Hanging Burlap Flower Vase

According to the calendar it’s not quite summer, but it sure feels like it with temps in the high 80’s.

My plants are growing so fast. It seems like I’ll blink and miss the show. The tree peonies have finished flowering already, and so many of my herbaceous peonies are blooming that I’m afraid I’ll hardly get the chance to enjoy my favorite flower.

So I thought I’d replace my front door spring wreath with something for the summer. I thought about making one of those super cute burlap wreaths that are made from a wire wreath form and cute burlap ribbon that you weave in and out. Then I thought. Why not come up with something that I can put my flowers in, like a hanging vase? Here’s what I came up with: (including burlap)

I also added a cute pin that I found at Hobby Lobby, called a candle pin accessory, for a little added charm.

Now I have my burlap and my beautiful, fragrant peonies greeting me and everyone who comes to my home.

Why didn’t I think of this before?

  1. Love this Patti! We need to take an antique / thrift shop run soon. This would be a fun way to use old costume jewelry (single clip on earrings are cheap)!
