Mother's Day Vases

My little ones painted these beautiful vases for their mothers  AND  here is the best part.  
The vases did not cost me a penny.  If fact I  reused them.  
Every time I went to Noodles to eat with my family we ordered something to drink.  
I generally share a lemonade with my husband and the kids share something too.  
So I saved our lemonade bottles all year.
Of course I washed them and cleaned them up.  
I used goo gone to take the sticky stuff off.

I spray painted them white and then let the kids paint their own designs.  
I put a coat of Modge Podge on the vases as well. 

I used scrap ribbon to tie a bow on the vase.

I added some flowers ( which I did buy)   and wrapped them in a bag.  

My little ones also made a Mother's Day book and an art project in art class for their mother as well. 

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

  1. I love repurposing. The gifts look lovely. We did something very similar too. :)
