You can end up with extra floral containers and need a creative way to reuse them. This guide contains uses for vases.
Goodwill always has a bunch of glass vases for sale. I decided to dress up one of these vases by wrapping it in colorful yarn. It turned out really cute!
My sister is having her birthday party done and we are using some things from our house. We have an empty vase, so what can we use it for in this party?

It looks like it has a fairly narrow neck, perhaps it could be used to hold a candle or the sticks from some balloons.
Does anybody have any ideas what to do with the standard bud vases you get flowers in from the florist?
Hospitals and nursing homes are always looking for vases. When patients leave; they take their flowers and vases. Many times visitors bring flowers from their own gardens and therefore vases are needed.
You could use the vases for gifts. Add more flowers, either silk or fresh. If you have children they can make flowers from coffee filters, construction paper ect. You can make 'candy' flowers. Take different kinds of candies, candy bars, M&Ms, etc. and tape them onto florist sticks or skewers, add the 'flowers' to the vases and give to sick friends as a cheerful gesture. Hope this helps.
If you have a garden you can glue figurines to the bottom of your vase using construction cement. Then place the vase over a piece of rebar which has been driven into the soil in your garden. These make lovely garden art for pennies.
