Here's an idea for bringing a splash of color to those bare spots in your yard and garden. Recycled jar gaden vase on its own.


Approximate Time: 1-2 hours




  1. To keep the wire from slipping down the stick, cut a notch into the stick with your knife or file. Or use a stick with "nubbies" on it that will hold the wire in place. Jar and wire for making garden vases.

  2. Snip off a piece of wire about 2 feet long. Experiment with different gauges of wire for the look you want.

  3. Working in the middle of the cut piece of wire, wrap it around the notch several times to secure it to the stick.

  4. Now wrap the ends of the wire that are left over around the top of the jar.
  5. Attaching wire to the jar.


  6. With a pencil or something similar, curl the ends of the wire to form tendrils.
  7. Now look for a spot in your yard or garden that needs a little color and push your vase-on-a-stick into the ground.
  8. Add a little water and some flowers from another part of the garden.
  9. Recycled jar garden vases by the house.

  10. Stand back. Enjoy. Smile.

Bonus tip: if the soil is too hard or too sandy, use a big flower pot with rocks to hold your sticks upright. :-)
