V is for Vase

V is for Vase

  During the school year I focus on one letter a week. For the letter V we make a vase that I save and use to decorate the tables for our Mother's day Party. This is one of my favorite crafts we recycle and Moms always love to get them as gifts! This year my daughter graduated from high school and I made them for table center pieces and gifts for the grandparents to take home! Once I started thinking about it the uses are limitless weddings, showers, birthdays,etc...
