For everyone who is on a budget or who doesn't enjoy over-priced decorations from the store!
Start with a vase and a few stems of flowers of your choice from the Dollar Store, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, or other affordable outlet.
Paint the vase using paint you have on hand or affordable paint purchased at the discount store. (I had this paint on hand due to a Mermaid Room makeover but some dollar stores carry paint. Wal-mart has two- ounce bottles of acrylic paint for super-cheap -like 50 cents- in the craft section.)
Keep in mind coordinating themes or seasonal color pallets.
Let the vase dry.
Add a strip of burlap using Mod-Podge (both found at the Dollar Store). I pulled of a couple of ropes from the burlap to use as a bow tie. This not only added a decorative element, but helped keep the burlap in place while the Mod-Podge was drying.
Put the flowers in the vase and enjoy!
