Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Simple Fall Vase

My mom stopped by the other day and surprised me by bringing me flowers from her garden. She needed a way to keep them in water while she brought them over and came up with this cute vase! I think it's an awesome idea; she even told me I could use it on the blog. :)

For this vase you will need:
  • Ball Jar/glass canning jar
  • Brown paper bag/brown paper
  • Twine
  • Flowers

1. Set the Ball Jar inside the brown paper bag. 
2. Tuck the edges over.

3. Tie the twine around the neck of the jar. If the folded over edges are under the twine, it will help keep it in place.
4. Add in flowers and water. Be careful not to spill water on the bag.
5. Enjoy!
