Do It Yourself Flower Vase Projects for October

While you’re having fun turning your home into a fall-themed haven or haunted Halloween house, we also have some fun DIY ideas for reusing your flower vases around the house. Rather than keeping those glass vases stashed away in a cupboard, upcycle them into a creative display! As much as we love fresh flowers in a beautiful vase, we think these ideas are pretty fun, too.

DIY Lamp

Simply place a strand of small string lights in a vase and – voila! – you’ve got a unique piece of lighting for a side table or bathroom. For a party, you can also turn them on their “twinkle” or “flash” mode for some added festivity.

Candy Holder

If the mouth of your vase is large enough for little hands to reach through, a vase makes a beautiful display for all the Halloween candy you’ll be passing out in a couple weeks.

Potpourri Jar

Rather than spreading potpourri petals across a table or mantle, make a fragrant display with your favorite vases. To keep your home smelling wonderful, be sure to shake up the mixture every few days.

Candle Holder

For a warm fall or Halloween display, turn your vases into candle holders. Line the bottom of the vase with a filler, like candy corn or acorns, and place a tall wax or battery-operated candle in the center.

Looking for more ideas? Come by the shop and see what we’ve put together for Halloween and fall! You can also call our florists with questions about what’s in season, caring for your fall flower arrangements, and sending a unique and unforgettable gift to someone special this month.
