Repurpose Silk Flowers In a Vase

My girlfriend asked for my help in making centerpieces for her daughters upcoming rehearsal dinner.  She already spray painted clear glass vases she had around her house in a looking glass paint.  This paint gives the vase a silver mirrored effect.  The brides colors are silver and purple, so this was perfect for color scheme.  We walked around her home grabbing silk flowers off walls and pulling from behind closets gathering all the silk flowers we could in the same color scheme of purple. Good thing that happens to be colors in her home as well,    We were able to make 8 centerpieces from all the silk flowers she had around the house, and use all the glass vases from her home.  Great repurpose job and the final result is so pretty, she just might have to use them for the wedding as well! 

 

If you start by taping a criss cross pattern across the top of the vase, this will help your flowers stay in place and end result look much more professional.
