Recycled Decorative Vase

Make a vase for artificial flowers by recycling an empty thread cone and a used CD.

Approximate Time: About an hour


  • Empty thread cone

  • Old CD
  • About one yard of beads, may be new or recycled
  • Hot glue gun


Begin by running a line of glue around the narrow end of the thread cone and glue it to the center of the CD. Let dry a few minutes to firm up. When secure, glue loose beads to the CD around the bottom of the cone.

On the very outside edge of the CD, glue a line of string beads, working just a few inches at a time. Glue a second string just inside the first. Trim the top edge of the cone with another string of beads.

That's really cute! perfect for a preteen girl! You should sell them at craft shows-or at least several and give to nieces, goddaughters, etc.


as a party favor for a girls birthday party. The flowers could also be replace with a matching brush, comb, makeup brushes etc. Good luck to you!

Clever! We used to use those cones in VBS way back when but nothing as cute.
