Tic Tac Bud Vase

This is one of those projects that seems a little goofy at first, but ends up looking really cute! We were trying to think of something quick and easy to post today using materials we already had on hand. While searching the Internet for inspiration, we came across this idea from Paper n Stitch. We thought it was just the fun and easy project we were looking for!

All you need is an empty tic tac container and some magazines, catalogues, scrap paper - anything (we'd also like to try this with fabric scraps)!

First, peel the wrapper off your tic tac box. then find the image in your magazine or catalogue you'd like on your finished bud vase, and cut a strip of paper to the right length. Then wrap you paper around the box and adhere with glue!

At this point you can fill your vase with a little water and add your favorite flower, but we think it might be a good idea to put a coat of clear poly on your vase to make it resistant to the water as you fill it. Of course, getting it wet is always a good excuse to make another one!
Pin It!

  1. Such a cute idea! My 4 yr old is addicted to Tic Tacs so we've got plenty of empty containers around :)
