Upcycle Boring Glass Jars Into Beautiful Vases with Lace Vase

Spring is the time of year when that last season’s canned goods and preserves are nearing depletion -- if you haven’t already eaten your way through last year’s harvest.

Instead of letting your empty canning jars gather dust in the cupboard give them a new life in the home with Lace Vase. Lace Vase is a rubber sheath that fits various sized containers and transforms those humble utilitarian items into decorative vases for flowers and foliage.

Even if canning isn't your thing you probably have plastic or glass bottles that you can divert from the waste stream by upcycling them into a vase that brings the outdoors in. The reusable plastic sheaths retail for $14.50 from the Milk Design Shop.
