originally set out to make this craft, I wanted it to be something I could reuse after the party, subtle but interesting. My son has always brought me flowers since he was able to walk. He would come toddling up to me with his chubby little fists grasping dandelions and insist I put them in water.
As he got older, he would cut flowers from my garden and thus began a lesson on when it was ok to cut a flower and when it still had time to grow. Even through high school, he would spontaneously come home from work carrying a bouquet of flowers for me.
I think he liked seeing me smile. He still does.
In honor of his flower obsession, I decided the centerpieces needed to reflect that sweet memory, and because I think he will never tire of bringing me flowers once in awhile, I now have several vases to display them in on my mantle.
