DIY: Jelly Bean Flower Vase PLUS Spring Mantle

JellyBeanVaseTheFinale

In an attempt to keep things simple this week, I have a very easy project to show you. Some may remember the vase within a vase trick I did using Heart Bead Necklaces as Vase Fillers. This time I am not using bead necklaces. I used jelly beans to stay with the Easter/spring theme.

I LOVE the light springy colors of the Jelly Bean Vase!! It matches the bright sunshiny day we are having today!

All you need is a two vases and jelly beans (or other vase filler). The bigger vase use was purchase for $1 at a local dollar store.

I placed a smaller vase inside another vase. I then filled with jelly beans in between the vases. I also tied a polka dot green ribbon around the top of the vase just for fun. Finally, I put fresh pink tulips in the vase and placed on my mantle. I LOVE the light springy colors of the Jelly Bean Vase!!

Don’t the tulips look lovely in the vase?!

And maybe you’re wondering about the rest of the mantle?! Here’s the other side.

It may look familiar if you read my DIY Easter Bunny Bottle post.

And here’s a picture of the whole mantle.

If you’ve been reading my blog during the past 4 weeks, you already know about the Ruffy Spring Wreath and the Bunny Banner. I purchased the apothecary jar and the eggs inside it at Michaels using a 40% off coupon. The eggs on the candle holders (next to the Jelly Bean Vase) were made just like the ones in my Paper Flower and Egg Garland.

Hope everyone is having a bright day!
