Birch Bark Vases

I will be transforming glass jars into vases for Between Naps on The Porch Metamorphasis Monday Http://

Hubby and I traveled down to Mass. this weekend to celebrate our niece's second birthday. We had a great time! The weather was beautiful and we got to spend a lot of time with our two favorite little girls!

I didn't get a chance to hit the thrift stores this weekend, but I was inspired by the April 2010 Country Living magazine. Their cover had some great looking birch bark vases. So i decided to recreate my own.

Bailey and I trudged through the woods to find some birch bark.

I had saved some glass jars from the spaghetti sauce, and had found some canning jars at the dump.

I got out my trusty glue gun and hot glued the bark to the glass. I also cut out birch bark circles for the bottom of the vases.

TA DA... Finished Product and Top View

Now all I need is some great spring flowers to fill them... I wonder if hubby reads my blog.. :)
