D.I.Y Pretty paper bag vase

I got this idea from a friends Instagram and it is a really handy idea if you have any nice paper bags spare that are too nice to throw away, but are just taking up space elsewhere! I have also come in to an abundance of empty jars and need creative ways of using them (ideas appreciated!). Fun, simple and really looks lovely, it also gives me an excuse to take pictures of flowers! I think it would also work really well with brown or white paper bags for a rustic look.

Dig up some paper bags and then find appropriate sized jars/glasses/vases to tuck inside each one. Then fill with water before putting inside the bags as it can be tricky poring water in once they are already in.

Cut the flower stems to fit and arrange in the jar. 

Then carefully place inside the paper bag and you’re done!

stay rad my friends!
